A beautiful initiative is known as Oddity: Don’t Bend, Don’t Blend, a calendar which openly talks about the equal acceptance towards the disabled, has come to light and as a writer to know about the world’s various creative people gives me more excited to write this story. Introducing the subject in which it tells the tale of disabled people and their struggles and how as a society we can do many things to build a world that looks at them as common folk, is a journey of its own.

The project was launched on 3rd December 2020 on The International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD). This one-of-a-kind project focuses on empowering those disabled for inclusive, equitable, and sustainable development according to the anticipation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, in which it pledges to “leave no one behind” highlighting disability as a converging issue that is expected to consider in the implementation of its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The project allows models to spread awareness regarding their disability, journey, and the efforts they’ve put into the disability sector. This initiative will recognize their hard work to bring change to society. The motive behind this initiative is to promote an understanding of the disabled and organize support for their rights with the dignity and well-being of disabled people.
The organizers of this project Rishabh Dahiya and Purva Mittal have played the most important roles of their lives from the point of inception itself. Making such a project a successful one, especially during the pandemic period is an act of bravery and strong will. “It was an exhilarating experience for me. I enjoyed every bit of the shoot. I was anxious about how to pull off this idea amidst the pandemic. We wanted to create a safe environment for all our guest models. I hope I was able to capture the essence of strength and joyfulness of people with disabilities through my lens. I want the calendar to exhibit diversity in disability and promote inclusivity,” said Rishabh Dahiya
