As we celebrate what would’ve been Sneha’s 16th birthday today, we’re heartened by how much her presence permeated our worlds, our ideas and our actions. Snehadhara Foundation embodies the idea of inclusion, making our every move into another step forward in this ongoing movement.
It was Sneha who germinated within us the idea that to be included is such a fundamental right that it ought to be enshrined in our conscience. Her joie de vivre, her cheeriness, her abundance of affection and her every ready hug taught so many of us to embrace people for who they are and not what we make them to be.
So many of our learnings, our research, our action plans and more are rooted in the unabashed cheer that Sneha has stood for.
Sneha’s energy for life and passion towards the world was infectious. Even at 5, she seemed to transform places and people and would go on to inspire and champion inclusion through the creation of Snehadhara. And today on 21st February, on what would’ve been her 16th birthday, we count our blessings for the presence of Sneha; we celebrate her life; and we pray for her legacy to inspire the crusade of inclusion for years to come.
