    Beauty pageant for deaf -mute women

    Beauty pageant for deaf -mute women

    An unusual fashion contest that will be held on Sunday has arranged for interpreters who know sign language. The 20-odd women participants are all deaf-mute and will field questions from celebrities, including Prahlad Kakkar, on their way to victory.

    Miss Deaf India will crown a two-day awareness exposition for the hearing impaired to be held on December 29-30 at Birla Matushri Sabhagriha. Deaf Expo 2012 is a series of lecture-demonstrations organized by a group of entrepreneurs which calls itself 'Deaf Leaders'. Actor Vivek Oberoi will be chief guest. The expo will focus attention on the use of communication and technology for the hearing impaired. "We wish to create awareness about sign language as a means of communication over oral speech," says organizer Alok Kejriwal, who was born deaf, through his interpreter. "Sign language is the mother tongue of deaf people just as Marathi and Gujarati are to the rest," he added.

    Kejriwal says lip reading proves difficult from a distance and in group situations.

    "Moreover, schools are unable to provide expensive digital hearing aids to children. In the US, there are advanced video-calling devices that help the deaf for they do not have to rely on the internet to talk to people," he says.

    Routinely, little communication falls through the sieve. The hearing impaired use electronic aids, sign language and gestures to their advantage. The Navyuvak Navratri Mandal for the Deaf in Borivli has enlisted members' cellphone numbers on its website with a simple instruction that says 'SMS only'. Its president Tushar Wani and his friends conduct their regular work activity, arrange outings, camps and organixe a dandiya celebration for deaf-mute people using interpreters and phone messages.
