These children with special abilities showcased their talent in sports by participating in various games. The annual sports day of Hellen Keller institute for deaf and deafblind children began with a march pass by the hearing impaired and hearing and visually impaired students, where they showed how they too can walk with the perfect synchronization of hands and legs like that of normal children. Following this, the hearing impaired children performed yoga. It was amazing to see them follow the instructions in a perfect manner given by the instructors. Surya Namaskar was also performed by these students. Later on various games were arranged for the students, which were specially designed for them. These included searching objects from soap foam, for deafblind students. Another game was hit the doll for those who were just admitted in the school, Agarbatti packing running race and others.
