The Spirit of UDAAN
The Birth of UDAAN for the Disabled

The Foundation for Spastic and Mentally Handicapped Persons (FSMHP) and its primary project: UDAAN for the Disabled, was started by a simple but very brave and determined housewife, Mrs. Shubhra Mukherjee, wife of a successful medical practitioner of Delhi, India: Dr. Arun Mukherjee, MBBS, MD (Medicine). This was her way of thanking society for the love, appreciation and benefits that society had showered on us.

The term, UDAAN means flight in Hindi, the National Language of India. It was chosen as our primary name because of our registered logo (top right) which shows a differently abled person getting up from the wheel chair, running and flying away like a free bird. Since we are dealing with various Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (medical terms), hence the primary name was firther qualfied as UDAAN for the Disabled or FSMHP-UDAAN.

As time went on, UDAAN grew from strength to strength, gaining National and International recognition, as a brief glance on our Biodata or CV shows:
