BEYOND BELIEF 2

#
Director: Abhijit Das Gupta.
Something remarkable happened for the first time in Asia. 16 physically challenged persons wrote a new chapter in the history of the Asian soil. They participated in the “Beyond Belief expedition challenge”. In two nights and three days, they traversed through mountain paths, fording water bodies and navigating through forests infested with snakes and scorpions to prove to the world that those labeled “disable” are able and capable. The expedition was to showcase their endurance power, skill and ability of the “differently able” persons. They went to the deep forests around the Garumara range in North Bengal, lived in camps and passed through areas that normal people would dread to dare. The 4 teams : Alpha: Asit Kr Pal – Instructor Sukanta Mondal – impairment of Upper limb Jaydev Mondal – impairment of Lower limb Nitai Khan – Visually challenged Dipankar Goldar – Speech & hearing impaired Bravo: Chandana Biswas – Instructor Probir Sarkar – impairment of lower limb Binod Kr Singh – impairment of upper limbs Tarun Bag – visually challenged Pinto Goldar – Speech & hearing impaired Charlie: Kamalika De – Instructor Rimo Saha – impairment of upper limb Sanjay Das – impairment of lower limb Kalidas Das – visually challenged Santanu Sen – Speech & Hearing impaired Delta: Tapas Kangshabanik – Instructor Bholanath Dolui – impairment of upper limb Ujjal Ghosh – impairment of lower limb Shyamal Kr Roy – visually challenged Subhankar Goldar – Speech & hearing impaired The area is the habitat of king cobras, leopards, elephants… Pushing a wheel chair across shallow jungle rivulets tested human stamina to its limits. This was an epic saga of man against elements… flesh against stone…a quiet communion with nature. All about the insatiable urge of human beings to tread un-trodden grounds. 16 individuals ventured not to conquer mountains …. Forests …. and rivers… but to conquer themselves Their odysseys – Beyond Belief.
