On January 19, Javed Abidi, Honorary Director, N.C.P.E.D.P. was conferred the 'Super Idol' lifetime achievement award by I.B.N.7., a media organization for his invaluable contribution to the disability sector.

Abidi, along with 17 other individuals, was honoured at the I.B.N.7. Bajaj Allianz Super Idols Award function. The event held in Mumbai is a first in the Indian media world.

Speaking at the occasion, Rajdeep Sardesai, Editor-in-Chief, I.B.N. Network said, “There is so much negativity in the media. Unless we focus on such positive stories, how will we inspire the next generation?”

Taking up the issue of accessibility, Bollywood actor, Aamir Khan who was the Chief Guest at the event remarked, “Disabled people still do not have proper access to public places. Public infrastructure should be made barrier-free so that disabled people enjoy comfortable access to all places like everybody else.”
