Dr. AlbyJohn IAS
Regional Deputy Commissioner, South Greater Chennai, Corporation

Wholeheartedly appreciate the efforts of ‘Seva-in-Action’ and SPASTN to promote quizzing among the differently abled students. He was introduced to Quizzing in the early years of my schooling and it helped me a lot in my civil service preparations and also in my career. Moreover, the joy of cracking an answer in a Quiz from the various clues in the question is an unparalleled bliss.  He got an opportunity to be an impromptu Quiz Master and He overjoyed to see the enthusiasm of the participants and was happy to see the same joy of Quizzing among the students which I used to experience as a student. It is a wonderful initiative to remove the barriers in academics and I am sure this would make our students more confident in dealing with other challenges in life also. Best wishes to all future editions of Quizabled!”

Mr. Surappa
Vice Chancellor, Anna University, Chennai

Quizabled event proves that disability cannot prevent differently abled students in reaching greater heights in academics as well as in all the other areas.  It’s a great initiative taken by SPASTN, Seva-in-Action and LTI in bringing the differently abled students from schools all over Chennai and nearby districts. The quizzing program provides an opportunity to showcase their knowledge and skill sets. There are many great people who are born differently abled and achieved so much with their ability. Wishing all the student’s good luck in their future.
