An Autism Awareness initiative by Pure Hearts


Pure Hearts, a children’s initiative for children in need, organised Pure Hearts Sapno Ki Udaan 2024 at Worldmark, Gurugram, to raise awareness of autism and celebrate the diversity and uniqueness of individuals on the autism spectrum.

It witnessed a meaningful amalgamation of sentiments and the unfolding of the talent of all participants in the seventh successful year of running Sapno Ki Udaan.

This magical evening filled with music, dance, and drama was the dedicated efforts of Pure Hearts children, students from participating city schools, NGOs, and renowned artists on the autism spectrum who came together to spread awareness and sensitivity and augment support for an inclusive platform.  

Community inclusion

The inspiring performances of children with special needs and underprivileged children from non-profits such as Vishwas Vidyalaya, A.L.P.A.N.A. Odissi dance artists with special needs and the exemplary on-ground support of Pure Hearts parents and volunteers added to the magic. The soulful vocals of Shivang Agarwal from Action for Autism and the percussion of Sharavanjeet set the inspirational note for the evening, showcasing the exceptional talent of artists on the autism spectrum.

We were enthralled by the movement and grace of Kathak artists from the Guru Jayashree Acharaya—Rasik Performing Arts troupe. The heart-winning performances of children from non-profits such as Bagiya, Neev Learning Centre, and Lotus Petal Foundation were highly appreciated.

The audience, a crucial part of this celebration, was treated to the music and dance performances by young students from various Gurugram schools. Shri Ram School Aravali & Moulsari, Scottish High International School, The Shriram Millennium School, Heritage Xperiential Learning School, Kadipur Government School, The Heritage International Xperiential Learning School, DPS International, Lotus Valley International School, Ridge Valley School, and mime performance from the students of Kunskapsskolan Gurgaon, highlighted the spirit of inclusion and celebrations.

Ranveer Singh Saini, a renowned golf player, Vineeta Jerath, co-founder & editor of Suburb, and young members of Pure Hearts, inaugurated the event.

Ranveer was diagnosed with autism at the age of two, and today, at 21, he is a beacon of pride to the Nation. He has created history by winning gold for India at the Special Olympics World Games in 2015, being the LIMCA record holder for four consecutive years, and receiving the highest sports honour in the state, the “Bhim Award.”

An added joy to the celebrations was the stalls of children on the autism spectrum displaying creatively handmade products by the non-profits Action for Autism and Advitiya Foundation. Delicious baked cakes and cookies by Vidushi Dhingra and Anisha were also quite in demand.

Poonam Agarwal and Shivani Sobti from Pure Hearts shared, “It’s indeed overwhelming to see the incredible talent of all children and how Pure Hearts dedicated efforts and sentiments resonate with the community, with an astounding response of the audience is encouraging.”

Pure Hearts founder Shalu J. said, “In the collective endeavour, we celebrate the diversity of life and recognise the strengths of children on the autism spectrum, creating a comfortable environment and learning opportunities to integrate them fully into the mainstream.”
