The North Zone Cultural Competition, Umang for Special Children Season-6, was held at GEMS Cambridge International School, Hoshiarpur, in collaboration with the Punjab State Special Olympics India (Punjab chapter), the District Special Olympics Association, Hoshiarpur, and JSS Asha Kiran Special School and Teacher Training Institute.

The two-day event was inaugurated by Deputy Commissioner Komal Mittal. The Deputy Commissioner said there is no dearth of talent among special children. The talent of such children is being honed by teachers.

The special children welcomed the chief guest with flowers. The national anthem was sung by the children of JSS Asha Kiran and Pingalwara Special School, while the guest items were presented by the children of Asha Kiran School.
