What generally normal young people won't dare to think of so easily, these few daring people with disabilities are planning to achieve this year. I am talking about Divyanjan Siachen Glacier expedition 2021 that was flagged off yesterday morning by our Hon'ble Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment Dr. Virendra Kumar. What could be the better day for this than 15th August, our Independence Day. So, this is a world record team of People with Disabilities starting an expedition to Siachen Glacier. The Expedition starts from New Delhi. The team will drive via Manali to Leh and from there will prepare for the Siachen Glacier World Record Expedition. The vehicle convoy carrying Divyanjan Siachen Glacier expedition team started from Dr Ambedkar International Centre (DAIC) , 15 Janpath, New Delhi.

One of the significant role of DAIC, being a premier autonomous research body, is to research and provide policy feed to empower marginalized communities in India and to bring socio-economic transformation in the society. That's why presence of Director, DAIC, Vikas Trivedi becomes more significant to grace the flag off ceremony.

Divyanjan Siachen Glacier expedition 2021 is being executed by "Team CLAW" that is formed by Indian Armed Forces Veterans with a sole aim of empowering people with disabilities. That means CLAW team is taking care of the operational part of the expedition. On top of it, the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment is supporting the world record expedition of people with disabilities to Siachen Glacier. So, both operations and administration of the expedition are in strong hands for the best possible support.

On this occasion of flagging off Divyanjan Siachen Glacier expedition 2021, Dr Virender Kumar said-
"Whether it's about exploring the depths of the ocean or conquering the heights of mountains, ‘Operation Blue Freedom' would empower Divyanjans to accomplish their adventurous dreams." 
He further added-
"I am encouraged by our physically disabled armed personnel' great willpower as they prepare to break a new world record. I also believe that including young students in such journeys will help to empower them. I think there should be more of these types of events in the future."
