It is indeed a pleasure and a great privilege for me to deliver this memorial lecture as a tribute to Lakshmi Nizamuddin, a woman of rare virtue and formidable stature for whom I had the deepest admiration. Lakshmi Nizamuddin was a woman who was not in any way handicapped by her disability but rather displayed courage, passion and amazing strength to pursue agendas that were of significant socio-economic importance and transformational in their objective. She committed herself to the cause of seeking social equality for the Handicapped and was President of the National Society for Equal Opportunities for the Handicapped, a post she held from 1975 and organized the first ever National Sports for the Handicapped in Bangalore the same year.
