Kitna asaan hai humare liye,
Ek nazar mein soch lena ki wo asamarth hain.
Jabki unka junoon, unki har jeet ye batati hai, ki wo kitne samarth hain.
Shaan se uthe sir ko pataa hai wo kitne samarth hain.
Paani ki geraiyon ko pataa hai wo kitne samarth hain.
Har ruki nazar ko pataa hai wo kitne samarth hain.
Har nishane ko pataa hai wo kitne samarth hain.
Jeet par goonj rahe Rashtragaan ke har shabd
ko pataa hai wo kitne samarth hain.
Chalo, inki misaal se duniya ki socch badlein.
Chalo, ek aeisi duniya banein,
jahan ye apne khwab ko khud pura kar paein.
Kyonki… ye samarth hain.
Samarth by Hyundai
Manzil Unki. Saath humara.
For Hyundai, mobility is not just about cars or transportation. Mobility is both a word that captures the essence of Progress for Humanity, and is also an act that opens infinite doors to a world of opportunities. That people with different abilities or with certain disabilities should have equal access to this world is a natural extension of what the company believes in, and has delivered for decades.
Samarth is a manifestation of this belief.
Samarth is a simple world that means capable. And it is the capability of every single human that adds to the progress of humanity. That a few among us should be restricted in achieving what they can as individuals, is a loss for the entire human race.
Samarth is a step towards creating a more aware and inclusive society towards people with disabilities in India.
With technology, partnerships, product innovations, and storytelling, Samarth is about turning the world into a level-playing field for all. Because disabilities that some of us have to live with should not define how we live, or what we can - or cannot - achieve.
Samarth is also an initiative to change mindsets and spark change. A change that will make the world see the true capability of the people with disabilities. A shift that will make everyone push as one for a more equitable and inclusive environment. Helping create a world where we can all grow into the best versions of ourselves. Together, through mobility and for humanity.
People with disabilities in India. Overcoming challenges and winning.
In India’s diversified and vast population, people with one or more disabilities are not hard to come across. The 2011 population census data reveals disabilities to be around 26.8 million, constituting 2.21% of India’s total population. People working for rights of disabled and other social workers are of an opinion that these numerals provided in the census are in a very small percentage of the actual data. World Bank data for India suggests the number to be between 40 and 80 million. Inferences from the data secured from across the globe suggest that disabled persons in India are significant in comparison to other developed economies.
Despite significant proportion of the total population in India, persons with disabilities live a very harsh life.
India is still lacking behind in providing infrastructure to disabled persons despite several efforts and campaign. It is high time that we work together to create a stress free environment for such persons, and break the barriers with the aim of changing negative attitudes about persons with disabilities, and turn it into a positive recognition of their attributes, skills and their sole rights.
The initiative is aligned with Hyundai’s global vision of Progress for Humanity. Where the larger goal is to enable an inclusive, progressive world through the power of mobility.
The humane pillar is one of the key pillars under this vision. It supports our brand vision and gives us a unique direction. It provides a fertile ground for the establishment of communication with customers. With the operative words being kind, sympathetic, and humanising.
Samarth pushes these beliefs and aspirations by enabling inclusivity in society, through empowerment of the people with disabilities.
