Quite a few beauties have a golden heart, and Manushi Chillar is one of them. Manushi graced the exhibition of a young boy Ayaan’s paintings and spent enough time to understand each of his works. This gesture is rare in Bollywood as most of them grace the event and speed off in few minutes.
The vide ranging subjects of this specially gifted boy’s paintings are about history, geography, science, current topics, civilization, wars and wildlife.
Being a sportsman himself, Ahmedabad based Ayaan’s father Zubair Jariwala, an advertising professional himself, feels that a match is never won or lost till the last ball is bowled. Zubair is an ex-cricketer and an ex Ranji Trophy player. The young boy Ayaan was super excited to have Manushi Chillar visit his exhibition.
“I would announce to all the parents not to loose hope when their child is diagnosed with a rare disease. Every child has the potential and the parents ought to recognize it and nurture the young one to pursue his passion as this will keep the child as well as the parents motivated rather than getting depressed or feeling pity for themselves,” mentioned who was grateful to Manushi Chillar to have made her appearance for the boy’s painting exhibition.
In a heartwarming display of communal solidarity, the story of Ayaan, a 12-year-old prodigy from Gujarat, India, has touched hearts far and wide. Diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) at the tender age of eight—a condition so rare it occurs in one in a million—Ayaan’s journey has been nothing short of inspirational. Despite the daunting odds, including the disease’s singular, globally approved treatment, Ayaan’s family, hailing from a modest middle-class background, faced an uphill battle in securing his medical care.
The treatment, Vitilipso, a precious vial procured from a UK-based company, has offered a beacon of hope. Through the relentless efforts of countless individuals and the overwhelming support of society across India, particularly from Gujarat, a fund of approximately two and a half to three crore rupees was raised. This remarkable feat has covered the first year of Ayaan’s treatment, showing significant improvement in his condition.
Parallel to his medical battle, Ayaan’s passion for art blossomed. His exceptional talent has not only earned him a UNESCO award but also the esteemed title of UNESCO Heritage Artist. Ayaan’s art, celebrated for its depth and beauty, reflects his profound love for history and a keen interest in global wars. His works have transcended borders, captivating audiences worldwide and spreading awareness about DMD.
In an effort to continue his treatment and celebrate his extraordinary talents, Ayaan’s parents have organized an art show in Bombay. This event is not just an exhibition of Ayaan’s artistry but a call to action, urging everyone to contribute to his ongoing treatment. It’s a plea for support, through press and digital platforms, inviting the community to donate and ensure Ayaan’s fight against DMD is one he does not face alone. Let us come together, for every small contribution paves the path for Ayaan’s brighter, healthier future.
