About Us

We are a steady growing team contributing our united efforts and time for this website. Initially, we started as a group of deaf people with the purpose of keeping everyone aware of the RPWD Act which is yet to be tabled in the Indian Pariliamant and we hope to gain the public support to achieve this.

Once after the RPWD 2013 Act is passed, we plan to form a committee with the goal of interpreting the clauses of the RPWD into Indian Sign Language (ISL) which will benefit the deaf people who are deprived of the knowledge due to the communication barrier.

Next, we will open a forum on each clause of the Act and seek the Public opinion for the future amendments of the RPWD Act that will help the persons with disabilitites in India.

 We are recruting new members who will contribute for the above goals. If you wish to be a part of this proactive team, please e-mail your request to info@inspiralive.com along with clear explanation of your profession and experiences which you feel will contribute to the strength of our goals.

About inspiralive

inspiralive is a small company co-founded by the two deaf brothers, Aqil and Bilal who, with years of experience, decided to put their heads together and try to give more value-added services for the empowerment of the differently abled people.

Other Types of Disabilitites

Initially, this website was launched with the goal of helping all types of disablitites. However, in the early stages of development, we have gained the support from the deaf associations and started developing the pages for the deaf people. As time goes by, we will be gradually adding other types of disabilitites in our effort to give them the empowerment.

Organisations who wish to utilize this website for assisting the persons of different disabilitites apart from deaf, are welcome to contact us at info@inspiralive.com and we will be more than happy to dedicate some webpages to them and collaborate with them in future.
