Rising Flame’s unique event series Ask Me; Don’t Assume is a personal, interactive, and intimate event which creates a safe and open space for people to engage with persons with disabilities and other diversities without hesitation, fear, inhibitions or political correctness. We believe open conversations and awareness are the first steps to social inclusion.
Through this series of small and personal events, we have reached 105 people in person, most of them youth.
Ask Me; Don’t Assume sessions:
February 23, 2018 at the JJ College of Architecture.
Panelists: Nidhi Goyal, Sharang Pawar, and Kamlesh Gade.

On December 3 2018 we took this event online. We digitally hosted ask me don’t assume in collaboration with the digital magazine First Post. And the reach as intended was immense! In a month the video conversation had over 60000 views.
Priti Shetty, co – founder of The Pitch on Wheels and a wheelchair user along with Nidhi Goyal sat across the camera to answer some of the bizarre questions that they encounter in their daily lives.
