The Project named ‘Wow-will on Wheels’ was flagged off from the campus of Sathyabama University, Chennai to mar the gap between the abled and differently-abled people while driving on roads. The students of the University have redesigned a Renault Duster to enable Deepa to drive it using hand-led controls. The university also helped Deepa conceptualize and execute the drive with around 10 students accompanying her throughout her journey across the country.
