Changing the way the world sees the differently-abled, India's first amputee calendar is out and is giving neck-to-neck competition to the celebrity calendars. With prosthetics on, 13 amputees pose with poise for a calendar for 2017, brought out by Mission Smile, as part of their project - Rising Above. Preeti Rai, Co-founder, Mission Smile, said, "In India, our notion of beauty is different.
