A group of people affected by personal tragedies came together to setup the society Margdarsi under the leadership of Prof. SatyaMahapatra, who happens to be the first Specialist in communication Disorder from Odisha. The objective of Margdarsi was to create requisite infrastructure for comprehensive treatment of Persons with Disability and give the persons with all kind of disadvantages a chance to come Back to the Mainstream with Dignity. The dream to set up a platform for comprehensive care of persons with disability was conceived in the year 1982. At that time
Odisha had no facility for diagnosis or treatment for communication disorder etc. People who got affected by some kind of impairment were forced to live a life of disability due to lack of professional intervention. The vision of creating world class infrastructure for the suffering multitude in Odisha became a reality in 1995 when Margdarsi was formed.
