Margdarsi was created by a group of benevolent people led by Prof. Satya Mahapatra, who is the first person from Odisha state to be qualified as an Audiologist & Speech Pathologist in 1983, with a Master’s degree from All India Institute of Speech & Hearing under University of Mysore.

The dream to set up an Institute for comprehensive care of persons with disabilities was conceived in the year 1982. At that time Odisha had no facility for diagnosis or treatment for Communication Disorders. People who got affected by some kind of impairment were forced to live a life of disabled 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 as a Not for Profit, Non Government Organization.  The objective of Margdarsi was to create infrastructure with path breaking Medical Rehabilitation services and give the Persons with Disability a chance to come back to the mainstream with Dignity.

Founder’s Message

Prof. Satya Mahapatra

Prof. Satya Mahapatra

When we started making ways for people left out of mainstream due to disability, we Odisha had very little to cheer about. We got rewarded with satisfaction beyond words, when people heard our appeal. The small beginning in 1995 has blossomed into hope for the handicapped persons. Many non-verbal children are chattering away in normal school which stands testimony to the success of Margdarsi and reflects collective efforts of the staff,
