On World Disability Day (Dec 3), people with reduced mobility visited Marina Beach for the first time. CE  talks to city officials to find out if they have solutions to make beaches permanently accessible.
CHENNAI: Chennai has the distinction of having the world’s second longest urban beach, with over 50,000 visitors every weekend alone, heading to the Marina. But despite being a resident of Chennai for 15 years, Naveen* was able to experience the joy of beach waters for the first time only this Sunday. Residing in Avadi, he and his mother made their way all across the city for this one very special day, where many like him who have reduced mobility could finally experience the wonders of the sea.
