Reframing The Regal by Designer by Isha Gupta Tayal was an amalgamation of British Empire and royal India.

We aspire to be like them in our real lives. Then we see Super Heroes, who fight battles in real lives to protect others. The Army, Navy, Airforce and the Police are constantly battling for our peace and happiness. But even above them are ‘persons with disabilities’ who are the Real Heroes that fight daily battles with taboos, society, their own health, insecurities and a constant fight to prove their abilities over disabilities. “
