ANCHORAGE, ALASKA, March 7, 2001: India's Special Olympians, a team of handicapped individuals competing in special sports, landed in Alaska recently. Appealing to a crowd honoring a reception for the crew, a representative for the Cultural Association of India solicited volunteers to cook for the hungry athletes. Apparently the flight from India offered no familiar food in the form of rice and curry for the team. Collaborating with the Hilton hotel, the Asian community pulled together to provide the Olympians with plenty of spicy home-cooked delicacies with lots of rice. The Special Olympics serve to provide a sense of self-esteem to physically- and mentally-challenged individuals.
