Purple Day is celebrated internationally on March 26, to raise awareness about Epilepsy. The neurological disorder affects around 50 million people worldwide but there is still a lot of misinformation and stigma surrounding it. The day exists to create awareness about epilepsy and to encourage the one suffering from epilepsy to reach out to their community
