Lucky are those who are blessed with sight. We should be happy that they can see this beautiful world. For people like us who do not have sight are deprived of this. This is Salma of Mdakasira village, Anantapur District and I feel fortunate to have seen God. I lost one eye completely as I was hit by a broken glass piece. I was depressed as I felt that I has become a burden to her parents. My father’s fruit business was not running well and became difficult to survive.
I also wished to go to school along with other children. That wish got fulfilled with the grace of H H Swamiji. I came to know about the School for the blind being run at JIVA. I convinced my parents and started for the city and completed Inter. It is difficult to walk and manage your affairs without help. Only one of my eye is partly working and there is no one to blame. I was feeling very bad, but I got relief after joining School. There are so many like me and everyone has their own pathetic tale. I got confidence that I have a bright future if I work hard. The teachers there made us capable people. And, slowly, we became experts in English language also. We could converse well and also learned communication skills. I also completed professional TTC course. The great help Sri Swamiji is filled our lives with brightness.
I will always be indebted to this immense help.There are so many people with lots of money but they lack the quality of loving fellow human beings. If we can notice this and inculcate the habit of serving those underprivileged people blind will be benefited.
