4th of Jan 2018, World Braille Day, Nethra Vidyalaya Junior & Degree College students walked thanking Braille for his great invention to support their learning. They walked telling the whole world how accomplished and confident they are being raised under the guidance of Sri Chinna Jeeyar Swami. Their medals and their skills are exceptional. Their curriculum supports a holistic nature. Students of JIVA Veda Vidyalayam also joined the walk. Such a treat to the eyes when you see young children studying Vedam walk with visually challenged children supporting them. As Swamiji always says, you are rich when you serve the poor. You are healthy when you support an ill person. These students studying Vedam walked hand-in-hand supporting the visually challenged and yet courageous students!
On this occasion, Swamiji addressed everyone asking how much money and energy one spends these days just to satisfy the thirst of Eye! These children with no ability to see the world are getting ready to contribute and give back to the society. They have been winning medals for the state in athletics and other sports. Their alumni have secured their dream jobs!
Several people around the streets have gathered and appreciated their performances, their dedication to study, their skills.
