Everything for a Cause!!!

There is this first time experience for everybody sometime or the other. Recently I had mine, of helping out a blind school in preparing Braille books for blind children.

HP has a Social service initiative tie up with many an NGO's of which 'Sahana Charitable trust' is one. Here qualified blind candidates work extensively in preparing Braille text books to poor vision impaired children who cannot afford the text books.

Our task was to read out paragraphs from the textbooks either in Kannada or English to the person who simultaneously types it on a Braille typewriter. I was moved by this experience just seeing the proficiency with which the person could type and more so because the language I was doing it was in Kannada.

All in all I think 4 pages of dictation went a long way in creating a desire in me to do something more for the cause.
