Imparting the gift of sight!

Imparting the gift of sight!
Nestled in a lane in crowded Dadar is the 117-year-old home of close to 150 visually impaired girls from all over the country. A school that was started originally as a relief shelter for boys and girls who had been blinded in the devastating famine in Solapur in the 1880s, the 'Kamla Mehta School For The Blind' now continues to house, and provides education to visually impaired girls right from pre-primary to Class VII. The school was founded in 1900 by social worker Anna Millard with the American-Marathi Mission, upon being moved by the plight of the children struck by famine.

ADC photographer Azad Shrivastav captures the children in action while being trained in various skills like music, dance, home science, and boasts of amenities like a language lab, a gymnasium, a hobby centre and a library.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)The ruling emotion today will be passion. You will feel like chatting with your beloved the whole day. However, you will incur expenses and Ganesha advises you to remain balanced. But if you have decided already to go the whole hog, make fully sure you are in the right trappings. You will thereby experience love and warmth for one and all.
