Visit to blind school


Visited a nearby blind school on 3rd March. I had visited it once
earlier and interacted with the kids there. These visits are an
initiative of Nirzaree, a friend of mine.She is a very kind hearted
person and really cares for those kids, well,actually, she cares for
everyone around her.


So this time, she called up and gave me a 5 min notice to be
there. However, someone had locked my room from the outside and I got
seriously delayed for that reason.By the time I reached, the others were almost about to leave.


Our visits have mostly been very casual. We go and we spend time
with the kids, play with them, tell them stories. Playing Antakshiri
is of course a favourite. But this I wanted to do something more. I
wanted to listen to the problems of this kids and help them. I dont
know how, I know I want to. I am a programmer and may be I can write
some useful software  for them. May be I can ask cash rich
Surtis to donate money (Surat is after all the city of diamonds and
Gujarat has quite a few millionaires and billionaires) because I am
good at convincing people (yes you can call me a good sales guy). So
I went and talked to a few teachers and got some views. However, I
will have to meet the members of the trust that runs the place. That
will happen on Saturday


I am interested in knowing the kind of software they use in their
computer labs. Probably that would give me some idea how I can I help
them.


Am planning to buy them a braille copy of all of Harry Potter
books. Now that I get extra monthly income through my Sun CA stipend,
this would be quite affordable :)
