This is one of the stories of a man who overcame his disability of being visually impaired and continues to lead a life like a regular person. Check out his story in his own words.

He Was Blind, And Married His Love

"I was declared blind by doctors just minutes after I was born. The medical facilities for the blind are not that great in UP so I was sent to Bombay when I was 16 for better treatment but my first surgery failed. I accepted my destiny and completed my schooling from the Victoria Memorial School for the blind. I loved my school life - I made great friends and learnt to be independent from them. We didn't have a lot of money, but I was desperate to study further, so I would make and sell agarbattis after college and then study until late at night to keep up. I also performed in an orchestra from time to time and saved every penny for my post graduation and finally got a job with the State Bank of India!

I love my job - my colleagues are amazing. They taught me how to take the train independently and even how to cook my rice and pulses. When I reached a point where I was making enough money, I married the love of my life. I've never seen her, but I know she has a beautiful heart, because there hasn't been a day when she's made me feel like I lack something - we've lived a beautiful life together with our daughter."
"What advice would you give people?"

"After 55 years of having no sight, the only thing I can say is that life is beautiful, if you want it to be. The second you love and accept the way you are, the world becomes a wonderful place to live. Often people ask me what my struggles are because I'm blind, but I have no struggles; no problems. The only reason for that, is that I have love in my heart and I feel it all around me from my wife at home to my colleagues at work. When I hear stories of people suffering from depression or young children committing suicide - I feel like there's where the problem is. The lack of love is the real handicap anyone can have and these are the people who need to be loved even harder."
