A car rally with blind navigators


Mumbai : In a unique car rally, 100 enthusiastic blind navigators displayed their skills by directing their partner drivers through a 65 km route in the sixth edition of the Blind Man’s Car Rally here Sunday.

Armed with a route map in braille, the navigators guided the drivers through a series of check points.

Organised by Round Table India in association with the National Association for the Blind (NAB), the rally was aimed at raising funds for its projects under ‘Freedom through Education’.

“The aim of this rally is to create awareness that we all are responsible for our society, it matters least whether we are visually impaired or not. We can bring change in the country only if we have concern and correct attitude. This rally is a small effort to join hands and fight against odds,” NAB’s secretary general K. Ramkrishna said.

The rally was flagged off by former India cricket captain Dilip Vengsarkar.

“I am delighted to be associated with such a noble initiative of Round Table India, which is contributing to the movement of educating millions of underprivileged children,” he said.
