The woman who restores ‘vision’

CHENNAI: As we enter the Tamil Nadu Association of the Blind (TNAFB), Tondiarpet, we hear a cheerful banter in the open high-raised veranda. Kanchana, Shanmugam, Lakshmi and Priya were busy stitching and chopping vegetables. Sounds like a home science class, right? Actually, it’s a group of over 30 people with visual disabilities, ranging from low to compete loss of vision, training in orientation and mobility (O&M) by the only qualified trainer for 35 years in India.
Meet Magie Santha Kumari, a teacher, trainer and a mentor who has dedicated her life for the welfare of the visually challenged for over three decades.
