Let’s try the world and a movie blind-folded


1
BENGALURU: How do visually impaired people watch a movie? Sharmi Thapa, a 32-year-old visually impaired, loved the last movie she watched, Bajirao Mastani. The sounds of horses stirred her imagination and the Pinga dance reminded her of Dola Re Dola, which she vividly recalls as Madhuri Dixit and Aishwarya Rai dancing clad in bright red. Sharmi lost her eyesight in 2009.
An ongoing campaign called Garv Se includes a project, to help a person understand Sharmi’s experience. The campaign started by Vishnu Soman, head of community projects of EnAble India and Shanti Raghavan, founder of EnAble India, aims to reach 10,000 Indians by December 3, World Disability Day.
