In this episode of Eyeway Conversations, George Abraham speaks with Tiffany Brar, founder of Jyothirgamaya Foundation, a non-profit organization based in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala that trains blind people of all ages in Braille, mobility, basic computer use, and life skills.

Tiffany, who became blind as an infant due to oxygen toxicity, completed her primary education in England where she found an inclusive setup, doing things like other sighted children with a special resource person dedicated to her. But when her father was posted back to India, Tiffany found school difficult as she experienced segregation and isolation from students and teachers.

After completing her Bachelors in English literature from Government College for Women, Thiruvananthapuram, she started working for Braille without Borders as a telephone operator. Later she pursued her B.Ed in special education (visual impairment) after which she began running the Jyothirgamaya (meaning "leading to light") mobile school for the blind.

In 2020 Tiffany, became the first Indian to receive Holman Prize from the US-based organization LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired.

Tune in to listen to Tiffany’s journey and her dream of making the state of Kerala into an accessible space for people with disabilities.

Eyeway Conversations with Preetham Sunkavalli

In this episode of Eyeway Conversations, George Abraham speaks with Preetham Gandhi Sunkavalli, who works with a leading automobile company in Mumbai, as part of their Business Transformation team.

Preetham experienced vision loss at an early age due to Retinitis Pigmentosa. But he was fortunate to pursue a good education from mainstream institutions. His initial dream was to become a physicist but given the limited awareness and opportunities, he chose Economics and Management instead. An MBA from IIM Ahmedabad, Preetham learnt a great deal from his peers, faculty and the supportive system at the premier institute.

In a largely traditional automotive industry, clear communication and hard work has helped make a place for himself. Tune in to listen to his journey and aspirations of building inclusive brands and products for exceptional customer experience.

Eyeway Conversations with Ruchi Patil

In this episode of Eyeway Conversations, George Abraham speaks with Ruchi Patil, mother of a visually impaired boy. Arijit Patil is a Class XII student in Mumbai who experienced vision problems from an early age. A premature baby born in the sixth month of Ruchi’s pregnancy, his retina didn’t quite develop as expected. After the initial reaction of shock and panic, his parents got into problem solving mode, visiting top eye hospitals. And finally they realised the need to salvage what they had instead of focusing on what wasn’t.

Ruchi bombarded Arijit’s world with sounds and music as opposed to visuals, something sighted children his age were experiencing. She didn’t want him to feel left out on any front, and started off his journey with an early interventionist. A career woman, she made her son’s progress the sole goal of her life, giving up her job.

Listen to this podcast where Ruchi shares practical tips, some frustrations, a culture of inclusion at school and dreams that she worked with.

Winging it Blind by Simon Mahoney.

The truth about sight loss and how to survive it. Simon Mahoney uses his personal story to reveal the problems and solutions through his transition to total blindness. His book, published on 15 November http://www.wingingitblind.com, is full of practical ideas and answers for anyone who’s sight is at risk and for those who care for them.

Simon said, “There’s no shortcut to managing the overwhelming world of blindness but, with hard work and commitment, we can reinvent ourselves and find the way back to being fully paid-up valued members of society. My mantra is : ‘We are not disabled; it’s what others do or don’t do that disables us.’ Rather than spending the rest of our days in the ‘disabled’ box, we must keep climbing out and changing what is possible.”

As with his first book (A descent into Darkness), Winging it Blind is an invaluable guide for professionals in the field as well as those facing sight loss, those already blind and their supporters .

Simon explores five distinct levels of change and survival: essential knowledge; management and adaptation; engagement with the real world; practical steps towards independence; sight loss and society. The first four are packed with information and advice while the last draws on Simon’s personal perceptions and experience.

He concludes with a holistic and strategic analysis of sight loss as a looming social crisis. Simon champions sight safeguarding : identifying causes of increasing sight loss (such as pollution, diet and toxins in water) And what society and individuals can do to protect eye health.

Ends.
