‘Making an Impact ‘ is an all India city supplement lead for Times, online today. How movies like Black  evoke sensitivity towards not only disables, but even it makes us sensitive towards our own senses. It was a strange experience writing papers for Maulik and Satish, my blind classmates who still call me before every exam to wish me luck. Maulik is a teacher now and Satish is doing his M Phil.

It is really remarkable how they pick up li’l details faster than people with normal eyesight can. Satish used to get notes recorded in my voice converted in Braille. NCERT is going to add Braille in normal course books now. Movies like Iqbal and Black have actually made an impact.
