Our Visit to VIT


Santosh and Myself went to VIT (Vellore Institute of Technology) to give a talk. We are very much grateful to Mr Balachandran, Head of Technology Business Incubator Dept. and his colleague Ms. Sudha Rajagopalan for giving us this great opportunity. VIT is having a very good campus with around 18000 students. They are offering so many courses related to Technology for the students. In the first session we interacted with the Engineering Students of VIT. I explained to them in detail how technology is supporting me in leading independent life and also I told them about the challenges I faced in my life in the absence of this support in my childhood. Santosh explained them thru technology what type of support can be extended to the differently abled community by showing his previous projects. Students showed very good interest. Next session was with the participants from West African Countries. Due to the unrest in those countries disability levels are more. They were much impressed with this initiative. They are able to connect to us immediately and promised to implement these initiatives in their respective countries. Mr Balachandran promised to extend their support to the new ideas related to this area. It’s a memorable experience for both of us.
