A thought that might be considered an inimitable and new provoked us to step into new direction which could mark the beginning of new era for visually impaired community. As we all know, New Year mark the beginning of new thing, indicator of auspicious day and start of various new period. For
analytical and historical reasons if we trace back the definition of New Year, Gregorian calendar propounds first January at the global level;
yugadi at regional level as the start of New Year. Braille was the invention which laid a foundation to construct new avenue to drive visually impaired community from the dark of helpless to the light of hopes. Brail proved to be a bass for all other Consequent developments to promote the welfare of
our community. Hence, R.S.G.E decided to celebrate international Braille day as the new year of visually impaired community. Various programs were held in our WhatsApp group from fourth January 2018 (birth day of Louie Braille) to 6 January 2018 (a day when Louis Braille renounced the world). Admin team
would like to thank for those of you gave us an overwhelming response for our effort. For the upcoming New Year, we wish to include our visually impaired friends staying at different parts of our country, who are not our group members. In order to fulfil the above stated aspiration we decided to host national level Braille Essay competition.
