Neither Saba, nor anyone in her family knew about the facilities and the opportunities Saba Rizviavailable for the blind to study, so she never went to school and had always thought that blind people like her can only be home-bound all throughout their lives. Then after 34 years, she almost instantly got addicted to the then new radio show for the blind, Eyeway – Yeh Hai Roshni Ka Karawan (Caravan of Light).

Avdhesh Kumar Kaushal has 6/36 vision. He appreciates Eyeway for guiding him as he continues to adjust to his eye condition, with the myriad of information and advice he got from Eyeway. When he started to lose his eyesight, he feared that he would also lose his teaching job in a central government school. Eyeway gave Avdhesh confidence after the Helpdesk informed him of the job security to blind people as stated in the People with Disabilities (PWD) Act, and specific concessions and other policies.
