Mahesh Narasimhan was diagnosed with macular degeneration at the age of seven. Macular degeneration is the deterioration of the macula, which is the small central area of the retina of the eye that controls visual acuity. The macula is responsible for focusing central vision in the eye and it controls our ability to read, drive, recognize faces or colors and perform any other visual task that requires us to see fine detail.
Mahesh’s sister also suffers from the same disorder. But their parents never let them give up. They taught them to put up a brave fight to survive and thrive in life. Both Mahesh and his family believe that the problem is not the disability itself but how the mind perceives it. They feel that every human being is ‘crippled’ in one way or the other. This might not be a visible disability but just a mindset that ‘cripples’. So one has to overcome this mindset of disability and embrace life wholeheartedly to step forward.
