Let Us See the Light of Knowledge

"Let us see the light of knowledge" is our motto. Knowledge alone can compensate for the loss of sight. Blind Persons' Association has tried to spread this message among the sightless people. Without knowledge a sightless person cannot contribute to the progress of the society and attain true social recognition.


When Professor late Nagendranath Sengupta started this organisation with a few sightless youths in 1946, their goal was setting up a common platform for exchanging their views. The members of the organisation realised in the sixties that the main problem of the sightless people lies in the lack of identity in the society. Their quest for identity can never be fulfilled unless the sightless share social responsibility with their fellow-brothers. They urged upon the members to plunge themselves into social activities. At the same time, the organisation took upon itself the task of promoting education among the sightless solely relying on patronage of the common people. The organisation has so far established three blind schools, a spice production unit and a Braille press and library facility in different districts of West Bengal.
