Welcome to Blind Persons' Association
Let Us See the Light of Knowledge
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 Braille press at Lal Bihari shah Braille Academia produces Braille books in Bengali and English and provides them at INR 10 per Braille volume to sightless students. Institutions and organisations may collect these books at paper cost. We supply these books throughout India using the free postal service. All Braille readers will find something to his taste in our catalogue.Read More
Braille is a code of reading and writing for visually challenged people. It uses six raised dots on paper, arranged in two vertical columns of three dots each. The character depends on the number and position of the dots. Although it is difficult to master the skill by touch, learning by sight is easy. Do you want to know how to read and write Braille?Read More
