What is the aim behind DID?
There are two major aims behind DID. One was to make the society sensitize towards the issue of visually impaired. By keeping the whole atmosphere of the place dark and only through the means of other senses a perfect person is able to move around the place the initiative is asking the people to look that how difficult is life for those who are not able to see yet they live it joyfully. It tries to ask the society to be little considerate towards the Blind.
Secondly the major aim was to provide independence to the visually impaired who can earn their livelihoods through it. Through guiding people in dark these visually impaired guides are gaining a sense of confidence and are able to arouse their self-esteem. They too have a place and platform where these people are able to showcase their talent and can show the world that they are the powerful warriors.
Wow, is the only word that comes out when seeing the concept that how a platform is being made to serve the blind. People should take it as an inspiration and should start serving the visually impaired.
