For Kishore Babu, sky is the limit
From losing his vision at age 6 due to a health issue, being compelled to quit school, to being the only one from Telangana state to be selected by RBI, Kishore Babu, 24, has indeed come a long way. He is now an Assistant with the Reserve Bank of India, Hyderabad, is a positive and engaging young man enthusiastically preparing for internal promotional tests, and is part of a music band that was privileged to have performed in front of the late Dr APJ Abdul Kalam.
A year after he had to quit school, someone recommended LVPEI's rehabilitation centre where Kishore recalls learning “a lot - from soft skills to technical training - from the dedicated, professional and caring staff”. He even went on to finish his schooling and graduation in B.Com. “We don't need sympathy; we need equal opportunity. At my workplace, I am not treated differently; I am expected to perform on par with my colleagues. Parents of children with vision impairment should not shy from seeking services from centres like LVPEI. Once they visit, they will realize that the sky is the limit for their child,” says Kishore.
