The Blind Man Car Rally in Mumbai city on Sunday gave an opportunity to visually impaired people to experience car driving and showcase their abilities.
At the rally, the sighted drivers were navigated by visually impaired individuals, with their route mapped in Braille. Around 103 visually impaired navigators were selected to drive across pre-selected city circuit.
The rally, which was organised by Bombay Round Table 2, aims at making society aware of the challenges faced by visually impaired people.
Meanwhile, the sighted drivers said they enjoyed helping the people in need and more such events can boost the confidence of people with disabilities. The car rally, which is an annual event, is a time distance rally and not a race. The registration amount is used for the welfare of the visually handicapped and the education of underprivileged children.
