Visually impaired writer to launch a new accessible book for the blind
October 17, 2017
Visually impaired Dr Ramesh Kumar Sareen, a lecturer and writer by profession and a former employee at Indian Airlines, is set to launch his new book titled Sam Samayik Bharat ki Vikas Prakriya aur Samajik Andolan, which means "development process and social movements in contemporary India".
The book presents an understanding of political developments that took place between 1930 and 2014 in India.
The book will be launched under the banner of 'Raktim Publications', a publishing house started by Sareen for visually impaired people.
The aim of the publishing house is to publish blind-friendly books and make such books accessible for readers in the Mangal font of Hindi language.
Through the initiative, Sareen hopes to make it easier for visually impaired people to read whatever they want to read.
Sareen is a Guinness record holder and has written the maximum words in Braille in a required period of time by typing Hindi stories for 158 hours.
