Despite vision loss, he has taught history to hundreds in this remote Bhopal town
January 13, 2018
For many years now, 37-year-old Manoj Parmar, who is a history teacher in the town of Chirapatla in remote Bhopal, has been teaching hundreds of students, many of whom are in the Madhya Pradesh civil services.
His lack of sight has not been a barrier to his teaching. His students sit in complete attention as he speaks in a soft and clear voice.
His teaching style may be different but as far as his students are concerned, he is the best man for the job. He guides students in various activities as he possesses immense knowledge. Parmar is also active on social media and is known as master of computers among his colleagues and students.
Parmar lost his vision when he was 19. By then, he had lost his father as well. Beating all odds, he passed the Class 12 exams without a writer. His invigilators would read out the question paper to him and he would answer with totally blurred vision.
He even cracked the IAS prelims and wanted to take coaching for the mains but was denied admission. He decided to take up teaching and even became a national-level chess player. He has won many national and state-level competitions.
