Technology enables blind classical musician, Mohana Krishna, to have a successful career
Renowned music exponent DV Mohana Krishna has never let lack of vision act as a barrier in pursuing a successful career in music.
Born and brought up in Andhra Pradesh, Mohana Krishna became interested in music as a child and started to pursue it from an early age. He started off by learning film songs. After seeing his interest in music, his mother bought him a tape recorder, so he could hear songs.
The first cassette that he heard was of that of the legendary Carnatic musician, Dr Balamurali Krishna. Mohana Krishna's father took him to Chennai to meet the musician. Dr Krishna heard his voice and accepted him as a student.
Mohana Krishna started losing his vision when he was in class 4. He had pigment formation on the retina, and he gradually lost his vision. By the time he finished his graduation, he was totally blind.
Mohana Krishna never learned Braille and depends on his memory completely. He has over 300 students in India and abroad. He teaches music both online and at home.
Mohana Krishna says thanks to technology, lack of vision has never been a barrier.
