Session on Personal Life
The objective of this session was to break the common belief that a visually impaired couple cannot live a successful married life. For this session, a married VI couple, Mr. Joquim Rapose & Mrs. Padma Rapose, who have been happily married for the past 20 odd years or so, were invited to share their experiences with the parents & other married students. They discussed about how they met, the way they managed the day to day activities, and the challenges faced by them in bringing up a family. They not only shared their problems but also discussed the solutions that they together found to those problems. They also discussed the different ways in which they managed to overcome the hurdles of raising their children all by themselves. They helped encourage the parents & spouses of our students and showed them how even visually impaired persons can lead a very normal married life.
