Bhopal, Feb 15 (ANI): The Annual Blind Chase Bhopal Heritage Car Rally was organised here on Sunday.

More that 40 visually impaired were a part of the car rally, which covered a distance of 25 kilometres.

Every car had one visually impaired person sitting next to the driver as navigator, guiding him through the way. The visually impaired persons were given a road map in Braille language using which they had to navigate the driver.

The participants, among whom were a number of women, were pleased to be a part of the rally.

"Disability never becomes an obstacle, a person should have confidence and if he does his work with full faith, he definitely meets his expectations. We have a booklet with us, which has all the instructions in Braille language. We'll read them with the help of our fingers, we'll guide the driver and accordingly he will drive the vehicle," said Nandram, a participant.

Even the drivers found this rally to be very unique.

"This shows that they are no way less than others, they are one amongst us and they are able to help us in all ways. It's a great experience, as we are getting to learn something new, as we are completely dependent on them, wherever they will guide us we have to go, we don't know the way," said Archana Saxena, a driver.

The Non-government organization Arushi and other institutions had organised this rally, which is in its fourth year. (ANI)
