Hello friends,

 

                  I am Amith Jain graduated in B.Com (Graduation in Commerce) at Indira Gandhi National open University (IGNOU) Bangalore. I had more than 90% vision during my child hood but it started slowly deteriorating due to Retinitis Pigmentosa as years went by.

 

                Till my 7th Standard, I was in a regular school managing pretty well. It was then that I started finding it difficult to manage my studies on my own. The next seven years were wasted due to reasons beyond my control. Those seven years were fruitful in another way. Instead of wasting my time I decided to take up intensive training in music.

 

Since I hailed from Bellary, which is small town when, compared to Bangalore I or my educational institution had no idea on how to handle my situation. Neither they nor I knew any thing about using a reader, scribe or technology to complete my High school. This is when chance brought me to Bangalore and I got in touch with Samarthanam and many other NGOs. I went there with the intention of learning to use Computers as a tool and as my contact with the outside world. That is when some of the volunteers convinced me that this same tool could be used to complete and continue my education.

               

                In the beginning though I had no idea on how to go about it, I decided to take the plunge. It was an enlightening period giving me a lot of confidence on my ability to handle the future with the help of volunteers and technology. Here I am now having completed my 10th (Private candidate) and I have scored 75%, Bachelor of preparatory Program (BPP) from IGNOU. Since I studied in Hindi medium school I had problem with English so I decided to take up my further education in English medium. And I have done 12th by correspondence first time in English medium and I have scored 72%. My aim is to do MBA and serve the society. Apart from studies, I am very much interested in learning new things in computer and musical instruments. I play Keyboard.

 

                I have got the opportunity to perform in USA twice (in 2004 and 2005) and in UK during Nov 2007. My Brother Vishal Jain ( http://vishal.hello.googlepages.com ) is also a visually challenged has also traveled to USA once with me as he plays Rhythm pads, Drums, Tabla, Dholak and Congo.

That is it about me, I am sure that I’ll get to make many friends and learn lot of things from you.

Success is not measured by our position in life

but by the obstacles we overcame to get there. 

Success in life is not determined by how we are doing compared with others,

but by how we are doing compared with what we are capable of doing.
