Blind Rocks founder Shristi KC is with me for an exclusive facebookLive interview. In 40th episode of facebook live with Ganesh, we will be talking about her inspirational life journey. As the red carpet premiere of the biopic movie based on Shristi KC “Blind Rocks” is all set go on this Saturday at Princess Hall, Aldershot. We will be discussing about the film and her journey in the UK.
About Shristi KC:
Sristi KC, 26 years, was born in Kathmandu as a younger sister to two brothers. She lost her vision while she was studying in grade 8. Since then, her life took a different turn; her understanding of vision became retrospective. She thought it was temporary. Her family also had a hope that she will see one day because only seeing again was the best solution.
“We went to so many hospitals. But, nothing happened. Slowly I began to adjust myself. Yet I hold on and believed that I only missed my sight — I had my functional hands, leg and a curious mind intact with my body to carry on.”
She was a teenager aspired to get college degree. It was her dream to go to college in neat college attire, however no college would take her in, given to their lack of infrastructures to address her requirements. But thankfully, she got admission to Dillibazar Kanya Multiple Campus , thanks to one of the ministers at that time. Though, she could not study the subject of her choice but she realized that at least she got this opportunity that should not be missed.
KC used to study by hearing. Then, she used recorder to record classes in college. She created the material of wood on her own to study. And it worked. She topped the college and country exam’s too for which she got rewarded with medal from The President of Nepal. She also started competing in various programs like dance, essay, poem, etc. She completed her Bachelor in Sociology from the same college.
Sristi had a big interest in dancing. In her free time, she thought of learning dance. But, again, none of the dancing institution was ready to teach her. “They didn’t believe me that I could dance.”
It was again a pinching moment for her. Then, she made up her mind that if they won’t teach her how to dance she’ll learn it by herself and will teach other blind people to dance. After that, she organized Dance workshop for blind for the first time.
She got an opportunity to study a seven month course related to social entrepreneurship at Kanthari International, Kerala, India. Till some time, she worked in the same college in different projects. With more confidence and ideas she came back and founded an organization, ‘Blind Rocks’.
