Bertha G Dkhar was born with failing eyesight. She lost her vision completely while in college. But in her loss Bertha found the purpose of her life.
Today for more than 100 blind students, her free school is their only hope. In spite of being new to Braille herself, Bertha invented the Braille code in Khasi, the local language of Meghalaya. Thanks to Bertha these students can read and write in their mother tongue.
