Odisha: Inspiring tale of 2 visually impaired women from Ganjam: Watch

Two visually impaired women from Ganjam district of Odisha have become inspiration for others lately. Their case is a unique instance of friendship. They don’t have any other family members, but both of them have turned a family. Once upon a time they were stranger to each other, now living in a common house as family members.

Later, she also completed higher secondary and then Secondary Training. She also tried to get a job but in vain.

After some years, both this women met at an institute. Soon they became friend. And within some days, they decided not to depend either on their relatives or become a liability to any one else, rather they would live together.
