Louis Braille’s birth anniversary observed in Mysuru

Prime News, International, National, Karnataka, Education, Language, Mysuru, January 4:- Mysuru Parisara Sneha team celebrated the 212th birth anniversary of Louis Braille, inventor of Braille language, at the Government School for the Blind and Deaf in Tilak Nagar here on Tuesday (January 4).

The team members paid floral tribute to Louis Braille’s statue at the school premises and distributed sweets to children.

Speaking on the occasion, school superintendent Sathish said, “Louise Braille was born on January 4, 1804 in France. When he was 12-years old, he lost his eye sight. He was clueless on how to go forward in life and eventually invented Braille language as a way to study further. Visually impaired people across the globe can now read and write the script with just 6 dots which once started with 12 dots. It is our duty to celebrate to remember and honour Louise Braille for his contribution to the deaf and blind community.”
