Late DR. P. K. PAUL

Dr P K Paul was a Self-made man, focused, hardworking, goal and result oriented, who dedicated his life to the service of humanity and any good cause. He has been a ray of hope to many blind people, a strong support system to stand for them, not only by providing them basic necessities like food, shelter and clothing, but also to make them strong enough to stand on their own feet by imparting professional skills to build a career by themselves.

Dr P K Paul has always been our inspiration and will remain to be, deep rooted in our hearts forever. His shining light will always guide us through our life-time to continue this enormous cause that he has built and we will walk in his guidance to take this foundation further from here. He always believed in Helen Keller’s quote which says “Alone we can do so little, together we do so much.” And we also believe in the same Philosophy. Individuals and Institutions pursue diverse routes to help blind people, but often operate in isolation. A symbiotic relationship among these organizations would propel synergy unleashing tremendous energy. A cohesive network of all these like-minded together is the key to success. Collectively we can make a difference and make world a better place to live in.
