Dear Listers:

Greetings from the Eyeway Helpdesk!

Follow below the Daily Eyeway Alerts:

1. News-

India's ace-blind cricketer Bhalaji Damor's apathetic condition is just a
reflection of how insensitive the Gujarat bureaucracy is towards the
visually impaired. Gujarat today is the only state which restricts
completely visually impaired from government jobs via its own February 2013
government notification of the education department.  Rajesh Mulwani, for
instance, who is totally blind, is today the principal of District
Institute of Education and Training (DIET) in Amreli district. Not because
the government selected him under reservation, but he had to fight against
the government in the Gujarat high court, which ruled in his favour in
January 2013, and ensured that Mulwani was "deemed fit" for the principal's
post.  More at
