Overcoming the impediments of  blindness, an 11-year-old visually impaired boy surprised everybody yesterday when he read out a bulletin on Lotus News, a Tamil channel.

Clad in an orange shirt and a fawn waist-coat, Sriramanujam read out the special news at 5 P.M. for 22 minutes with the help of Braille, while his teary-eyed parents watched him in awe.

The news he read was a follow up on Nepal earthquake and the Mahinda Rajapaksa trial.

Channel Chairman, G K S Selvakumar told a news agency that the main reason to give a chance to a visually challenged boy was to promote and create awareness about eye donation among the masses, “So that such talented people get their vision back and achieve their goals.”

Sriramanujam, who is currently studying in fifth standard of Government School at Uliyampalayam, went through these news items six times before going live.

At present, he has been assigned a task of reading the special newsweekly. Selvakumar also said that Sriramanujam would become a permanent daily news reader after some time.

Sriramanujam stated that he wanted to achieve something in life. He chose the medium of TV so that many people could see him. His ambition is to be a Collector.

“I was scared in the first two minutes but then it was business and I read it fluently,” he said.
