Dia Mirza unveils ‘B for Braille’- A music short film
Mumbai: White Print, India’s first English Lifestyle Magazine in Braille released ‘B for Braille’ a music short film to promote Braille literacy in India. Unveiled by Bollywood actor-producer, Dia Mirza, The film is a story of a ten year old visually impaired boy who is intrigued by a book that he accidentally finds leading to a profound connection that he develops with his father’s storytelling. His earnest connection with books and the stories in them drives his parents in pursuit of a way to teach their child how to read. The innocent joy and happiness on their son’s face when his little fingers touch the raised dots, makes them realize the value it would add to his future life.
A patron of noble causes and elated to be a part of this screening, Dia Mirza said: “B for Braille is a benevolent initiative by White Print. We tend to ignore the issues that don’t concern us directly but it is important that we introspect and take the more humane step. Reading is something the sighted take for granted while it opens a whole new world for the visually impaired community. It’s time we strongly address the lack of awareness that exists, not only promote the beautiful art of reading but help elevate literacy levels. I am extremely proud to be associated with the cause and spread the message of Braille literacy to every part of India”.
