Memories of life: How I began to use computers…

Suddenly, I got to see my old website that I created somewhere around 2000 or so! Wow, so much is changed from then and now!! Wanted to share a story, how I began to use computers. Credit to my old website…

My photo from my old websiteThe day when I saw the Computer for the first time at my uncle’s office in the year 1995, I was so inspired and internd to learn to use this vast technology. However, I am told that since I have problem with my vision, it is impossible for me to operate the computer and hence, I am not suitable to IT Industry. In the year 1999 I came to Mumbai in order to undergo the Telephone Operator’s Training at National Association for the Blind, India and subsequently, one day I was searching for the Cybercafe in order to gather some information on education in IT for blind, low vision and visually impaired people. As a matter of fact, some mistakes also show a wonderful way towards success. I was misguided and therefore, instead of cybercafe, I have reached to Shramik Vidya Peeth which is an unique institute imparting training in various fields including Computers. I have Welcomed by its Director and approved to undergo the course in their programme. I have undergone three months training in MS-Office under the auspicious guidance of Miss. Pallavi Bodhare. This is how I have entered into IT Industry

I sincerely thank Ms. Pallavi, who helped me to get introduced the world of computers and that helped me to build the career I have today. Way to go!
