How do blind people see nature?

Posted April 13, 2019 from India


This question is often asked to me by my friends. They think I cannot see nature at all. They are wrong. I can feel the beauty of the flowers even though they are so silent they give us a sense of tranquility, and happiness while looking at them.  The rain drops, their sound and the coolness they provide, the breeze and  the trees and their silent presence. The trees protect us, but we don’t realize this we cut them for our own pleasure, but god made all this and it should be preserved.

 I love walking in the wind, and my anger cools down when I feel cool breeze on my face, rain drops  sea waves and  the sound of birds. These are little little things which make one happy, and I as a blind person can also feel these things even though I cannot see them. One doesn’t need ye eyes to see one only needs a should and an inner vision, that in itself is your eyes a person who can see from the  outside but not from the inside is  blind, not me I am not blind.
