The readers must be aware of the fact that Late Sh. Madanlal Khandelwal had always thought and contributed for the betterment of the blind brothers and sisters of India despite living abroad for years. His thoughts and ideas were creative. He was not a preacher, but he certainly wanted to prove his worth. It is true that he always lived a saintly life. Therefore, the Confederation has been organizing Braille Essay competition to commemorate his contributions for last several years.
This competition was organized in different languages in the past. But it has been noticed that we are not receiving sufficient number of entries from the schools/participants. As a result, justice is not done to such a great personality.
