Dr. Sam Taraporevala captivates his audience by breaking several myths associated with the visually challenged. He talks about how we all have our blind spots, physical or otherwise, motivating us to help ourselves.

Dr. Sam Taraporevala is an Associate Professor and the Head of Department of Sociology and Anthropology at St. Xavier's College (Autonomous), Mumbai. He is also the Director of The Xavier’s Resource Centre for the Visually Challenged (XRCVC) which was his brainchild. He is a catalytic force in bettering the lives of the visually challenged, including bringing amendments to the Copyright Act of India, and in making banking systems more inclusive and accessible for the blind.
