More able than all of us . It’s all about passion and determination

He is Srikanth Bolla, a 24 year old blind entrepreneur from Hyderabad. When he was born, his parents, who were earning Rs 20,000 in a year, were advised to get rid of him, but somehow he survived.

Despite getting 90% in class 10th, he was not allowed to chose Science stream for 12th; he sued the State Govt., fought for 6 months, and won the case. He scored 98% with Science in 12th.

When IIT’s and NIT’s didn’t give him hall ticket for writing competitive exams, he applied overseas, and got selected in 4 of the best colleges ever created on Earth: MIT, Stanford, Berkeley, and Carnegie Mellon. He chose Massachusetts Institute of Technology, received a scholarship, and was MIT’s first International blind student.

After returning from US in 2012, he launched#BollantIndustries, where 60% of employees are poor, physically challenged. This 450 employees company is now worth Rs 50 crore, and recently, Ratan Tata invested in his venture.

As per him, “I was made blind by the perception of people..” When the world said to him that you can’t do anything, Bolla said, “But I look up at the world and say I can do anything.”
