Vasudev Sharma
Vasudev is a visually challenged boy who hails from a poor family in Darjeeling, West Bengal. He was born visually challenged. His family managed to provide him with education until his 6th standard. After that he had to leave Darjeeling due to financial and familial problems. Later he was living in an orphanage where they could not take care of him any longer. He then decided to go to Maharashtra with some of his friends, in Mumbai where he started working in a hotel, cleaning vessels. He also had to stitch shoes to earn money to sustain in the big city.
Vasudev reached a stage where due to his disability, his jobs were snatched away and he started begging on the streets of Mumbai. In 2008, a friend of his who saw him begging, brought him to Bangalore where he was given admission in a visually challenged school, where he completed SSLC. He was told to leave as he was not able to pay the fees. He started working again in a factory, and paid his college fees with that money. In 2012, Vasudev was brought to Snehadeep Trust by a friend. After joining Snehadeep, Vasudev was admitted into college, where he has shown that he is a brilliant student, always eager to learn new things. He finished his 2nd PUC here, and also pursuing his passion of playing the keyboard.
Vasudev is now studying his First year Arts Degree, and also is a good keyboard player.
