Ucal Blind rally !!!















Rally flagged off by Writer Kanimozhi

We attended the blind rally again this year. For people who are not aware.The UCAL annual car rally, where drivers are given authorised blind navigators who read maps in Braille, while we follow their instructions.
The visually impaired navigators are certified by the National Association for the Blind. The 50.03 km rally is based on the time, speed and distance format and is supposed to take 124 minutes.

Last year we had participated in the same rally and as i jumped one of the check points (avasaram, avasaram) we lost. This year we made a resolution not to miss any check points. As usual my daughter wrote what Mr. Muthu(our blind navigator) dictated and handed it over to my wife in the front seat. My wife read out the instructions and excited she was , started giving her own directions/asumptions too. As usual (illati life'il kala kalapu irukathu) we went into an argument. stopped the car. the blind man was having fun (like listening to a serial from last year). we then sorted our differences and continued.

We achieved our goal of getting through all the check points, though we did not finish at the top. But then we had lots of fun and so did Mr.Muthu
