Gautom Baruah

Gautom Baruah of Guwahati, Assam, is an enterprising young man despite his blindness. Gautom runs his own shop selling cellphone connections, recharge coupons, and other basic telecom gadgets. He had always wanted to do easy recharging independently for his clients, not relying on other people for an otherwise easy task. Gautom heard about the talking software for cell phones which he needed on the Eyeway Radio Show. Today Gautom tops up his clients’ cellphones independently, causing amazement at how a blind person can be a regular entrepreneur and contribute to the normal workings of society.
