An Amazing Story of Determination, Hope and Courage
Preeti Monga: Author of 'The Other Senses'
An inspiring story of Success of a visually impaired Women
'Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.’– Hellen Keller
Preeti was barely six years old when doctors diagnosed her deteriorating vision as a condition due to optic atrophy. Those were difficult days but with the support and encouragement of her parents she learnt to get the best out of her disability. She looked for possibilities, focused on every positive she could dream of, always playing her best shot at facing challenges and failures with dignity and without shame.
Sprinkled liberally with failures and obstacles, her story is a journey through a fairly difficult life with lots of courage and never-say-die attitude. In her memoirs she shares all the fun she had living life queen size and on her own terms. For she firmly believes, ‘When life gets cloudy, the trick is to look at the silver lining.’
About Preeti Monga :

Winner of various awards, Preeti was the first Indian visually impaired person to successfully clear the Aerobic Instructor training.

Dear Shri Atul Sharma,
Your posting is very impressive.
Hats off to the lady who has achieved so much in the wake
of adversity striking her so early in her life.
Preeti Monga would be certainly providing "vision" to many
others through her multifarious activities
albeit her own set back.
What a remarkable level of motivation !
