Uradi Vishnu



Uradi Vishnu’s father passed away a few years back and since then, his mother who is a daily laborer tilling land, is the sole breadwinner of the family. The fact that he is visually impaired does not also help his dreams of attaining higher education. But this young boy from Kadicherla village in Andhra Pradesh seems undaunted by the challenges life throws at him time and again!

Despite his visual impairment, Vishnu has always excelled in studies in school. Vishnu was initially apprehensive about his higher studies due to the poverty that his family has to struggle with, on a daily basis. And then, he met a bunch of IDIA volunteers at the Sai Junior College for the Blind in Hyderabad. When Vishnu performed well in the aptitude test conducted in his school and was assured of the free training he would receive for CLAT, he started working towards his goal of becoming a lawyer.

Not only is Vishnu good at academics, but he also loves playing chess and it is one passion he takes really seriously – he has won gold medals in state level chess tournaments.

His teachers at Sai Junior College fondly remember him and say that “If there is someone who deserves the ‘ideal student’ tag from the batch, it would be Vishnu.”

IDIA trainers in Hyderabad got a glimpse of Vishnu’s dedication and seriousness when even during his school hours, whenever Vishnu had some free time, he would go to the school library and send emails requesting for additional mock tests for him to practice for CLAT! This is a testament to his willingness to learn. Vishnu is a role model for his juniors in school and helps other visually impaired students to learn well and dream big!

Through all the hardships life has handed out to him, he has battled on and got admission at the prestigious National Law University, Jodhpur, presently in his 2nd year, Vishnu is on his way to becoming a corporate lawyer. He has also scored the highest marks in his class for Legal History securing 10/10!
