Mitra Jyothi has been issuing the braille books for different blind schools in Karnataka since many years. It has been a great help for the students in a great manner and to come up with flying colors. Since many visually impaired students prefers to read books in their primary and higher secondary education, our braille books have an important role in nurturing their education.
