Founding Story: We want to hear about your "Aha!" moment. Share the story of where and when the founder(s) saw this solution's potential to change the world.

While traveling on a day to day basis in Mysore , I come across many disabled people struggling to travel . I would like to quote an incident at this juncture . In 2009 while crossing the road a blind person met with an accident when a truck ran over him . I witnessed this incident and it has etched in my memory . I dont think I ever be able to forget that incident . That was when I decided that I have to do something to bring about a change and make sure that such incidents dont happen again .
