Forty-year-old Dhananjay Kaviskar makes his way through shoppers at a store in Colaba. Born with weak vision, Dhananjay lost his eyesight completely at the age of six, and his father soon after. He helped his mother make ends meet by taking up odd jobs as a phone booth attendant or a store assistant, till one day, with some help from a blind school in Worli, he was given his own public phone booth to run near his home in Santacruz. A few years later, he got married and is now father to a son.0
