New York: A city of smiles

This article helps you to know more about one of the famous cities in the world - New York. This article is all about the author 's experience he got from New York city.

When you travel United States, what you expect basically is that you can get a cooler wind, better atmosphere, excellent people to support and finally peace with the world that can glow you with all means and hence you want to analyse the way people describe it when they travel the same city which is also known as City of Smiles as people are hospitable and they welcome you in high calibre with a sense of pride that they belong to this city. However it is a total different experience when you being a visually impaired travels to the city and find your own community to jingle the musical beats, have laughter with them and make a unique memorable experience to share. Yet it has some similarities with the atmosphere people have in the city, but for some people it is different, especially for us being blind but still able to negotiate the troublesome challenges and celebrate the best of time to raise in a glory some fashion which is unique in all respects.

As I had registered for Columbia University in past and had been expecting them to contact me through Gmail, It was not a surprise for me first when I got the call that I would have to come and observe the unique Frugal innovation session that will b held on 11th of December 2017 which would be chaired by Navi Raju sir. Having good friendship with sir was a great factor to boost in past and it was no doubt that I am not going there to settle in New York for university, But just visiting the place for 1 day session there which is an ultimate morale booster for me. By all means, It had been a good time together for four of us who have been travelling together for same purpose of enjoying the theme round session of 'Big Questions, Big innovations' round which is a team strategy session hosted by Columbia university and by such way I got to know the ultimate fun of the Visually impaired people who live in New York and have lot of fun together indeed.

We took the support of the agency that have been supporting us in all respects and took two guides to have fun in the local Zoological Park with noises and shouts of animals all around us. Apart from that we visited the local museum and have some historic memories as all four of us have deep interests in history and once having nice breakfast in the agency hotel lounge, We took out some boxing gloves and have punching fun for the better joy of it to see whether we are fit enough to have practical fun together or not. What I liked about New York is that it is a city of smiles and joy for all of those who visit the place and for us also being visually impaired it offered lot of promises to reveal. We also had a fun of session with a famous visually impaired singer and performer Jenson Harlington who performed local western songs and helped us enjoy with his command on guitar as well which was a great joy to boost our spirits.

By all means it is a great experience and realising our place in the New York society boosts my spirits also. The evening of 11th is Approaching and we all four have to travel past the city and make our way for the Session which is the main cause to visit this place, But I shall not forget the hospitality people provide here to the visually impaired people and their sense of awareness for the better of it which is the main focal point.

There is more joyous time we are expecting in future, but for now I can wrap up this experience thanking all the staff who have been able to support and Gratitude to my parents for trusting my visits and helping out the goodwill of impact of such visits have created by the sense of it. Be the best of you and let the time tickle by with its greatness which shall boost your virtual spirits where-ever you go so even being blind doesn't count, what you have to present count at large...
