Gita Mohanty | President
Gita Mohanty, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor of Biology in USA, from Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IITB), India, and post-doctorate from McGill University, Montreal, Canada, in Environmental Science and Engineering.
She initiated this project with the inspiration she drew from her noble parents, who were involved consistently in the service of visually impaired schools, which were run with the help of locals. Continuous interactions and several visits to those schools made her realise the urgent needs of support for the visually impaired and economically challenged students. She is determined to bring a sustainable change in their lives by supporting their college and university educations and enabling them for self-sustenance and also facilitating them to live a dignified life, which is the fundamental right of every human being. She took this objective as her moral and social responsibility.
Light Beyond Vision (LBV) is her brainchild and very close to her heart and soul. Compassion is her passion. She is also passionate about writing poetry, creative interaction, photography of nature, painting and reading philosophy. She blends science, literature, philosophy and divinity, well in her life and social responsibilities in a much harmonious manner. She has taken social services and philanthropic activities as the true religion of her life.
“Selfless service is like worship for me. I strongly believe in the fact that, unconditional service to mankind is true service to God and I’m committed to it”:- Dr. Gita Mohanty, President, Light Beyond Vision (LBV)
