The students of Vocational Rehabilitation Training Centre for Blind remembered their ‘old mate’ through prayers on Thursday.

Sheteshpal Sharma, who passed away almost three years back when he was 25, was remembered by the school and his family by distributing scholarships to the poor students.

Sharma who died in an accident used to spend time with the students of this school regularly before leaving for England for higher studies. After his death, his father Gaganpal Sharma formed a trust in memory of his son which provides education to around 130 poor students.

Sara Johnson, director of the school, told Newsline, “Sheteshpal used to visit our school regularly and bring chocolates and cakes for our students. Now his father’s trust is helping in education of six blind students of our school and also providing medical facilities for poor children.”
