Stares of the Blind

Neglected Facet of Human Bonding

The ways in which blind people connect to the art of seeing without the ocular equipment of the eyes are explored, recognising that seeing is as much a political act as it pertains to human bonding.

“You guys must have a ‘sixth sense.’ That is the reason why you all are spot on in your movements!” Such comments have something to do with my blindness, I guess. I grew up rejecting such verbosity, rightfully frightened by unsolicited attention. Thanks now to my training in humanities scholar­ship, I have become aware that such comments come with a penchant for patronisation as well. Not only that, they can reduce blind people into unearthly, divine, and somewhat a

mysterious lot.
