Lotus News makes a change to make a change in the society.
Lotus News is all set to be in the news again. First, they had surprised all by hiring a transgender for a news anchor and today they have done it again, by giving this opportunity to a visually challenged 11-year-old boy.
Sriramanujam is only eleven years old, but held his own when he read out the news bulletin in Braille for 22 minutes. His transcript covered topics ranging from the Nepal tragedy to the Mahinda Rajapaksa trial.
According to the Chairman of the channel, the purpose of this initiative was to create awareness on eye donations in the general public. Sriramanujam is a student of the fifth standard in the Government School at Uliyampalayam on the outskirts of the city.
Lotus News Channel had earlier set a trend by becoming the first to introduce a transgender as a news reader.
The transgender reader Padmini Prakash (40) reads news at the 7 pm slot everyday.
High FIVE FOR LOTUS NEWS…treating all equally and giving them a professional platform to prove their abilities. Now this is what Khurki calls…BEING POSITIVE….
