You might remember the video of an inspirational speech by Shristi KC that surfaced on the internet and was the most viral material for quite a long time last year. The 18-minute video had the 23-year old Bhaktapur girl sharing her life story in the event titled ‘Ma Movement’. She had told how at age 16, she lost her eye sight because of the doctor’s negligence and the wrong prescription. But did that stop her from living her life to the fullest and make a mark in the world? Absolutely not. In fact she became even more determined to do something big in her life and went on to be the Tribhuvan University board topper in intermediate level; and was awarded by the president. That was not it, she then topped her college in Bachelors and was the TU topper again in Nepali literature. After achieving quite a lot for herself, she decided to do something for the society and that was when she founded her organization named ‘Blind Rocks’. She started organizing various activities and workshops for the visually impaired people. Not only in Nepal but she went international with various workshops around India, Russia and Hong Kong as well. Today, at a very young age, she is an inspiration for thousands of people.
Shristi’s inspirational life-story is now confirmed to hit the silver screen as a film based on her life was announced in a press meet held in Kathmandu on Monday. Benisha Hamal will play the character of Shristi in the biopic titled ‘Blind Rocks’ that will also star Arpan Thapa, Najir Husen, Gauri Malla, Prajwal Suraj Giri, Shishir Rana and Deepak Gurung. The film produced by Nikesh Limbu will be directed by ‘Hasiya’ and ‘Bir Bikram’ fame Milan Chams and is scheduled to go on floor in November this year.
