Commitment, determination, and focus towards a goal can overcome the barrier of physical disability. Devshree Bhoir, who is visually impaired by birth, has proved this by receiving a Ph.D. from Pt. Ravishankar Shukla University (PRSU) in Raipur.
Despite being visually impaired, Devshree has completed her PhD on the topic ‘Contribution of Atal Bihari Vajpayee in Indian Politics’ and has become a source of inspiration for others. Devshree received her Ph.D. during the 26th convocation ceremony of PRSU on Wednesday. “I can’t say the journey was difficult because my parents ignored all the problems that came to the fore. They said that there was no difficulty. Like my parents’ desire, I also wanted to do a Ph.D. They ignored all the problems (if any) and never let me feel about them.” Devshree said.
Devshree, whose parents worked as labourers, said that she had completed her Ph.D. under Dr. Subhash Chandra Akarshan of Durga College from PRSU on the topic ‘Contribution of Atal Bihari Vajpayee in Indian Politics’.
Devshree, who is visually impaired by birth, said that she had studied till 5th grade at Prerna Hostel and completed further studies at Maharishi Dayanand School while graduating from Degree Girls College.
“Our books are available until standard 8th grade, and after that, there is no book.
