“On Louis Braille’s birth anniversary last year, AIR Ahmedabad had invited representatives of the visually-impaired community to read out the news in braille. Usually, we don’t take people as news anchors until we certify the quality of their voice. But when we heard Patil’s voice, we were happy. Our only concern was that he won’t be able to read or write the news rapidly, as we have to update the list in the morning….He read the news from 7.15 am to 7.20 am, before handing over again to Kshirsagar, who then concluded the bulletin.”
