Sight is the ability to see the physical world while vision is the gift of seeing beyond it. Vision comes from within and shows us how to navigate the arena of thought, feeling, and emotion. It enables us to see things that aren’t yet manifested in the world of form, and it also connects us to that part of ourselves that exists separately from the world of form.
A victim of a bomb blast who completely lost her sight a decade ago due to a terrorist attack, Ashcharya continues to pursue her dream by creating the most amazing of designs.
She creates elaborate dresses by describing her detailed designs to the tailors. Her heightened sense of touch allows her to feel her creations and differentiate between materials to ensure that the outcome matches her concept.
Now having adjusted to life without sight, Ashcharya says she “can imagine by touch” and use sensory memories to create each ornate piece of her collection.
“I do what an ordinary designer does with a pencil, a paper and graphic designing software, but with my mind and heart, trusting in God to show me what I cannot see” says Ashcharya. “I don’t let little things get me down as I look up to God who chooses the weak to put to shame those who are strong. I have many reasons to thank God every day for this amazing gift .
Ashcharya wants to use her special vision to pursue her dream and to inspire others too ‘It’s about showing people what they can do with what they have, rather than thinking they are alone or thinking about what they’ve lost.’
“Christiana Glory” is the unique design range of Ashcharya.
