Seenath singing song and playing harmonium
Kalpetta (Wayanad): Though Seenath was curious to see various sights in childhood, she gradually realised she was losing the ability to see. She lost eyesight of left eye by the time she was mere two months old. The sight of right eye also was lost within a few months. Though she underwent many treatments, nothing improved her vision.
Daughter of Pariyaram native Kunjahammed and Fathima, Seenath gradually got acquainted with her life without sight. She was always fond of music and used to sing along with radio songs. After her younger brother was admitted in school, she dreamt of studying.
Later, she was admitted to Kolathara Special School. It was during the studies in this school, Seenath’s teachers and friends identified her love for music. She participated in a music competition for differently abled candidates when she was studying in class 1. Since then, she never stopped following her passion.
After completing class 10, Seenath completed Ganabhooshanam degree from Chembai Music College in Palakkad. In 2007, she joined as music teacher in Kolathara school which is her alma mater. She also started singing for concerts and albums.
She proved with her life that any disability can be overcome through hard work and passion.
