‘Raju Sir’ as he is fondly called by all his students working as masseurs in various parts of Mumbai and outside Mumbai, is one of the most respected names in Mumbai for training blind students to become masseurs.
Totally blind himself, Raju Sir is completely dedicated to helping blind students not just learn different techniques of all kinds of massage but also help students find jobs as full time or part time massage therapists.
The Victoria Memorial School’s Massage training centre is where Raju sir conducts the sessions. This vocational training program has been very successful. At the massage training centre visually handicapped male and female adults are trained to give scientific and therapeutic massages so that they can be gainfully employed. Raju sir’s students have found work in hotels like the Taj group, airport spas, Birla Aruyvedic Kendras and many more.
