In 1949, 15-year-old Ved went to America to attend the Arkansas School for the Blind. In the three years there he fell afoul of two members of staff: the PE teacher who believed only the combative could survive in a… sighted world and an Evangelical Baptist musician who told him he was damned because he was a Hindu. Girls too were a problem... but he learnt to get around Little Rock himself by perceiving objects and terrain by means of "sound-shadows". Sequel to "The ledge between the streams" (DC28718). 1986. (Continents of exile ; 5).
