centuries old tradition in China and related asian cultures: in olden days, the profession of therapeutic masseur strictly reserved for blind people. they walk ( yes, THEY WALK) their neighbourhood beat, sounding a rattle . people make time to invite them in. nowaday, the venerable profession is freely robbed from the blind and more often than not, massage parlours are a front for prostitution. sad time.
turning tide . South Korea, decades of court battle, finally, constitutional law passed to protect the livelihood of blind masseurs. Nepal, giant effort to train the blind into the profession and constitutionally guaranty their right .
next time you need massage therapy, demand … at gun point if necessary, the service of a professionally trained blind masseur. their hands can see as well as feel .
Bravo South Korea Bravo Nepal.
