Meethil Momaya and Ahalya Naidu Momaya, founders of Trilogy say, “Trilogy has been our labour of love and we love being part of the literary journey of a city. We were really shocked to find out that there are almost no inclusive bookshops in the city that stock books in Braille. We need to change that and we are inspired by the determination and passion Upasana has channeled into White Print. It’s an honour to be part of her journey that affects so many readers who deserve more attention and lots more books! Avid readers ourselves, we can barely begin to understand the frustration they must be feeling of not having enough books at hand, and that is why we look forward to building our collection of books in Braille.”
