Who Then is Blind?

I was sitting in a Commuter Omnibus yesterday, lost in thought when the omnibus stopped at a traffic light. I was close to the window so I looked onto the pavement to observe the people in the street. My attention was drawn by a visually impaired man trying to navigate his way around. I could see it wasn’t easy for him; the pavement was marred by uneven surfaces, and visible holes. I was holding on to my seat fearful that he would fall into one of those holes but he went round them with such ease, I marvelled.
