Speaking to PTI, Yash said he would soon join the Microsoft company’s Bangalore office as a software engineer, initially being asked to work from home.


Yash was diagnosed with glaucoma after birth; when he was just eight years old, Yash lost his sight entirely due to glaucoma. But without giving up their determination, Sonakiya’s family worked hard for Yash’s education. Yash’s father, Yashpal Sonkia, runs a restaurant in Indore. Yash started studying with the help of screen-reader software. He completed his education using this software, from school-college to B.Tech.

In 2021, he graduated with a B.Tech degree from Govindram Seksaria Institute of Technology and Science (SGSITS), a government-aided college, while learning to code and started looking for a job.

Yash was so confident in his abilities that he kept Microsoft’s goal in mind while applying for the job. After an expected online test and interview, he was selected for a software engineer position at Microsoft. Not only this, but Yash also got a vast offer of Rs 47 lakh per annum.
