I was born with a growth on my spine, and in what should have been a routine operation to remove it, went horribly wrong. I was left paralysed from the waist down.


Because of my disability, I was prevented from attending school. The belief in the law of karma is so strong that many believe - a disability is justice for an act committed in a previous life.


I attended 6 schools in 18 months. It was hard to be told I couldn’t learn, but I kept on pushing until I gained my education!


Even though I am in wheelchair, I became the first Indian with a disability to skydive and the first to go to Antarctica!


Although life can be hard at times you have a choice to overcome it. Keep persisting you will get there.
