My Story

“I was partially conscious on the road and calling for help. Passersby decided to ignore me and just walk by. Finally, a grandmother gave me water and an auto driver took my unconscious uncle and I to a hospital. From there, we were shifted to another hospital, except they did not have space. We headed to a third hospital. More than seven hours after the accident, I had five major surgeries and two minor surgeries. My leg was amputated.

I come from a normal family. We work hard, eat our meals, and live a simple life. It felt like with my legs, I had lost my dreams too. I wanted to make my country proud as an international kabbadi player. Suddenly, I did not have any goals. That was only until my support system entered the picture.

My friends taught me to ride a bike. My brother taught me to cycle. My coach trained me to become the fastest bionic walker at the Cybathlon 2016 in Zurich. All of them made me a national basketball player.

Today again I dream of making my country proud. I shall go to Tokyo for the Paralympics and represent India in wheelchair tennis. I dream of being a wise leader, like Captain America. My dreams have risen again, reborn like a phoenix.”
