Vandana from Rajkot, Gujarat had contracted jaundice when she was just two-days-old. The disease took a severe toll making 80 percent of her body disabled. But this did not let down Vandana’s spirit. It was barely an impediment for her to achieve her dreams. She was determined to get enrolled in school for she was passionate about her studies. Vandana — a die-hard fan of Amitabh Bachchan — fought every challenge boldly.
After completing her school, she pursued her graduation which she aced and also did a computer course. Today, she is an entrepreneur. She has her own store on the outskirts of Rajkot. Despite her physical disability, she is not dependent on anyone and is single-handedly running her a cyber cafe. With just the help of fingers on her right toe, she types, scans and prints documents, fixes computers and even fetches money from the cash box.
Everyone from her family and neighbourhood encouraged Vandana to carry on her work successfully. She is a true inspiration.
