He loved outdoors but the accident changed everything. His spinal chord got compressed, body paralyzed completely, except a few hand movements, but his mind opened up completely.
He started to look at everything positively. He got himself a wheel chair & modified his car so he could continue driving.
He completed his undergrad with distinction & joined his dad’s business. He soon realised he needed to learn business skills so he decided to go for his MBA.
He prepared for the CAT & secured a 99.55% in the exam through self study. He got a final admit from almost all the IIMs & decided to join IIM Bangalore.
IIM Bangalore constructed an elevator in the mens hostel on his request. It will help all future students.
He completed his MBA recently. In the placements he secured a Big 4 consulting job offer, 7 years after his accident.
As I chatted with him he said “My parents support encourages me to push myself.
They are my backbone now.
This is just the beginning.
Now it is my turn to make them proud”
