Pratap was just 5 years old when he went to follow through on a dare that ended up costing him all of his limbs. One of his friends bet him that he couldn’t hold an iron rod to an electric fence, the act severed his hands and his feet. It was 10 years after his accident before he finally grew up the courage to leave home. That fear is long gone now as he not only leaves his house for work every day but also makes a good living and is completely independent.
The now 29-year-old graduated college with a degree in finance and received his MBA. Physically he has his difference from many people but that doesn’t keep him from performing tasks we’re all familiar with. He even admits he loves the look on people’s faces when they see him accomplish something THEY thought was impossible.
If he got sick doctors came to the house, if he needed clothes someone would come to the house and make them for him. He learned by studying books and got around by crawling which ended up ripping his skin off over time. Now he walks and even types and can write!
“Assign me any work; I am capable of doing all of them. I don’t need sympathy of people. Treat me normally and I will love it. I wish that people and society treat disabled with respect and accept them.”
