Enabled strong enough to stand with dignity
31 August 2021
Often we have seen people with disabilities reeling through a great deal of stress while meeting their daily life needs. Unlike abled persons, meeting the complex needs with a disability can trigger a range of unsettling emotions and fears. But Arun Kumar chose to live a life with dignity, fighting all the systematic and physical barriers.
A differently-abled person, Arun today runs a mobile phone service centre at Vellichand village near GMR Krishnagiri SIR (Special Investment Region) Ltd. But his life was a misery a few years ago. When Arun was in college, he lost his right leg in an accident while going to college. He had to discontinue his studies as his parents were daily wagers and could not save enough. He lost all hopes of securing a bright future. His lack of education and physical disability proved to be a huge disqualification when he started chasing employment opportunities.
