But many of these disabled people have the will and the strength to move mountains. They do not let their disability stand in the way of achieving their dreams. Some with the help of technology and others with sheer grit and determination, they walk towards their dreams and show the world that they too are just are important and no, their physical disability is not a barrier. One such brave lady is 37 year old Shalini Saraswathi from Bengaluru.
Shalini now plans to participate and run in the TCS World 10K in Bangalore, a 10km run marathon which is open for participants over the age of 15.
While Shalini admits that the initial days were tough and she just wanted the whole ordeal to be over, she is now excited about it and wants to test herself and see how far she can go. She also hopes to inspire people through her run and also try and get sponsors for her future dream as the prosthetics and equipments are expensive.
