Impact

“I’m not lesser than anyone!”

“I don’t think of myself as having a disability, so I keep my life as normal as possible. I change two buses everyday from Lokhandwala to Matunga to get to work and like everyone else I work hard to make an honest living.

This is my 4th marathon and I complete it every year because I love to run! I feel so good while running that it’s difficult to explain the in words — when people are cheering and clapping, it makes me believe that I’m like everyone else– that I’m not lesser than anyone. I may be 46 years old and only 3 feet 3 inches in height but right now, I feel like I’m the happiest person in the world!”
