I more likely than not been eight or nine years of age when I got an electric stun. I was climbing a tree in my town in the Churu region of Rajasthan and inadvertently touched a live link, which was obviously a 11,000-volt link. So serious was the mishap that not to mention my left hand — it must be cut off immediately — no one was certain whether I would have the capacity to recoup from it.

It probably been hard to manage the agony took after by the passionate injury encompassing it.

When I review those days, I think I didn’t endure a ton, because of my folks. They battled such a great amount to guarantee I didn’t fall behind. Since I hailed from a country region, whoever we caught would take a gander at me and say, Iski zindagi toh barbaad ho gayi (his life has been squandered at this point). You can attempt and envision how a guardian would feel when somebody says stuff like that in regards to their own tyke. Be that as it may, my folks never let me feel the warmth. That made me more decided, and all I was making progress toward was to not make myself seem feeble to the world. Also, the best way to accomplish it was to succeed, to be a champion. To be a champion, you must be a sportsman, so I began concentrating more on game. In my tenth standard, I began rehearsing each day, and soon got to be area champion in the Open class. I was giving it all I had in light of the fact that I was edgy to demonstrate I was more grounded than others. I continued winning decorations in between school, locale, and State occasions. In 2002, my mentor RD Singh helped me take part in the Para-Asian Games, and I returned from my first abroad visit with a Gold decoration, in the wake of breaking the Games record. I had no idea about Para-sports till I achieved school.
Your Gold award at Athens 2004 came despite seemingly insurmountable opposition. What amount has the situation changed for Indian para-sports from that point forward?
I feel the 2004 Paralympics award was the impetus for beginning the Paralympics development in India. The Government likewise remembered us simply subsequent to considering that the capable competitors were attempting to sparkle, though a Paralympian, with no help, had won a Gold decoration. The administration acknowledgment was trailed by a touch of assistance too.
What kind of assistance did you get?
The general emotionally supportive network was presented first and has been enhancing consistently. We improve preparing hardware, offices and physiotherapists now. Also, in particular, we are getting the opportunity to take an interest in heaps of global competitions everywhere throughout the world. Just when you play competitions will you get an opportunity to perform. On the off chance that you are sent straightforwardly for a major competition, similar to an Asiad or an Olympics, there are odds of you getting impeded by the weight. Rather, on the off chance that you have had a vibe of the enormous stage by including in world occasions, whether you win an award or not, it makes you significantly more certain while going into a World Championship or an Olympics. In that regard, the introduction has been instrumental in Indian para-competitors’ enhanced exhibitions.
How has your life changed since 2004?

I was 23 years of age in 2004, now I am 35 (giggles). I feel I have been a reliable entertainer for well over 10 years. Indeed, even subsequent to softening the world record up 2004, I made the title record while winning the Gold decoration at the World Championship in 2013. After that in 2014 at the Incheon Asian Games, I won silver. What’s more, not very far in the past, I won silver award in at the World Championship. Another enormous change I have seen is that games has got increasingly significance in India. Each Indian needs to watch, if not play, sport. Fifteen years back, it was an alternate world, yet now everybody needs Indian games to enhance and many people and establishments like GoSports are endeavoring to accomplish it.
Do you feel para-competitors don’t get acknowledgment as much as different sportspersons in India?
For beyond any doubt we don’t get our due. All things considered, you won’t locate some other sportsperson in India who has a big showdown decoration and Olympic Gold, and holds the world record for over 10 years. Be that as it may, let me let you know one thing, the mindfulness about Para-game is on the ascent and gradually we are getting more acknowledgment. Individuals think about us and our accomplishments now, and we get regard only the path those from capable games get. It gives us a feeling of accomplishment.
How would you see your part in the in an unexpected way abled group in India?

There is a high rate of in an unexpected way abled individuals in India. Our people group is, I think, around three to four for every penny of the general populace. All these in an unexpected way abled people keep on struggling to get acknowledgment from the general public. When they take a gander at a few of us, they get propelled. We resemble good examples. And every one of us, the competitors, acknowledge it and we continue telling everybody from our group that you beat physical difficulties with whatever assets you have.
