“Shamsher was our first child and you won’t believe how I was dancing with joy at his birth. But we could sense something was not right while he was growing up. Finally, my wife and I accepted that Shamsher was different.
He is special. So special in fact that he won Olympic Silver and Bronze Medals! He is a world recognised Snow Shoe Athlete - who would have thought? My little boy, who could not even eat on his own, underwent a transformation. He grew into an amazing man and athlete at Ambuja Manovikas Kendra (AMK) and we are so proud of him.
And see him today! We only need to wake him up in the morning and he’s off. He gets ready, packs his tiffin box, rides his bicycle, and takes the passenger bus for AMK. This is the same child whom people once pitied. ‘Ek cheez jisme main hamesha yakeen karta hoon ki Mehnat karne se hi barkat hoti hai (I always believe that success follows hard work)’.
I was sure that Shamsher had potential, but didn’t realise how much….Imagine the amount of hard work that must have gone into making our son a hero.” -
