A road accident in 1997 in Mumbai resulted in a serious spinal injury & left me as a quadriplegic – paralysed waist below. Today, although physicallychallenged with less mobility, I use an active wheel chair and drives a four wheeler to move about outside that helps to fulfill his aspirations in establishing myself as an independent individual and move forward in life. I still work with my company and work from home. Passionate about providing other spinal cord injured with the training and resources I was received in order to regain my own independence. On that dreadful night, badly injured, I was left stranded without any help for 4 dark hours.
By-standers are mute spectators are unaware of emergency care to be provided and all are worried about police implication. At early dawn, I was rescued by police on duty and finally managed to get help and got transported to a nearby hospital. Due to unattended and mishandling I suffered from spinal injury, resulting neck down paralyzed. Thus TAP was conceptualised to provide Awareness on Project Bhavishya from Prevention to Rehabilitation starting in Visakhapatnam.
