How India's first disabled DJ turned dreams into reality
September 21, 2017
Meet 26-year-old Varun Khullar, India's first and the world's second disabled DJ. Delhi-based Khullar met with a major accident while travelling to Manali and was paralyzed.
Khullar said that he never had any negative thoughts and turned his experience to build his passion for DJ-ing.
He did a DJ course from the ILM academy and read books and watched YouTube to gain experience and understanding. He says Paul Johnson, who is the world's first DJ on a wheelchair, and is determined to make every single day an inspiring one, motivated him.
He wants to send a message to the authorities that disabled people must be given equal rights like everyone. He also believes that the disabled must accept themselves and their condition. He is working on his productions and will start releasing his music soon.
