First physically challenged Indian to paraglide at 5,000 ft
July 10, 2016
Shashi Sharma of Shimla in Himachal Pradesh got polio when he was two years old and this left him with up to 90% physical disabilities. He never let that come in the way of hid dreams.
He is the first person with disabilities in India to paraglide at 5,000 ft. He has also covered a distance of 600 km from Shimla to Rajasthan in a single day on his motorcycle.
Shashi says he loves to face challenges and wishes to fulfill his dreams despite difficulties.
But he says the government should do more to assist people with disabilities.
