In 1997, Amir was only 8 when he lost both his arms in a severe accident that took place in his father’s sawmill. Due to the accident, his father had to sell the business and land so as to pay for the all the medical requirements and rehabilitation of Amir. Lone would have lost his hope if it were not for his family. His grandmother was a tremendous support when she convinced him to go back to school. But it was not even a bit pleasant of a scenario for him there. The teacher had declared that he was a misfit for the school and that he should probably go to a school for the disabled.
When the growing un-supportiveness from people was, naturally, about to take a toll over Amir, instead it only put more courage inside of him.In between of all this, there is one thing that Amir always wanted to do- play cricket. It was a favourite for Amir and he knew that he could not detach himself from that this sport. However, the very idea of it aroused a round of mockery for the young man; he did not lose, he could not; it was not an option. This time, he knew what he was doing and had his full heart and intentions to do so. This youthful soul has found a spot as a captain in Kashmir’s state-para cricket team. Today, he is closer to his dreams than any of us could ever.
