Raja Mahendra Pratap

Pratap hails from Hyderabad. When he was around 5years old, he was challenged by his friends to hold an iron rod into an open electric wire. This unfortunate challenge changed his life, within seconds electricity surged his entire body causing amputation of his legs and hands. He couldn’t attend school, as he was even ashamed to move out of his house. But his sisters were the source of motivation. With their constant support he gathered courage and soon started using the computer efficiently with his mouth and ankle, write with the help of his jaws and walk on his knees.
He managed to complete his education, along with a scholarship from the ‘National Center for Promotion of Employment of Disabled People’. Today he offers scholarships to the disabled students.
