  1. What a remarkable man! He is truly inspiring, he exudes confidence and happiness. I hope we can hear about him at the Olympics 🙂

  2. I saw his paining and paused the video. He is a great artist. I see no disability just a man that knows more than he can but knows that he will do what he can. Good luck to him.

    AN Indian cyclist born without full arms or hands was inspired to buy his own bike after watching the 2012 Olympics on television and started peddling in his native town of Patran in Punjab. And much to his family's surprise, he started cycling to nearby Patiala – a distance of 25 km – three times a week.

  5. abled body people can't do what disabled people can because everything a disabled person is a challenge. Whereas for abled body person, most of their things done are routine. So they don't pursue them like what the disabled did.
