I began my journey with Manzil Welfare Society (NGO) in year
2006. The reason for joining this NGO was to do my academics. I understand a
question will arise that this can be done at other school then why Manzil. As
other mischievous kids I also use to be a loitering kid but my mother knew that
a correct direction will be given to me if I join Manzil. At Manzil I not only
got academic knowledge but they give me clarification to the struggle which was
going inside me. I use to do what anybody use to tell me, I didn’t had focus
and didn’t know what life is.
In India when you see a person on wheelchair you feel that
it's may be by birth or some illness that a person is using a wheelchair. What
we don't realize that it could be an accident that changes the life of a normal
person and makes them wheelchair bound and we start feeling pity for them.
But when we see few wheelchair users propelling their
wheelchairs as fast as possible and striking with each other to gain the
possession of rugby ball then that really surprises you and a proud feeling
takes over from the sympathy.
I was first told that I had been given a great opportunity to write about Lalit
Saini, little did I know that even the word ‘great’ did not do justice to the
beauty of the stories that were later told.
