In a telephonic interview with The Times of India, Ajay, while holding the phone in his feet said, “I know who I am and what I have. I’ll make the best from it and never give up.”
Ajay also uses his feet for all other regular functions like feeding himself and brushing his teeth. “I think, if I had arms I could have done better but nevertheless now my feet are my arms,” he added.
While most people are encouraging, some even laugh at Ajay. However, there is no decrease in Ajay’s determination. Although his siblings dropped out of school after Class 8, Ajay dreams of becoming an engineer.
“When he was born we were very worried about how he would lead a normal life without arms. But over the years he has proved that his disability cannot stop him from achieving what he wants,” said Dayaram, Ajay’s proud father.
We salute Ajay’s remarkable resolve and wish him all the success in life.
