I born on 25 – 06 – 1986 in a small town called Chinthamani, Kolar District now it is Chikkaballapura District. With my family i enjoyed my childhood, I have three brothers and two sister all of them elder than me. My mother and father always encouraged me in my studies to lead my life without dependence. Brother Krishna is supported me in money for my education he is illiterate, but he knows the value of education, he haven’t seen school in his life but he always encouraged me to study. And he expected returns from me nothing. My sister Rajeshwari, she is like Mother for me what ever job I am doing now it is just because of her, she use to carry me for the school and while coming back she use to brings me along with her to home.
Whatever knowledge I have now it is just because of her support and love and affection. I thank god for giving me such a wonderful sister in my life, I have seen the people who disrespect their brothers and sisters, I have seen the people who wont respect elders, when it comes to me I am luckiest person.
With my sister help I completed my 4th standard, it is the time to join Middle school I need some one help to travel to school, off course I have my sister to help, but I thought I cant put any pressure on her any more I decided to take three wheel Cycle for my mobility, after six months I got cycle from the government. My sister got some rest for herself. And she can move without any responsible with her friends anywhere she likes. Finally she got independence from me.
There I started my own journey without dependence on others. It made me happy and my family especially for my mother, in the school I am the last in lesions but I am good in art, making dolls, sketching, and making noise in the class, yes I am last but except Science. In Science always I am the first.
I finished my middle school with out any fail and i joined to the The Governmet High School In chinthamani on 1999.
When I joined high school that is the first time I face the problem with my classmates. Discriminating towards people with disability, then I realized the truth I am physically unable to do specific work which need the physical efforts. I haven’t seen in my life the pain I gone through that situation. I cursed the god for giving me this situation in my life. There I felt I am alone in this world. Some how I thought I should be something in the world.
Yes My journey is UN forgettable.
My friends use to play the Cricket, Football and other games, when they playing I use to sit one corner of the ground and watch them, yes it is unforgettable situations, I have no words to explain the pain I have gone through. This pain indirectly affected my studies I am not able concentrate on anything except the drawing the pictures. And some times sitting alone and talking to the stones, hills, tress, and my favorite god Lord Shiva’s Statue. Some how I manage to pass my S.S.L.C examination in 2002.
I joined for the college in 2002 for P.C.M.B. I passed the first year examination with lowest marks. In second year I am not able to do the Chemistry Practicles because I can’t do jobs with chemicals that is just because of my disability. It is too late for understand these issues. i failed in chemistry there I felt again I am disable.
I left my studies and started to teach for small children in my home I use to get Rs. 500 per month. No satisfaction with my work. But there is no ways I should earn and get some money and continue my studies. One day I am reading the paper I saw the add APD its non government organization which gives computer training for people with disabilities but it is in Bangalore. I took my sister Rajeshwari help and took bus to Bangalore on January 14th 2005. And i got shock coming from far I thought waste time and money because they said to pay for the course. I have to pay Rs.8, 000.00 for the one year course. When I requested them they gave concession for Rs.4, 500.00 even though I can’t pay that much amount. For that I agreed.
Course conducted 15th January 2005 onwards “The Advanced Diploma in Computer Application” I got part time job in a small STD booth from 5 PM to 10 PM at the evening time work for part time, the good words I heard when I am in half way of my certificate course, my course coordinator said she is going elect me after the course me as “Graphic Designing Faculty” That is the happiest day in my life which I cant forget.
I got certificate on 19th January 2006. That next day itself I joined for my work 20th January 2006 is the first day as employee in APD. I thought I am the happiest person in my life and I took decision I should stay few days here and help like me others who needed the future. And improved what ever way I wanted to live in this world, I am doing work now in APD from Three years, and this time to go to next level, but I am not living the organization. Now I wanted to do Animation Course it will cost Rs:1,00,000 for do the course
