True to the words of Olympic swimming legend, para-athlete Amit Kumar Saroha hasn’t stopped dreaming. Life has presented him with severe challenges. At the end he turned out to be a tough nut in brushing the obstacles aside. Mr. Saroha has been honored by the President of India with Arjuna Award in 2013.

Mr. Saroha kickstarted his sports career as a national-level hockey player before he was paralyzed in a car accident in 2007. Aged only 22 at that time, Mr. Saroha’s un-quenching thirst for Sports and determination to win at International Level Competitions has certainly raised the competition bar and he has undoubtedly taken Paralympics Sports in India to the next level. Mr. Amit Saroha puts it in simple words, “Pursue your dream tirelessly, put in the hard work required and you can then achieve your goal no matter how difficult it is.
