"When you make a decision, the whole universe conspires to make it happen," is a famous quote which we have heard or read multiple times during our lifetime. Who can justify this adage better than Ashish, who despite all odds, is the sole breadwinner for his family.

Hailing from Balrampur in Chhattisgarh, Ashish was born without limbs since birth, but he works as a computer operator at a Panchayat office and is continuing his higher studies.  

"I have passed my class X examination. I earn Rs 10,000 per month but my home is 15 kms away, so I come to the office driving my scooter," Ashish said. 

Ashish's father, who accompanies his son to the office to assist him, said: "He is the sole breadwinner of the family. He doesn't have arms and legs but he does his job". 

Balrampur Collector Sanjeev Kumar Jha showered praise on Ashish and said that he has also asked a senior official to provide employment to his father too.   

"Ashish inspires many people. He is not dependent on anyone for his livelihood," Jha said.
