Mr. Omkar – Chartered Accountant SCALING NEW HEIGHTS Today being a Chartered Accountant from a reputed organization and getting the degree from Mr. K. Rahman Khan, Deputy Chairman of Rajya Sabha. Reaching this height has not been an easy journey for me and my parents. When I was young my father took me from school after school for getting admission in so called reputed and sophisticated schools, where every time I was refused, admission. All these experiences made me realize that I am different from others – a child with Cerebral Palsy which means I am crippled for whole life. Fortunately I could gain admission in Municipality School. I can say I was fortunate as nobody cared about my disability and I was one of them, I just couldn’t do some things as they do. By the time I reached 10th standard my spasticity become more. I was able to walk only with full support of my parents. Major surgeries took place on in 2006 and another in 2008. Due to these surgeries and regular therapies I could walk with the help of crutches. I took commerce stream in my graduation, but it was not a easy journey, the college was not disabled friendly and most of the classes took place on top floor, which I managed with great difficulty. A graduate disabled doesn’t have many options, fist to start a telephone booth or appear in competitive exams to get govt. job in reserved quota. But I choose another one doing Chartered Accountancy.
