I was barely 18 when I lost my father. From then on, life changed. I became serious about my life and my responsibilities.
Since then I kept performing well academically and I pursued my ambition relentlessly of being a Chartered Accountant.
On 11th July 2006, there were a series of bomb blasts in the local trains in Mumbai (India). That day I left from work early, becoming a victim of the blasts.
I suffered a ‘DEBILITATING SPINAL CORD INJURY’- A term which was unknown to me and my family.
I remember the day I was first termed a ‘PARAPLEGIC’. It changed the way I lived forever.
I made a CRUCIAL DECISION to MOVE ON from being sorry for myself and TAKING ON what life had thrown at me.
With a single-minded focus, I continued pursuing CA and finally qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 2008.
However, after passing my CA, getting a job was tough. Companies REJECTED ME only because I was Paraplegic.
5 years ago I started as an entrepreneur with my own firm named CA Chauhan & Co.
