Chirag Chauhan was an average student and it was only in the tenth standard final examination that he managed a first class.
Chirag Chauhanwas among the survivors of the serial train blasts on July 11, 2006 which claimed over 180 lives. That day he had left for home early when a bomb exploded in the suburban local at Khar Road station. His spinal cord was damaged due to the explosion and some particles are still embedded in his chest and close to the trachea.
Despite his debilitating injures, he pressed on with his course and completed it on July 12, 2008. He lost his father when he was 18 and was faced with the prospect of looking after his sisters and mother, something he can proudly do now.
Chirag Chauhan, now wheel chair-bound, is a full-fledged CA working as a senior manager. These success stories prove that it is possible to achieve success in CA examination despite physical challenges and financial hardship.
