"It's not about how hard you can hit; It's about how much you can take and keep moving"- Rocky.
You love to play a sport and all of a sudden God takes the most important equipment, your hands, away from you and all your dreams get crushed just as your bones. What will you do? Give up? At least, a majority of us will.
But this is the time when true champions are made. This is also the time when the power of universe put you on the toughest test of your life. Now whether to give up or to take a stand is all that matters. Let us not talk about the ones who fell short in motivating themselves enough (as they don't deserve a mention) and talk about the minor, extremely minor group of the people who break every negativity and believe in the world of "Yes I can".
Dare to create your own universe as this young man did.
I am still shaking as I am witnessing a man who is able and brave enough to be a batsman while having nothing but a strong neck to hold a bat.
What's important in life is not what you do with your own life, but how much are you able to inspire the people around you.
Spinning a cricket ball using toes of his right leg's foot, is he even a human? Or a superhuman?
No normal one can even dare to think of something that this young man full of adrenaline acheived. He bowls spin, hits fours and sixes and never let anyone raise a finger on him.
It all happened after an accident that took place when he was still very young. He lost his limbs in the incident.
Holding a spoon with his foot. Is the food still tasty? Hell tasty I say.
Sports can change worlds. A ball can change the world. If he can, you too can. He proved all this right.
And you will complain that you need to go to the barber to have a shave, shame.
For me, he is specially and supremely abled and that proves when he uses his foot to write. Is holding a pen with feet against ethics? I laugh at this thinking now.
Because he is the one who listened bad from everyone in the locality and still raised his son with honour.
But wow, this cricketer is a heavily self motivated and amazingly powerful.
