Chetan was just 3 years old when he was affected by Wilson’s disease which left him bedridden for two years. Chetan‘s speech and hand movements were severely affected. Initially as he struggled to come to terms with the disease and the accompanying muscular problems, he distinctly recalls the intensely comforting support and affection received from his parents, neighbours and several others. With medication he gradually became better, completed BA along with courses in graphics, web designing and CorelDRAW. Chetan’s life took a turnwhen he met other people with disabilities in NGOs like Stepping Stones Center and Cheshire Homes, where he underwent courses. Though he was not serious about working till then,an intense desire to take up a job and help persons with disability took over him. At the age of 31, still struggling with his speech and hand movements, Chetan joined ‘Shared Service Training Course’ at the Livelihood Resource Centre (LRC), Samarthanam, on 15 Feb, 2016. After the course, he attended an interview at Accenture scheduled by the placement team at Samarthanam and was offered a job as Transaction Processing New Associate in the Non Contact Centre. He was in high spirits and so were his parents. He believes that, though he did not take up a test at Accenture, if he had, he would have excelled in it like everyone else. Chetan was content on getting a job with an IT major like Accenture. Chetan still nurses the ambition to empower the disabled and wants to accomplish that as well.
