Very inspirational story

Recommended Posts

Nothing in the world has ever been accomplished without passion. And passion is something Sumit Singh has aplenty! While most of us shrug at the idea of taking two-wheels out for a spin, or to commute if we are tired, or down with a backache, here is a person, who is setting a living example of determination, grit and positive attitude towards life, and yes, biking as well!

Sumit Singh, twenty years of age, is a typical youngster. He likes watching the latest flicks, hanging out with friends and yes, likes riding his Pulsar 220 too. But, unlike his riding buddies, Sumit is physically handicapped, having lost his right leg in an accident a few years ago. While standing outside his school one day, Sumit fell victim to the notorious Blueline buses that have turned into death on wheels in the capital of India, New Delhi. His right leg had to be amputated and since then, life has not been the same for him.


It took months for Sumit to get normal, coming to terms with the reality. But his parents were a constant pillar of strength for him, encouraging him to look up to life with a positive and challenging attitude. Sumit badly needed a way out to ease the mental pain of having a physical handicap and his mother supported him with the idea of having to ride a motorcycle. Though his father was a bit apprehensive, Sumit never looked back ever since and achieved his aim of riding on two-wheels.

His parents gifted him a Bajaj Pulsar 220, which was immediately modified to accommodate the brake lever on the left side, next to the gear shifter. This was done at Salim

Very courageous example sat by Sumit. He is a true fighter against adversity.


I am surprised by the helpful attitude of RTO. Hope they did not harrass Sumit for the license or charged him the usual bribe.


About Blue line buses, less said the better. Since most of the blueline owners are politicians, babus or police walas, so no action is taken against them and they are free to kill or maim the public.
