But his search for securing an employment as a teacher in disabled quota still remained a distant dream. He feels that his cent per cent disability was not sufficient for securing a job in spite of clearing the DSC-2008 examination.

Meet K. Arun Kumar (29), who lost his hands when he came into contact with live wires in Hyderabad in the year 1991. When he was shifted to Osmania General Hospital, the doctors amputated his burnt and paralysed limbs. The disability did not hold back Arun from proving his mettle in studies and continued his education by writing with his legs. Now, with the help of legs, he fetches water from the well, bathes on his own, wears clothes, combs his hair, reads and writes and even plays cricket, chess, caroms etc. Presently, he is working as Vidya volunteer in government primary school in Katta Rampur locality of the town and conducting tuitions for the students to eke out his livelihood. He writes on blackboard with the help of legs only and wins appreciation from his students.

It is surprising to observe that he even carries and uses cellular phone with the help of his legs. His parents Madhava Rao and Jayashree both working in private schools as teachers were unable to provide him with artificial limbs because of abject poverty.

Arun told The Hindu here on Thursday that he wanted to become a good lecturer or a teacher provided if any philanthropists comes to his rescue to provide him with artificial limbs. If not, at least the government should help him secure employment or assistance for his self-employment scheme so that he would fix artificial limbs on his own, he maintained.

He said that he has no regrets for becoming disabled. “Though I'm disabled physically, but not mentally and I'm happy to teach the poor students in government schools as Vidya volunteer with the help of legs,” he said and appealed to the philanthropists to assist him in pursuing M. Ed and computer education.
