GIRISH GOGIA - Dr Batra's Positive Health Hero 2016

GIRISH GOGIA (One-legged badminton champion)

In the year 1999, he was at a beach in Goa to usher in the millennium. As a confident ocean diver, he took off the cliff. Unfortunately, one miscalculated dive changed his life completely. Since then he have been completely paralyzed neck downwards due to a cervical spinal cord injury which left all his limbs immobile (a Quadriplegic), 50% of respiratory function, failure of bladder, no bowel movements and zero sensation in almost 90% of his body.

In spite of all the adversities and trials, he didn’t allow hope to cease. He realized that nothing was impossible. It was all about the indomitable spirit & mind over matter. Through his trials and tribulations, he has discovered that the positive, passionate and progressive attitude helped him excavate himself from the morasses of life and proceed positively. He has realized that the time had come to act, instead of sulking.

As a human being he feels that it’s his duty to share his experiences with others and convey the message of positivity. Hence, he has undertaken this mission to enlighten as many souls as possible through the power of Positive Energy in order to change their perception towards life.
