“My dad wanted me to join the army. From a very young age, I was motivated to do something for our country and that led me to join National Defence Academy right after I completed my schooling. After 4 years of training at the National Defence Academy and the Indian Military Academy, I got selected for the Parachute Regiment which is the Airborne Special Force of India.
I was injured in combat in J&K while on a counter terrorist operation. When I was hospitalised after my injury, I developed deep empathy and strong social inclinations. I decided to pursue my new passion for social impact. After a military career of 11 years including the training, I decided to transition into the civil world and pursue my passion for social impact, wherein I wanted to touch the lives of as many people as possible. I started with Re-forestation and Motivational speaking. Soon I joined my friend and former Special Force colleague Major. Vivek Jacob in his venture ‘CLAW Operation Blue Freedom’. ‘CLAW Operation Blue Freedom’ is a social initiative to demonstrate phenomenal potential that ‘Freedom’ can have on our lives.
As a team, we work towards giving skill development training to people with disabilities and helping them have access to adventure sports thereby working on their self confidence, their thought process and their holistic development.
As part of ‘CLAW Operation Blue Freedom’, we have trained close to 80 people with disabilities in SCUBA Diving. We’re in the process of breaking 3 world records by people with disabilities in all three elements of Law, Air and Water. This is done by our team (Team C.L.A.W – Conquer Land Air Water), which is a team of former Special Forces Soldiers working closely with people with disabilities. We want people to join this grand initiative in whatever manner they can, in terms of skills, resources and supports. We are chronicling ‘CLAW Operation Blue Freedom’ through social media and outreach activities. People can follow us through that too.
Ultimately, we want people to make ‘Freedom’ an intrinsic part of their lives and leverage the concomitant catalysis of life force, productivity and creativity to achieve whatever they dream. Together we can!”
