The artist is a shining example of what dedication and resolve can do. Despite being deaf and dumb, he didn’t let his disability come in the way of his pursuit. He is the recipient of the National Award for Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities 2017 by the President of India as also the National Youth Award 2016-17 in 2019 ( given to a deaf person for the first time).
