“Be yourself and then the magic starts to love life!” “My concept of patience is remembering how my mom had to wait nine years to see me go to school, and another ten years to see me become a little independent and then ten more to become fully independent!”- — Siddharth

“My Respects for this fighter who is the bravest man I have ever met. His story is a must read for everyone to be truly inspired”

Dr Kiran Bedi,

India’s First Woman IPS Officer.

“As we look to instant answers to everything from love to parenting, here is a book that tells us of love, perseverance & dedication. These are universal feelings all can empathise. Special children are special because they show you a life made of humane abilities. A must read for anyone who wants to be inspired by a person & his whole support system of family and friends that overcame & not overwhelmed at some of life's tough questions. As parents we set expectations at every milestone. Here is a parent who left no stone unturned to ensure Sid go that extra mile. Sid's mom Komala has truly shown what strong belief and hope can do in a child’s life

My deepest appreciation”
