Nandagopal.S (now 26 years old) was studying Electronics and Communications Engineering Diploma and was looking forward to completing his education and pursuing a career in engineering.
In March 2015, unfortunately, he met with a train accident while going back home from his college. Nandagopal sustained critical spinal injury which paralyzed his lower body below the hip and his right arm was severed.
The accident was a major setback for Nandagopal in enjoying his youth life and halted his dreams of completing his studies in engineering. He had to deal with the trauma, come to terms with with his injuries and the mental agony of facing the reality of living with it for the rest of his life. Nandagopal’s situation not only caused him severe depression but impacted his family also.
