Ashla Rani, volunteer for Pallium India, shares this news of Sidhartha Babu with us:

Sidhartha, a paraplegic shooter, was initially denied permission to participate in the National Games. But he persisted, and later was granted permission to compete in the prone category. And he has emerged as a state champion, rubbing shoulders with top professional shooters. Read the news in The New Indian Express: Beating severe odds to emerge champ

Ashla, herself a quadriplegic and a part-time software engineer, writes:
“Dear Sidhartha, You made my day. Of course the first thought was, Kudos, friend, very happy for you. What an achievement! You make me realise that it is true; sky is indeed the limit. Nothing can limit you unless you limit yourself. Keep inspiring!”
