Wheelchair tennis player on mission to promote PM’s Accessible India campaign in Chandigarh

Wheelchair tennis player and Padma Shri awardee H Boniface Prabhu missed out on regular school growing up in Bengaluru.
Wheeling his way around the premises of the Government Rehabilitation Institute for Intellectual Disabilities (GRIID) in Sector 31, Chandigarh, on Friday, Prabhu said: “I was very keen to sit in a classroom with students. If I miss doing anything, it is going to a regular school. None of the schools were accessible on a wheelchair.”
