World at their feet

The first time Somya Dawar travelled solo, it was a month-long work trip to the US. Ever since her accident in 2003 left her immobile waist down, she had never travelled without her family. When she arrived at the hotel, Dawar realised that the room was not suited to her needs. The door to the washroom wasn’t wide enough for her wheelchair.
A consultant with an IT company, Dawar, 32, is preparing to travel alone once more. A Delhi resident, she is going to Goa with Umoja, a travel company that caters to the specially-abled. “It’s fun to vacation with my family but travelling by myself has its own charm,” says Dawar.
