Wheelchair is like a limb to people like us: Harman Sidhu

“I THINK a wheelchair is like a limb to the handicapped person,” says Harman Singh Sidhu. The 46-year-old man, who runs NGO Arrive Safe India, should know. He has been confined to a wheelchair since 1996, when he was paralyzed in a road accident
“I was bedridden after my accident for nearly two years and then in 1998 I somehow managed to move my life on a wheel chair. It’s become my wheel of life now,” says Sidhu, a resident of Sector 21.  With his two-decade first-hand experience of navigating Chandigarh in a wheelchair, Sidhu says steps taken by the UT Administration fall short of the minimum requirements of people like him.
