Paralyzed woman turns disabled rights activist



VADODARA: She was declared dead by doctors in USA thrice in September 2006 as they could not detect malaria leading to complications. But, 26-year-old Virali Modi is now back on her feet, thanks to stem cell therapy which she underwent at Mumbai, and is now working as disability rights activist with Indian Railways.
Modi was in city on Thursday to raise awareness about rights for disabled persons and stem cell therapy. Modi, who walks with the help of a walker now, started a campaign – ‘My train too’ – after she was manhandled by porters in 2008 when she was to travel to Delhi from Mumbai by train.
