“All things are difficult before becoming easy,” says Justin Vijay Jesudas. After a car accident left him paralysed from below the neck in 2009, Tiruchi-born Justin is a vocal advocate for rehabilitation of the disabled.

The trick, says Justin, 36, is to focus on one’s ability, rather than disability. He himself balances a career as a software professional in Chennai with a nascent vocation in Paralympic swimming and rifle shooting. He even indulges his passion for long drives with the help of a customised car.
