Mr. Saroha kickstarted his sports career as a national-level hockey player before he was paralyzed in a car accident in 2007. Aged only 22 at that time, Mr. Saroha’s un-quenching thirst for Sports and determination to win at International Level Competitions has certainly raised the competition bar and he has undoubtedly taken Paralympics Sports in India to the next level.
