PRAVIN Narayan is partially visually impaired, but he has overcome this challenge and manages to support his family.
Speaking to this newspaper under the Include Disability Employ this Ability (IDEA) heroes program, Mr Narayan said he used to see clearly before.
"...But as I get older, the nerves in my eye have only gotten worse," the light helper at United Apparel said.
Following his graduation from Saraswati College, Dilkusha, he had trouble finding a job for some time before United Apparel offered him one. He has been at this job for 20 years now.
"I don't look back, I only look forward," he said.
Mr Narayan, who is married with two children, said his wife, who also works at United Apparel, often assisted him in moving around.
He also expressed his grattitude to United Apparel for giving him the opportunity to prove himself.
His message to people with disabilities was for them to never lose hope, to look forward and pray often.
United Apparel assistant general manager Bipen Patel said eight people with disabilities worked for the company.
"They are given enough opportunity to prove themselves being equal, but we do give them certain priorities such as moving in and out earlier or later so it is not along with the crowd, but otherwise, they are treated quite equally."
