Each individual needs to pursue goals with energy and focus and determination is one such force that gives us energy to triumph. Aditya Mehta is one strong person who has used his determination to make his dreams into realities and live his life by his highest values. His determined nature and self-belief led him to new paths of success and he has also proved that believing in oneself can change years of tradition in positive ways.
In 2006, in an unfortunate bus accident, Hyderabad para-cyclist, Aditya Mehta, lost his leg and initially he had no interest towards cycling. Whenever he tried to ride a bicycle initially, he fell down several times even before reaching one kilometre of distance. He wanted to ride for a noble cause always. He didn’t give up and as a result, he recently rode his bicycle for a distance of 1450 Kms from New Delhi to Mumbai without his cosmetically constructed leg. His will-power and inner strength gave Aditya courage and the ability to be capable of helping differently-abled athletes. In 2012, he travelled from Bengaluru to Hyderabad in just three days which is the distance of 540 Km and he was able to raise Rs 17 Lakh. For his desire to make all athletes with disabilities live an honorable life, he puts in all efforts to raise funds and lend them financial support for their travel expenses and sponsorship’s and equipment’s.
He does all this through his ‘Aditya Mehta Foundation’ which is solely dedicated for this purpose. His hard work got his name registered in the Limca Book of Records in 2014 when he rode from London to Paris. He has also traveled from Manali to Khardunga which is world’s highest motor-able road at 18380 feet and also went from Kashmir to Kanyakumari whose distance is 3800 Kms which he covered in 36 days. Aditya Mehta Foundation gives courage to people with disabilities to pursue sports and teaches them a strong message that nothing is impossible.
