The Inspiring Tryst With Destiny of Shekar Goud

From a wheelchair to climbing mountains and trekking is no mean task. But 30-year-old Shekar Goud from our city has proved that when there is a will, there is a way. His never say die attitude has helped him do the unthinkable at one point in time. Due to electric shock, Shekar lost his left leg and right hand, and his right leg too lost toes and skin. That happened when he was barely 18. When he came home, relatives would visit him and show pity. Many would ask him how he would live the rest of his life. 

Obviously, that hurt Shekar and he was on the brink of depression.But he self-motivated himself and decided to turn negative in his life to positive. He was in fact thankful to God that he was still alive. Since then he started running and cycling. He participated in many marathons and duathlons. He also cycled 4100 km from south India to north India in 58 days.

Though he has had no formal training in mountaineering, he has scaled Mount Elbrus the highest peak in Russia, Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa, Mount Kosciuszko, mainland Australia’s highest mountain. Incidentally, he is the first triple amputee to do the feat and he has no intentions to stop. Employed at Pranaam Hospital, Shekar plans to trek some mountains in the Himachal. But of late, he has been having a problem with fund collection. Earlier, he could go ahead thanks to crowd-funding. But people are no longer so forthcoming says Shekar who says he will find a way out.He is confident that if one really wants something, then the universe will come together to make it happen. Shekar Goud hopes to scale Mount Everest someday.
