Eric Paul

It takes will power and determination to overcome the hardest situations in life, but there are only a few who have the courage to push the boundaries. And Eric Paul, who is a paraplegic, is one among the few. Eric, who is paralysed from the chest below, drove his way into the Limca Book of Records by covering the miles between Leh and Kanyakumari in a record 159 hours and 59 minutes. He is getting ready for another record-setting road expedition and is also raising awareness about issues of disabled people.
