Kalpesh Chaudhary

Kalpesh Chaudhary was just five months old when he developed a severe fever and polio took away his ability to use both his legs. He did not let it stop him from achieving what he was determined to do. Though he could not study after Class 11 due to his family’s financial condition, he used his natural inclination towards business and today runs a successful diamond trading company that has an annual turnover of about Rs.10 crores. Highly motivated to help others like himself, Kalpesh started a WhatsApp group for people with disabilities and plans to start a Facebook page and website as well.
