Siddharth, or Sidhu as he affectionately called, is a guy affected by Cerebral Palsy early in his childhood. He has involuntary movements as he walks and talks. There’s a slight slur in his talk. Other than that, he is just like anyone else and that’s what he is fighting to emphasize.
Currently, Sidhu works as an Associate manager at IndusInd Bank. He is a Certified ‘Documentary Credit Specialist’ from Institute of Financial Services, UK and became India’s first CDCS with Cerebral Palsy. He is a recipient of National award in 2008 by Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment as ‘Best Employee with Cerebral Palsy’ given by the honorable Vice President of India on 3 Dec 2008. He was conferred the ‘Lala Kailashpat Singhania Award’ from National Society for Equal Opportunities for Handicapped and the Helen Keller awards in December 2009 for being a positive role model.
