Tapash is a 12-year-old boy with Down syndrome who lives in Hyderabad; this is his success story and relentless journey to achieve his dream goals! Tapash was born on May 3rd, 2009 in Hyderabad. His parents were so happy to see their adorable kid in their arms. But, unfortunately, he was admitted into a special care unit due to a health disorder. Later, his parents realized Tapash was born with Down syndrome — a genetic disorder causing intellectual disability. Tapash was prescribed medication and doctor’s supervision for nearly three years. Unlike other children his age, Tapash was not able to walk, talk, eat, and live a regular life – which we often take for granted. Until the age of six, he faced severe challenges to urinate and other bathroom-related issues. For this reason, neighbors didn’t allow him into their homes, or let him play with their children, and many schools refused to give him admission. Tapash struggled to understand this but eventually came to terms with it.

Instead of blaming his disability, he trained himself to adapt & understand important know how’s. He expressed his wish to walk and run like other normal kids to his mother. His perseverance & practice brought him almost on par with normal kids.

Despite life’s challenges and rejections, he switched his brain into a positive mode and began to understand his strengths. Tapash groomed himself to operate a Television and smartphones & realized his passion for dance.

To Pursue his passion, he practised dance vigorously & overcome his challenges. He immersed himself in learning dance and practicing martial arts. Tapash always wanted to prove his disability is not a disease, but just a delay in doing things the right way.

Tapash’s energy & passion for dance took everyone by surprise. He began to learn dance and other skills like any other normal child. Since then, he never looked back and performed on various occasions and stages pan India. Tapash has learned dancing, singing, and martial arts to prove his ability in spite of the disability he was born with.

Here’s a real-life story that teaches us to follow our passion & live a positive life. Tapash is our motivation to overcome any hurdle and improve our  mindset.
