In the face of adversity, it is necessary to keep courage, explained rapper and singer Sparsh Shah who was born with 40 broken bones owing to a rare incurable genetic disorder that makes his bones fragile. In this inspiring video, he said, “Fifteen years and 130 fractures later, I have realised that my purpose is bigger than my pain and my ambition is stronger than my adversity. Disabilities are not definitions. I might have broken my bones but I know there are two things that will never break me up — my voice and my spirit.”
