Product Description

Para-Swimmer. Martial Artist. Dancer.

Vishwas dons many hats, and he dons them well.

At ten, when he loses his arms in a tragic accident, the sudden and debilitating limitations zap the light from his world. Things that required little to no effort are now traumatizing, challenging and downright impossible. Heartbreak insidiously colours Vishwas's adolescence – every day a constant reminder of what could have been. But bright lights dot his gloomy skies. With the support and love he receives from his family, friends and coaches, he evolves into a formidable force. And on his way to building a legacy as a successful para-swimmer, the Bengaluru wunderkind unwittingly inspires those wading through the tricky rapids of life.

Grit: The Vishwas Story is an illustrated ode to a man who surpasses unimaginable hardships and comes out the other end with integrity, optimism and gratitude. This powerful and tender tale will break your heart and put the pieces back together with a hopeful, life-affirming touch.
