It is an old saying about a woman that -
a home is everything for a woman.

Yes, the terminology of the world is changed in the 21st century. Now a day it is not astonishing to see women administrating a big firm or company. Today, the woman has begun to think about her career looking after the home. Women are taking courses in human resource management to be expertise in the corporate sector & management.

 At this time being a woman at the age of 47 to receive five master's degrees is not an easy job. Not only that, instead being a physically challenged woman having polio by birth & possessing needs tremendous energy and patience. 

Forgetting polio and winning the battle of life occupying degrees with hard labor, patience, spirit, and determination is not child's play. Any man will certainly feel humiliated for not having such a great success. Let us heartedly congratulate Darshitaben who has been a source of inspiration for normal people. She has lived such a life unnoticing her disability that can be an inspiration to everybody. Darshitaben has realized that 'A will find a way '.

Despite being a physically challenged person, she has been awarded by 'The India Book Of Record' for proving herself a successful woman. She has been awarded twice by 'The Limca book of record' in 2007 and 2011. She is doing inspiring work more than compared to a normal human being. Ahmedabad has become a native of Darshitaben since her birth which is 9th November 1965. At the age of 8th months, her body was 100% affected by polio. Immediate nursing saved her life and there was an improvement up to 40%. Her parents did not lose heart knowing that this condition will be lifelong. Her parents did not stop the treatment. She had to exercise for five hours every day. At night she was kept in a steel box and during the daytime, she was bound to a chair so that she could learn to sit. There was no control over her body, she would fall if anybody touched her. She could live long in support of the exercises. To give her proper treatment her father, mother, brother, and sister stood at her side vigorously. They never hesitated to carry her to the Nandavan physiotherapy center from Maninagar. There Dr.Snehlataben Modi and Natubhai taught her to walk with the help of crutches. They made her stand to own herself and taught her to keep her head and heart high. Darshitaben is very much obliged to them for molding her life.

For Darshitaben schooling began at a normal age with irregular presence in the school. With the help of parents, friends, and personal coaching and the study went on. It was the condition that she could go to school if somebody carried her on a shoulder to the school. At last, her parents made arrangements to teach her at home by having tuition. Thus, schooling came to end. They wanted to give education to her daughter along with giving the treatment for polio. Her father was B.sc and her mother was B.A with English subject. So, they believed that the real heritage for the son and daughter is giving full education so that they can stand on their feet. To provide strengthen her lungs they managed to teach her vocal music. To strengthen her muscles, swimming was required, so they managed to teach her swimming. This kind of arrangement was also made for college education. After finishing her graduate degree, she faced a great shock. Her mother passed away. So her father had to carry out the responsibility of a mother as well as a father. Both study and treatment were inevitable. The family members were at her service without any hesitation. She had to be carried to the hospital and college. There was not a special facility for her to carry on education sitting at home. After graduation, getting a job was a prime problem for her. For sparing time of 8 to 10 hours was impossible for her. After the death of her mother, she tried to pen a poem. She feels that the grief in her heart comes out through tears but she does not want to cry and make everybody unhappy. Instead of crying, she began to write poems and expressed her sadness through poems that were catharsis. Thus, she took a creative approach to lessen the unhappiness. She wrote gazal and garba songs and got them printed. She also got her books printed. She became a member of the literary association. Darshitaben manages a group of poets named 'Kaleidoscope'in orient club situated near M.J.Library (Ahmedabad).In this 'Kaleidoscope 'growing men of letters recite their poems and express their feelings through their creation. She is a member of the Lions club of Vastrapur too. Her collection of poems is going to be published as 'Sparsh 'and 'Intezar'.

Depicting her activities, she says gladly, "I give services to Gujrat Cancer Society and Victoria Jubilee hospital trust and receive donations for them. I do all this work through the internet and mobile phone while staying at home. At the age of 80 years, my father observes the duty of a father and mother lovingly, caringly, and warmly without fail. My father has never thought of money while giving me treatment and education. Without their cooperation, guidance and affection, I would not have won the struggle in my life, "

Darshitaben longs to go to the USA. She wants to get the proper knowledge for child care and education. She believes that knowledge of management is necessary for every human being. So having physical limitations, she is not satisfied with her degrees. The woman passing over 40 must be a master in management if she goes out of her home. Learning has no age limitation. According to generation, I believe that every woman should increase the span of her knowledge. Today at the age of 47 years, I have a craze for studying and having 17 degrees. "I will study if I pass over 85. Knowledge of business management is required to administer any company. If we update new homely gadgets, we have to renew our brains too

All these degrees prove the proverb 'A will find a way. Even to obtain one or

two degrees for a normal individual is not a child's play. It is certainly praised worthy thing to obtain degrees up to the age of 47 years having 80 % disability and being an iron woman of the society. Darshitaben has some aims in her life. If we glance at it, we will certainly have more respect for her deeds. If one has strong willpower and wheel power thing can be achieved in life. To get trouble-free and natural mobility for the handicapped community. To help another handicapped person by giving aids and appliances. To provide wheelchairs and tricycles to the needy ones. To provide calipers, crutches, school and college fees, notebooks, textbooks, food grains, and medical expenses to poor and needy people as suitable depending on the disability. To show no hesitation and attend all conferences and associations for getting more amenities for the handicapped from the government and private sectors. To take or accept top challenges which ensure success. To be associated with various NGOs and Institutions for social welfare and benefits to this community. To keep daring and guts to meet the general as well as private property dealers for barrier-free way. To assist the handicapped with suitable jobs like data entry, call center agents, etc, and motivate them to study and be self-employed and live with self-esteem, pride, and honor in society.


To establish a good environment for handicapped persons. Darshitaben has never accepted defeat even from the very beginning of their life. Her achievement proves her significant power of determination. To make her body abled, she continuously keeps on exercises for two hours every day. Now, she gets guidance from physiotherapist friend Dr.Umang Sanghavi (residing in Canada).

She finished most of her studies staying at home. She has gained all the computer degrees from Indira Gandhi Open University. She bears such a healthy spirit that any normal person feels shame. Her two keen friends Pratik Mehta and Nitin Bhai have become helping hand for the mastery that she got in the field of computer operation. Darshitaben has started to give more attention to her trust. She is always anxious to help any physically challenged person. She is unable to walk more so she keeps a wheelchair with her. Wherever she goes, it is with her. If she has to go far she keeps the wheelchair with her in the auto ricksha. She feels that disability is not a curse but it is made a curse by society. If one is firm nothing can move from one's resolution. For that, strong willpower is required. Some so many people are physically normal but they live the life worse than disabled people. She has realized what the problem a handicapped hand forever needy and disabled people. The love, care, and warmth of her family have made her life worth living and successful. So, she longs to inspire the people through her good deeds and behavior. Lots of congratulations to Darshitaben for her great achievements on 3rd December 2013 she has been awarded by the President.


The uncomforting system of our country disappoints her as there is no proper arrangement to move upstairs for handicapped people while getting to the place of study or going to the place of Job. So, it is very difficult for a physically handicapped person to get an education or observe duty in the place of the Job sector.

The handicapped people need certain facilities like slope, washroom, and transportation facilities that are inevitable for them. She expresses her feeling, " Though I have secured many degrees, I have no Job. I am a postgraduate of four faculties. Yet, I am unable to get a proper job due to my disability. When a suitable opportunity occurred, I tried to prove myself able for the job but there was no positive reply. The desire for a job and ability are not enough for handicapped people in the field of employment. I have knocked on the door of many banks, companies, and institutions for many years but I have realized that it is very hard to be employed in a good well-reputed company or a bank sector. Sometimes, I have got shameful answers from the employees like there is no facility for a handicapped person in my office. There is no rest room office on the 5th floor and there is no lift facility available there. The post is canceled sometime. At last, I left the idea of getting a job in a private sector area. Then, I began to hold diploma degrees and tried to get a job placing the diploma certificate. But the result was zero for me. Was it not unfortunate that while appearing for an examination of a first-class as Judicial Magistrate post? I had to fight to get sitting arrangements on the ground floor as a handicapped person ?" All are equal in the eyes of Law and Judiciary section.
