Inspiring: Lost both arms at the age of 7, yet he drives, swims...

Vikram Agnihotri’s demand for driving licence has left Regional Transport Office (RTO) officials bewildered as the man drives car with all precision, but not with his hands.

Vikram lost his arms in an accident when he was just seven-year-old. But this didn’t stop him in fulfilling his dreams and today he can drive car easily, even on the busiest of roads.

But traffic rules are now acting as a hindrance as there is no law to provide driving license to physically disabled person.

According to Madhya Pradesh transport minister Bhupendra Singh, government will consider giving a license to Vikram after conducting a special driving test for him.

Vikram did his schooling in Germany after which he completed his graduation and post-graduation from Indore. Now he is pursuing LLB.
According to reports he cleared exams of IIM-Ahmedabad twice, but couldn’t get admission because of his physical disability.

In many countries, physically disabled persons are allowed to drive but there is no such provision in India.
In such countries, people get the car modified for this but Vikram can drive without any modifications.

Vikram can swim, can type with his legs, does shaving and operates Smartphone from his nose.
