Losing his hands to electrocution, Vikram Agnihotri is the first Indian to get a driving license.

This man, Vikram Agnihotri lost both his hands at the age of seven to electrocution.But soon losing his hands, this brave man trained his legs to do everything that could be done by his hands. He trained himself so well that he never felt that he was missing something in his life.

Vikram didn't give up on himself after the incident but continued leading a normal life and completed his schooling in a regular school. He also pursued his master's degree and is currently a motivational speaker, running a gas agency.

Vikram trained his legs for everything except one, he could not drive and had a full-time driver. This thought of being dependent on someone pushed him to learn driving.Three years ago Vikram tried everything to get his hands on the car on his own. No driving classes were ready to teach a physically challenged person and therefore he took his lessons through youtube.

Today Vikram is the first physically challenged Indian to have a driving license.Currently, Vikram is a motivational speaker at Vital Park Welfare Society and serves as a chairman. He also swims and lays football. His hands were surely taken away but he never let that come in his way to leading a normal life.
