After four months of rigorous training sessions, he made a flawless debut on screen in his first bulletin of 22 minutes. His family could not be happier since he made an appearance on TV, reports The Better India .

“Talent cannot be restricted by disability. No disabled child should be isolated by society. My request to all parents is if you have a disabled child make them an achiever. Disability should not limit the disabled child to achieve what a normal child could otherwise achieve,” said Kalaiarasi, Sriramanujam’s mother.
Sriramanujam, a 5th grader, has already proved his excellence in studies. He wants to study and become an IAS officer one day.
