Sometimes life throws such big challenges at us that most of us just give up but Delhi's Eric Paul isn't an ordinary man, he is a fighter. Eric had been confined to a wheelchair since February 2012 following a road accident. Paralysed from the chest down, 29-year-old Eric just made it into the Limca Book of Records after he drove from Leh to Kanyakumari in record time.

Eric covered 3,917 km in 159 hours and 59 minutes in his customised hatchback car with hand controls. He even crossed the world's highest motorable road passes in Leh. According to a report in NDTV, Paul expressed his happiness and the challenges he had to face while talking to PTI.

It feels really good but I think I have just crossed a milestone and there is a long way to go. There were many challenges on my way like no toilets, restrooms, shelters or any public place which is wheelchair friendly. Neither people are aware of offering any help, instead, they look with pity, which makes a special person uncomfortable. Other challenges were instant changing weather conditions, no mobile network, petrol pumps at long distances in hilly areas, poor condition of roads, landslides, language barrier while getting food and shelter was also a task.

This is not the first time when Eric had done something so badass. Just last winter he completed the 'Golden Quadrilateral' road task of the Limca Books to set a record. He drove 6,000 km, from Delhi to Mumbai and then Bengaluru, Chennai to Kolkata in less than seven days to enter the Limca Book of Records.

So, basically, he has two records in the Limca Book of Records and I was never even mentioned in my school magazine for once! 

Just like any traveller, Eric is an ardent follower of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'Swachh Bharat Abhiyan', and he campaigned for cleanliness during his two record expeditions across the country.

Meanwhile, he is preparing for his next record-setting drive, while also hoping to achieve the goal of educating people and raising awareness about the disabled.

I want to see a new India which is accessible for people like me or with any other disability. It is only possible when the whole society comes together and work in this area. I'll try my best to contribute towards this.

You motivate a lot of us, Eric Paul. And, just so you know, your story is a lot better than the recent Fast & Furious movies!
