Manu is an astounding boy from a village near Hassan, Karnataka. Deprived of a family, he was brought to Samarthanam in the year 2011. Being physically disabled by birth was another challenge. The need for a growth has hustled him to great height already at the age of 16. Physical training should have been a barrier for him yet it wasn’t. It is one of his hobbies and PT teacher Prakash Sir is one of his favorite people. His various hobbies include drawing. Artistic skills in him are growing and he aspires to be software engineer. For a student of class eighth, having done so much is very much laudable. His story has appeared in multiple regional newspapers due to his acting skills in the Kannada Movie Chalagara. Manu is an inspiration and he couldn’t have done it alone, but in support of family like Samarthanam. Every opportunity given to him was turned by him into achievement.
