Here is Arun's Story in Detail
R Arun Premsingh was born in the early morning hours of March 15th, 1981, was unfortunately diagnosed with this rare giant leg disease. Arun was put into the ICU just after his birth to fight for his life. Doctor’s didn’t expect Arun to live for more than 2-3 weeks but he was born with the zeal to fight against all odds and he survived.
Doctors examined Arun and gave up on him indicating that nothing can be done, furthermore they were not able to identify the problem Arun had. But he and his family didn’t.
Arun did his schooling from St. Joseph’s Anglo Indian Boys Higher Secondary School located at Vepery, Chennai. He was born with a giant right leg and an intelligent mind, so Arun topped all of his classes, Excelling at school. At the teenage in his 11th standard, Arun still fighting all the odds found a close friend of his family doctor interested in helping him. She sponsored his trip to the US, followed by medical treatment at Boston's Children Hospital. Arun was investigated by 2 senior doctors and more than 25 interns from Harvard Medical School. The Doctor’s came out with only solution Arun despised. It was to amputate his leg. Arun denied to give up on his leg again. He was born with it and accepted it; Arun loved his giant leg.
While in U.S another tyranny hit Arun’s family. His Mother died from cancer. Arun wasn’t told and didn’t get to see his mother. His father had to leave and Arun started his further education in U.S.
Grieving for his mother in U.S Arun was hit by one more storm raging within his mind. He started living alone, fighting his mind and talking to himself. Arun at the age of 16 started showing the symptoms of severe OCD which could be as a result of post traumatic stress. This made Arun leave U.S And come back to India, where his U.S Education wasn’t accepted and he had to redo his 1 year education for further studies in India. Suffering from OCD and fighting his mind, Arun managed to score 90% in his 12th standard results. Arun committed to his studies took admission in an engineering college 700 kms away from home with a major in computer sciences.
After finishing College Arun took four different jobs in designing field over a period of 2 years, but none could keep him from reaching his goal. Arun seems to fit into none of these companies because he always had big dreams and none were going to come true if he stayed there. The Passion within him was still alive after all robust storms.
Arun’s zeal for perfection drove him to establish a web design firm what today is known as kenriche. In spite of experiencing life's harshness Arun kept his hope alive and began developing the company to deliver Services and Products beyond perfection.Want to contribute a big amount but Cant? : No worries. Even Rs101 / $6 would go a long way in helping Arun get his life back on track.
