About Shridhar

Hi people this is Shridhar Adhikari. My friend's brother Rishabh Thakkar is deaf and dumb by birth.He lives in a small town Patan. Rishabh comes from poor family. In his family his dad does the small business of potato wafers which he makes everyday and sell everyday for daily living which is lowest and Risabh has two brothers one elder and one younger. His elder brother left studies after 10th as it was not possible for his father to educate every child. Rishabh has also left studies after 10th in a special school for deaf and dumb as it was also not possible for his father to educate him either.

Rishabh tells his father he doesn't need treatment because he knows that one day his  weakness will become his  greatest strenght, and that one day he will rise on his own. He doesn't want to be a burden on his family as he knows their condition.

I came in contact with his brother while he was working at my garment shop. One day Rishabh’s brother said me “Sir my brother is a dancer." I told him that I would like to see him. We went to his school and it was at that time that I came to know that he is deaf and dumb. I asked his brother how he is able to dance as he is deaf and dumb. He told me just by vibration of the beats he catches the songs steps and I was amazed at the same time I was feeling sad for him, but it has been said if God takes something from you in replace he gives a gift which not comparable to normal human being.

With hard work and practice from one Choreographer he was able to give the audition at Dance India Dance. Rishabh is a fabulous dancer even though he is deaf and dumb. The way he catches the steps is simply incredible and he is so perfect - he never misses a step! You can check out his video which I have uploaded here. Your eyes will be in surprise. So lets support him for training in Ahmedabad to Mumbai. Mumbai to Delhi and the last resort will be USA.

There are many dance academies as Deaf dancer kiz, and Dove Dance Academy in USA which will help him to complete his dream of becoming best hip hop dancer. So people let complete his dream together.
