Myself Akarshan Bohidar (32) from Semiliguda,Koraput. By birth I am suffering from a disability “Beningn Congenital Hypotonia” (Congenital Mild Paraparesis with spinal muscle weakness).
Several helping hands have come forward with open arms after my news coverage on various platforms, without any demand from my side & with their blessings I was successfully able to meet up my immediate financial crisis. Also I was able to clear up My LLB College fees & meet up my daily medical needs to continue my treatment for hypotonia.
Now to smoothly work with my Physical disability I need to possess two prosthetics, they are:-
- Robotic Exoskeleton specifically designed for paraplegic gait rehabilitation from ekko Bionics USA Whose cost is:-Rs 1,74, 17, 600-/-(Rupees One Crore seventy four lakhs seventeen thousand and six hundred only)
- Standing mid wheel drive wheel chair from Sunrise medical Germany whose cost is:- Rs 51, 34,500-/- (Rupees Fifty One Lakh thirty four thousand and five hundred only)
With my effort it would provide a platform to help the upcoming talented creators to skillfully face the challenges smoothly on online platform & live stage. This effort shall also help to preserve the hidden folk culture of my motherland.
This fundraising platform is providing me an opportunity to seek for financial help from all over the world to successfully establish an “Audio -Video Studio & Research Institute” to create an appealing and next level platform for youths who can excel in this career with us.
Though I was born & brought up in Koraput, a tribal remote area which is highly rich in Culture, Heritage & Tradition, because of which I was fortunate enough to learn music from age 3 & was able to change a wrong definition of music in “Encyclopedia Britanica” in the year 2007.
Music is one of the most universal ways of expression of life, present everywhere in all cultures around the world. I not only enjoyed it but it has kept me alive in-spite of all bigger odds that came in my life, irrespective of my disability. My music gave me the strength to move on & prepare myself to live life to its full potential & have the control to be the “master of my own fate”.
More than 1000 successful live shows in many places all around the country from the age of 8 gave me a strong foundation. Now I am a continuing You-Tuber with my YouTube channel “Akarshan Instrumental”. I am unable to give my 100% of my potentiality due to lack of technology & funds. The present day digitalization of music wants a person to be technically well educated on his field along with his advanced equipment. My disability is not an obstacle for my quest for music. But attaining the modern technology would cost me a lot for becoming an ultimate synthesizer player & successful You-Tuber & online blogger.
My project for establishing an “Audio -Video Studio & Research Institute” would cost around a sum of Rupees 2,50,00,000-/-INR( Rupees Two Crore fifty lakhs only )in total.
My total budget requirement is: - Rs 4, 75, 52,100-/-(Rupees Four crore seventy five lakhs fifty two thousand
and one hundred only).
So today, with an earnest request I reach out to you because I have run out of all options & I need to establish my mark.
