Boy with physical disability finds place in State basketball team
HEARING IMPAIRED IN STATE BASKETBALL TEAM.
Neither poverty nor physical disability could prevent this 15-year-old boy from excelling at a game that he loves from an early age.
Vishnu Ram, a student of N.S.V.V. Higher Secondary School, Pattiveeranpatti near Batlagundu, who cannot speak or hear, will play for Tamil Nadu in the Under-17 basketball tournament to be held in Chattisgarh on December 17.
Vishnu can understand only sign language.
He started playing basketball as a small boy. Having watched his deftness and flair for the game, his father Ramesh Babu, a daily wager, found a trainer to sharpen his skills.
“Vishnu had also been selected for the Under-13 State team. He had played for Tamil Nadu in tournaments held in Coimbatore and Chattisgarh.
Later, he was part of the Under-14 State team as well,” Mr.Babu says proudly.
