Divyanshu lost his eyesight to glaucoma at the age of 19. A severe bout of tuberculosis almost had doctors declare him dead. As he was working to get his life back on track, he got a earful of free advice from well wishers and rehabilitation counsellors:
“Your life is over.”
“You can only stay at home now.”
“Since you are blind, you can only make cane furniture or chalk now.”
Divyanshu soon found that his blindness or health struggles were not a problem. It was people’s attitudinal barriers and their stereotypes that tried to tell him that he could no longer do what he wanted to do—learn computers or make a career in IT, study psychology and pursue his Masters in Cognitive Neuroscience, or follow his love for adventure and the outdoors.
He did not allow the world to decide what he could or could not do. Fast forward to today, Divyanshu continues to shatter stereotypes and prejudices, turning every adversity into an opportunity to emerge as one of India’s most successful people in the fields of IT, diversity and inclusion, and behavioural facilitation. His love for sport and the outdoors also led him to found the Adventures Beyond Barriers Foundation (ABBF)—a non-profit that promotes inclusion through adventure sports for people with and without disability.
Needless to say, such a power-packed individual has attracted quite some attention. Divyanshu has been covered extensively by some of the world’s most popular media—BBC, The Times of India, The Hindu, CNNIBN, CNBC, Star Plus, Condé Nast Traveller, Huffington Post and more.

• How can you mould your beliefs to bring out the best in yourself?
