Akshat Rawat, a resident of Delhi, lost both his hands after a bad accident, but despite this, what no one could take away from him was his hope for life and hope to keep moving forward.
Talking to the media, Akshat has told that at the age of 7, he had burnt his hands in an accident that happened to him, after which both his hands had to be amputated on the suggestion of doctors due to the spread of a disease named gangrene. Otherwise, the disease could have spread throughout Akshat’s body.
Despite this accident, Akshat did not lose hope and decided to approach life in a unique way with full vigor. After this accident, Akshat’s family and his friends stood by him as a solid support.
Finding a new way through art
During this time Akshat was seeking a special identity for himself and for this he chose art as a medium. Although Akshat was inclined towards art since childhood, but this time the circumstances were a little different, although Akshat had made up his mind to adopt these circumstances in their normal form. Akshat, who is fond of painting, takes the help of a thumb supporter for this, although the rest of the process remains normal during this time.
Currently, Akshat has over a thousand paintings to his credit, he usually focuses on acrylic painting and contemporary art. Along with his artworks, Akshat has also participated in many exhibitions and has been issued a certificate by the Government of India.
Apart from painting, Akshat loves to travel solo. He is also fond of paragliding and cycling. According to Akshat, who has traveled to all parts of India, traveling in this way is not that easy, but he travels because he loves these experiences. During solo travel, Akshat keeps sharing those experiences on social media by capturing them in videos.
