What’s so special about Naga Naresh Karutura?

From an article titled Guy who got into Google on the IITM Alumni website:

Naga Naresh Karutura has just passed out of IIT Madras in Computer Science and has joined Google in Bangalore.

You may ask, what’s so special about this 21-year-old when there are hundreds of students passing out from various IITs and joining big companies like Google?

Naresh is special. His parents are illiterate. He has no legs and moves around in his powered wheel chair. (In fact, when I could not locate his lab, he told me over the mobile phone, ‘I will come and pick you up’. And in no time, he was there to guide me)

Inspirational piece which is worth reading and sharing. Here’s the link again.

[Hat tip to P. Kumar, who’ll probably be one of two friends to get the reference.]
