Hari gave an excellent talk accompanied with full photographic slides showing all parts of his story very clearly. All the students were totally engaged with what Hari was explaining and telling them about his life and injury. The students had very thoughtful questions. Student response – ‘Thank you so much I thought that it was very inspirational and is a good message for people my age’. Teacher response – ‘That was a totally inspirational talk and very important for our students to be able to see the photos. This will have a very strong effect on them’. ‘You are an inspiration Hari’
