Sujata Burla’s life was shattered when on a pilgrimage to Shirdi, she met with a serious accident in the year 2001.
She survived but life dealt a cruel blow when the doctors and physiotherapists treating her told her she could not walk for the rest of her life. The accident had turned her into a paraplegic. It meant Sujata was immobile below the shoulders at the early age 21.
Before the accident, Sujata had many friends but they all ran away after the accident. They were all false friends who only used to go where there would be money, success and happiness. She felt alone and depressed.
In another tragedy, her father expired in March 2004. Not one to be easily cowed down by her circumstances, she wanted to be independent financially, physically and mentally.
She soon realized that she needed to be financially independent first. She started working with her sister, who is a fashion designer, and then started a textile workshop on her own but the workers took advantage of her physical disability and she lost money.
Sujata realized that if at all she had to succeed in life she would have to do something for which she did not have to depend on anybody
Then she hit upon the idea of working in the stock market. She learnt typing and working on a computer and laptop. She spent another year learning the nitty gritty of stock market operations.
Now she trades like a pro and earns anywhere between Rs 200,000 and Rs 250,000 every month
Financial independence is what she strove for and that is exactly what she has got through sheer determination and discipline.
This shows that human will power and determination has no limit the only thing required is passion, persistence and hard work.
