Guddu is a multi-talented all rounder who gets around on his skateboard. An amputee since the age of 10, Guddu is no stranger to the realities and hardships of living with a disability in India. Guddu joined the Soulcial Trust team to help empower others who, like him, do not have the use of certain limbs and therefore do not receive the same consideration in society as abled-bodied people. Guddu has previously worked in the clothing industry, designing and sewing clothes. He has also worked as a tour guide for Indian and International visitors. Alongside his work at Soulcial Trust, Guddu works at a guesthouse and runs a home and day care centre for spinal cord injured people in Delhi (ESCIP House).
