Disability rights advocate, former Miss India Wheelchair runner up, motivational speaker and published writer Virali Modi speaks about how she escaped from the jaws of death and miraculously came back to life. She encourages everyone to not let external circumstances rule one’s life decisions and assures everyone that anything is possible with the help of a focus and determined mind. Ten years ago, life almost came to a standstill for Virali Modi after an accident. She was lying on her presumed deathbed on her birthday; she was in a coma, living off a ventilator. Absolutely no one thought she would trick death and come back to life so beautifully.
Coming out of coma, she won second place in The Miss Wheelchair India pageant in 2014. She started writing about her life’s experiences on Quora and earned 80,000 followers that are getting inspired and motivated by her writing. She is a motivational speaker. She is working to bring awareness about disability and woman rights through her writing.
