Who Is Sparsh Shah?
Sparsh is a 14-year-old talented boy. He was born with an incurable disease called Osteogenesis Imperfecta. This disease makes his bones extremely fragile/brittle, due to which even a hard handshake can break his bones.
He cannot bear weight on his hands and legs, and hence cannot walk or run like other normal kids.
He had more than 130 fractures so far in 13 years of his life and God knows how much more is yet to come.
But God has gifted him with a wonderful voice and a brilliant mind. He has written several original songs and composed their music too.
Despite all the challenges, Sparsh’s spirit is unbreakable.
He aspires to sing in front of a billion people one day and inspire them that even a kid like him with such a severe medical condition/disabilities can achieve his dreams.
When Sparsh was just three years old, he started learning the keyboard and reading books.
However, as his bones kept breaking, it was difficult for him to continue to learn the keyboard and he had to stop playing.
Sparsh has gone through multiple surgeries for his brittle bones.
His parents help him write when he has fractures, or he uses voice to text technology to do his homework.

In the TEDx event video, Sparsh talks about the challenges of living with Osteogenesis Imperfecta, a condition which makes his bones extremely brittle. He also talk about his love for music, and how he turned the word ‘impossible’ into ‘I’m possible’ in four simple steps.
In his 14-minute-33-seconds-long TED Talk, he touches upon everything from overcoming the challenges of disability to helping others.
