From Humble Beginnings to Global Philanthropy: The Inspiring Journey of Kamlesh Patel

Kamlesh Patel is an inspiring physically handicapped dancer whose dedication and passion for dance have inspired many. Born and raised in Baroda, India – at five he fell ill due to receiving the wrong injection which caused nerve damage that paralyzed both legs – it serves as an inspiration. Despite facing challenges and discrimination from others, Kamlesh remained determined to pursue his passion for dance.

Kamlesh completed his graduation in commerce but was always interested in dance. He prayed to Lord Ganesha for a way to dance without his feet and was miraculously able to put both his legs around his neck and balance himself on his hands. This was the beginning of his dance career.

He joined dance classes and impressed his teacher with his movements. Soon after, he started getting offers from event management companies for performances in small towns and big cities. His parents also started supporting his passion for dance.

Kamlesh’s big break came when he auditioned for Zee TV’s Dance India Dance show and was selected despite dancing on his hands instead of his feet. Though he was ultimately eliminated early, Mithun Chakraborty gave him a standing ovation and salute for his performance.

Kamlesh has performed over 1,000 performances both within India and overseas, appearing on shows such as Shabhash India, Boogie Woogie, and The Great Indian Laughter Challenge. He continues to inspire others with his passion for dance and his message that mental strength and passion can overcome physical limitations.

Overall, GIBS Student of the Year event is a fantastic celebration of excellence, showcasing the hard work and dedication of the outstanding students at GIBS. It is an event that is not to be missed, and GIBS eagerly awaits the attendance of all those who wish to participate in this exciting and memorable occasion.
