A 31-year-old man from Pune with cerebral palsy has been appointed as a judge. He fought against all odds to become charge as the civil judge of junior division in February next year.

Nikhil Prasad Baji passed the judicial magistrate first class and civil judge junior division exam this month. Speaking to ANI, Mr Baji said, ”I always accepted the way I am. Even in childhood when children used to play cricket I also felt like playing. But due to my disability, I could not. So I decided to become an Umpire and decided that if I can’t play cricket then I can become a good Umpire.”

“I liked political science from the beginning. Hence, I had in mind from beginning only that I should do law and I did practice in court to understand the court functioning,” he added.

Mr baji cited the example of renowned physicist Stephen Hawking, who too suffered from cerebral palsy and has been an inspiration for Mr Baji.
