Blind but not Beaten
He is not a celebrity in the sense the term celebrity is commonly used but if you consider the fact that he runs one of the most successful workshops in Lasbela, Pakistan while being totally blind , you would understand what makes him so special.
Asif Patel was born blind but he loves putting things together. He is self taught and experimented on his father's cars and then his friends and neighbours who were always amazed by his ability to figure out why the vehicles are under performing just by listening to the engine sounds.
His team is currently exploring hybrid cars and working on Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) systems. This might not be a big deal in developed countries where special people are given lots of privileges and help but in a country like Pakistan where odds are stacked against him, his each achievement is nothing short of a miracle.
