Not giving up: Harsvin with his mother K. Santhi and father Danapalan at the press conference.

IPOH: Eleven-year-old D. Harsvin Kumar’s ambition was to be a pilot, but an accident in November 2011 left him with a spinal injury resulting in paralysis from the chest down. It could possibly ground him for life.

His father S. Danapalan, 47, however, has not given up on his son’s dream and hopes to send him to an ayurdevic hospital in Kerala to seek treatment next month.
