Amputee swimmer blames Govt for unrealised goals

Prasanta Karmkar is a champion. He lost his right arm in an accident, but he never let his disability get in the way of winning several medals for India in swimming contests. He even won several gold medals at the recent International Wheelchair and Amputee Sports Federation games, but in a country obsessed with cricket, achievements like his have largely gone unnoticed. Prasanta now says he may have to quit altogether, thanks to complete negligence by the Government.
