Mr. Selvaraj comes from a very low income family, involved in illicit liquor selling. He is unmarried and was abandoned when he became paralyzed. He had no hope for his next meal as he was left all alone. He was found begging in the streets of North Chennai by a volunteer who brought him to Vuyiroli. After preliminary counseling he was admitted in July 2001 and was provided with shelter, food, clothes and medical treatment. He has been given physiotherapy and speech therapy. His condition is very stable now and is able to make paper covers using his left hand. He is a very joyful person and joins in the worship services regularly.
