Arpita Roy clearly remembers the night of April 22, 2006. She was sitting behind a friend on a bicycle, making a list of things she wanted to buy in Kolkata. The City of Joy is only 30 kilometers away from his home in Barrackpore, and his life has changed drastically in an instant.

The bicycle collided with a huge truck, the truck ran over her legs and she fell to the ground, leaving a 20-year-old amputee with both legs. What he heard next were screams and a large group of people passed over his head.

Although she was wide awake, it wasn't until someone pointed to her blood-soaked leg that Alpita was able to determine the exact location of the excruciating pain. She repelled the sick thoughts and tried to move. Fortunately, there is a hospital across the street where the accident occurred.

Arpita said, “The effort to stand on a prosthesis is always aggravated by phantom pain. Phantom pain comes from a part of the body, not there anymore. It feels like someone is cutting.

Many people do not know what to ask or convey the correct information. At first, I hesitated and kept my life a secret. I must not get rid of fear and insecurity. The hardest thing not to do," he said.
