Paralysed, but not in spirit

Akhila Ranganna

Former West Indies fast bowler Winston Davis, paralysed after a freak accident, tells Clayton Murzello in the Mid-Day how spiritual awakening has given him a new lease of life.

"Let's put it like this - you can do a lot of things with a computer, you can discover new use of it and that is what happens with me. I have met people similar to me and they are still carrying their burden. They have no peace. Within a short span of time, God has given me peace. I don't lie on my bed thinking what I have lost ¦ I never did that. When I wake up, I cannot wait to get out of bed. Some people stay in bed. I want to be able to do things. God has given me the chance to do that."
