Samir Zaveri is an extraordinary activist. He lost both is legs at the age of 16, when a local train hit him near Borivali and would have almost died, if someone wouldn’t have helped him at that time. Since then, helping every rail commuter, especially accident victims and improving the Railway system has become his mission in life. He is one of the most tireless activists working at almost every issue related with the railways—from medical care for accident victims, to compensation, to security of rail commuters. He got the Railways to install medical facilities at station through an order from the Bombay High Court. He likes to mention that he is a “dasvi pass in Gujarati medium.” Samir has witnessed the callousness of the Railways, Railway Protection Force (RPF) and even state-managed Government Railway Police (GRP) on several occasions. He even faced the wrath of the Railways and Police for his tireless, never giving up spirit and humble attitude.
