All this while, I was interviewing him, questioning him,
and then I realized that I was getting very superficial information, or just answers to my questions.
But I really needed to dig deeper to get a new perspective.
So I thought, well, let's observe him in his daily tasks, while he's eating, while he's watching TV.
And then, when I was actually observing him walking to his dining table, it struck me,
this man who finds it so difficult to walk on flat land, how does he climb a staircase?
Because in India we do not have a fancy rail that takes you up a staircase like in the developed countries.
One actually has to climb the stairs.
So he told me, "Well, let me show you how I do it." Let's take a look at what I saw.
So he took really long to reach this position,
and then all this while, I'm thinking, "Oh my God, is he really going to do it?
Is he really, really going to do it without his walker?" And then ...
And the turns, he took them so easily.
So -- shocked? Well, I was too. So this person who could not walk on flat land was suddenly a pro at climbing stairs.
On researching this, I realized that it's because it's a continuous motion.
There's this other man who also suffers from the same symptoms and uses a walker,
but the moment he's put on a cycle, all his symptoms vanish, because it is a continuous motion.
So the key for me was to translate this feeling of walking on a staircase back to flat land.
And a lot of ideas were tested and tried on him, but the one that finally worked was this one. Let's take a look.
