Bandenawaz Badshah Nadaf was born into a poor family in Mumbai on 5th February 1987. However, his parents were devastated to discover that Bandenawaz had come into this world with a birth defect of both his upper limbs i.e. Right hand with a very short stump and the absence of a left hand. Bandenawaz's father was a driver and his 2 brothers are labourers. His mother is a housewife. However, despite their difficulties, Bandenwaz's family helped him to learn to write with his foot. He attended a Hindi medium school upto Class VIII and was a very good student.  Slowly his love for art blossomed and he began to paint with his foot. Soon he became an accomplished foot painter and won prizes in several Inter-school and national level art competitions in India. Bandenawaz is totally independent in the activities of daily living like eating, dressing, shaving, and bathing, etc. He is also a very good cook and can play the tambourine. He is an excellent swimmer and won 2 gold medals in the National Swimming Championship for the Disabled. He is also a Yellow Belt in Karate and also learned to drive four wheeler on his own. Overall, other than being an accomplished foot painter, he is a wonderful sportsman who has participated in the Mini Olympics for the Disabled and won several prizes in various disciplines.
