Personal Life

Amir has revealed that his family supported him a lot. His father Bashir had his own bandsaw where he used to make furniture items and bats. His parents used to work outside while his grandparents took care of him.

Early Life

Amir Lone Hussain lost his arms in an accident when he was just 8-years old. His family had a sawmill where he was helping his family friend to saw wood during which his jacket got caught in the machine and the machine sucked him in immediately. Before he could realise, both of his arms were cut off and he got thrown into some ditch.


It was difficult to take him to hospital as villagers didn’t own cars. Few of those who had cars refused to help. One of the girls from the village then visited the nearby army camp and informed them about his injury. The army, after learning about the incident offered to help him.

During those days, the situation in Kashmir was distressing, despite that, the army took him to the hospital in Srinagar. The army somehow managed to stop a citizen’s car and asked them to give lift. Amir was accompanied by his aunts.

Amir spent three days in the hospital. Many people who would visit him in the hospital used to say to his parents that he is as good as dead and they should poison him. However, his grandma became a pillar of his life and said that she will take care of him as long as she is alive. Amir’s father sold the family land to pay for medical expenses.

When Amir’s grandmother learned about this situation, she said that he doesn’t have to do anything and just have to sit through the class and learn.
