Recently Kun Banega Crorepati was celebrating International Day of the girl child on October 11, where the co-host called two of the special guest namely, Manasi Joshi and Deepa Malik. Both of them are really very inspiring if you know their story. Also, Big B has celebrated his birthday on 11th October and has appraised both of them for their struggle and hard work they have put in to get there they wanted from the beginning. Manasi Joshi is a Para-badminton athlete and Deepa Malik is Paralympic medallist. Let’s know more about them.
Manasi won Rs. 25 lakh on the show KBC
Did you know that Manasi has won Rs. 25 lakh on the KBC? But her this achievement did not overshadow her hard work and determination that she followed to become a pro in Badminton like her father as she started playing badminton with her father at the age of 6. Over a month ago, Manasi had won the Para-Badminton World Championships which was a day before when PV Sindhu won the World Championships but still she did not get much attention among the people which Manasi has got.
Manasi’s real life is full of struggle
Manasi’s real life is filled with lots of struggle. Fighting all odds, she managed to win the gold. Though she doesn’t have her left leg as she lost that in a truck accident. But she wasn’t disheartened even after happening this. She continued with her passion for Badminton and started rigorous training to become well trained. She used to practice and play along with a prosthetic leg. In 2014, she won a silver medal in her first national-level tournament. While in 2015, she has won gold and all because of her struggle and hard work.
Manasi is the epitome of inspiration to each one of us
Despite facing so many hardships in her life, she managed to struggle and achieved all that she always wanted. We all could imagine that playing with one natural leg is not easy at all. We must say athletes like her should be encouraged and praised for what they have achieved from her struggle. She should also be given equal importance like everyone gave to PV Sindhu as she also deserves to be in the limelight.
