‘Padma Shri’ Deepa Malik’s story is one of courage & inspiration. She is the first Indian woman to win a medal in Paralympic Games.
Deepa is currently the world number one in the F-53 category. She has won accolades for her participation in various adventure sports. She won a Silver medal at the 2016 Summer Paralympics in the shot put.
Deepa is also an Arjuna awardee (2012) before receiving the prestigious Padma Shri award in 2017. She is the only Indian woman to win medals in 3 consecutive Asian Para Games (2010, 2014, 2018). She has won 58 national & 23 International medals across all disciplines to date.
Deepa Malik was the first person ever to receive a license for invalid (modified) rally vehicle a case she consistently pursued for 19 months in Maharashtra.
It’s an honor to host her on our podcast in this special “International Women’s Day” 2020 episode.
Please do listen to her & be inspired. There is no bigger strength than human spirit. There’s nothing we cant achieve if we are really determined. Wheelchairs can become wings if you are determined.
Big salute to Deepa Malik from our initiative!
