“I started living by myself for the first time when I got a job in Hyderabad. I loved it and the job was great, but I decided to celebrate my 25th birthday with my family at home in Faridabad. The decision was simple enough. I packed my bags and hopped on a train. There was half an hour left to the journey and the excitement of being home with my parents was building up when two men entered the coach. In their failed effort to grab the bag fastened to me, I was dragged towards the door. I lost balance and fell down on the track.

At the hospital, I heard doctors say they could not save my leg. It had gotten shattered when it got caught on the door. At 1 AM on my birthday, I signed an amputation consent form. In the days that followed, I worked hard to recover, both physically and emotionally. It was one of those days when something a doctor said changed my life. “You can walk, but you will never run,” he told me. I was never an athlete but now I had to try.

I spent my childhood on the lanes of Faridabad, the child of parents who ironed clothes on a cart, uneducated but deeply committed to providing the best for their children. Today, I am called India’s first woman blade runner.”
