We all know Sudha Chandra; she is a famous dancer who has also appeared in many TV shows.

She has proved herself internationally in Bharatnatyam even though she has a prosthetic Jaipur foot. She is such an inspiring personality to all of us that she was made the brand ambassador of a Diamond Jewellery Store which was a true respect to her self-esteem and contribution to the field of art.

Another such famous person on our list is Ravindra Jain who was visually impaired since childhood. He joined the Indian music industry only to become one of  the most renowned music directors of the 1970s era. Once in the middle of his recording session, he came to know that his father has just passed away, even then he did not leave the recording session until it was finalized. He was known for his dedication and inspiring thoughts. There was such originality in his music that he gave many super hit songs to the people.

Cricket runs in every Indian's veins just like human blood. Shekhar Naik, one of the great Indian cricketer of his time, had  strong determination towards his goal. He won the T20 Blind Cricket Championship and had 32 centuries to his name. Decades ago, polio was a widespread issue in our society. Our story is dated back to a time when people were not acutely aware of polio drops for small children that is administered today to all kids who are less than 5 years.
