Celebrating Women’s Day

Shall I say “Happy Women’s Day” ?

So many people speak about Women’s day. Parties, shopping, discounts, dinners… all inviting us.
Is that all?

The beautiful expressive Indian classical dancer.

Today I want to mention about a girl Arunima Sinha who was a volleyball player at national level. When travelling in a night train, she resisted some chain snatchers who had boarded the train at the dead of night. While others obliged, she refused to give her gold chain to them.
Result?
She was pushed out of the running train. She fell on the railway tracks and couldn’t move. Another train on a parallel track crushed her leg below the knee. Nobody came to her rescue till next morning when some villagers saw her. She had lost so much blood that for sometime she lost her vision as well. As a result her leg had to be amputated below the knee.

Then she decided to fight back… she stood up and within two years she became the first female amputee to climb Mount Everest!!

    True women’s day would be when we will not need to dedicate one day to Women…

    The story of Arunima is really inspiring…

    Prasad,
    Yes, absolutely right!

    I’ve cut short this story to the minimum… it was terrible to know how she survived that night when trains from both directions crossed over several times and she lied in between those 2 tracks.
