The birth of courageous Arunima Sinha took place on 20 July 1988 in Ambedkar Nagar in Uttar Pradesh. The little girl loved playing games in school and used to participate in several events. She was a qualified player in football and volleyball. The talented athlete even became part of the national volleyball team. The professional gamer dreamed of joining a paramilitary force and so started preparing for CISF. One day Arunima Sinha was pushed out of the running Padmavati Express train on the railway track by the robbers, who were trying to snatch her bag. Unfortunately, the left leg was cut below the knee, a rod was placed in the right leg and fractured the spinal cord. Ajay Maken, the minister of State for Youth and Sports, recommended her for the CISF job along with compensation for her loss. The brave woman was not ready for sympathisers, and being an Indian Sportsperson had different plans for herself. She was determined to climb Mount Everest after recovery. Subsequently, she attended the Nehru Institute of Mountaineering and TATA Steel Adventure (TSAF) to learn the basics of mountain climbing. Eventually, with the support of her mother and brother, Arunima Sinha summited Mount Everest on the 21st of May 2013. She was honoured with the Amazing Indian Award for her efforts. The mountaineer climbed seven peaks around the world by the end of 2014, which includes Everest in Asia, Kilimanjaro in Africa, Elbrus in Europe, Kosciuszko in Australia, Aconcagua in Argentina, and Carstensz Pyramid Puncak Jaya in Indonesia. She launched her autobiography in December 2014 with the name, Born Again On The Mountains. The courageous lady received the Padma Shri and Arjuna Award from the government of India. The famous Indian sports player made the country proud with her bravery even after the disability.
