Seethal Devi faced several difficult obstacles on his way to achievement. Her unwavering resolve, meanwhile, is a striking example of the power of the human will.

Notably, Ms. Devi was born with phocomelia syndrome, an uncommon congenital condition that prevented her limbs from growing fully. Ms. Devi, who was raised by the Indian Army and found at a military base in a remote area of Kishtwar, upset Singapore’s Alim Nur Syahidah 144-142 in the gold medal match in July to become the first armless woman to earn a medal at the Para World Archery Championships.

Numerous people on the internet complimented and commended Mr. Mahindra for his kindness. 

One user wrote, ”Thank you very much for this @anandmahindra ji. When we first got her across to Bengaluru, after a day of sightseeing, Sheetal had put her feet on my parked car’s steering wheel and said ‘ek din mein bhi gaadi chalaoongi’ Dreams do come true. We knew she would do it.”
