Success Story – Arunima Sinha

mt everest 3

It is the story of valour and fighting back for life. It is the story that tells us that nothing can stop us but we ourselves. It is the story of an amputated girl Arunima Sinha from India, who scaled the mightiest and most gigantic Mount Everest to become the First Female Amputee to scale Mount Everest.

Two years back tragedy struck this woman , who was a volley ball player at that time. She was thrown out of a moving train by thieves for resisting to chain snatching. One of her legs was crushed by a moving by train. In order to save her life doctors had no choice but to amputate her leg.

“At that time everyone was worried for me. I then realised I had to do something in my life so that people stop looking at me with pity”, Sinha told Indian TV before leaving for the climb.

So, this is really what is required to succeed in life “A never giving up attitude”. However , big the hurdles may come in life the spirit to fight back should never end.

Sinha’s climb was sponsored by The Tata Steel Adventure Foundation and she was trained and guided by Sherpa’s Asian Trekking company in 2012.

Tom Whittaker, a British mountaineer, was the first person with disability(amputated foot) to scale Mount Everest in 1998.

4. Increased vitality:
Children who take cold water bath are less lethargic .Improved blood circulation helps them remain active.

It is not easy to take cold water bath in the morning. If children are encouraged to take cold water bath in the morning it helps to make them mentally strong as it requires a lot of will power to go through any experience that is not pleasant. Remember early sages, the first thing they used to do in the morning was to take a dip in cold river water. It helped them to elevate spiritually. In tough trainings like military training they don’t allow warm or hot water bath in view of making trainees mentally strong.
