Disabled student becomes most flexible handicapped yoga champ

JNU student Tejasvi Sharma, who is 69 per cent disabled, has been recognised as the “most flexible handicapped yoga champion” after performing the hardest of asanas and postures that involve difficult contortions. The record by Tejaswi, who has represented the country in various international yoga championships, has been acknowledged by the ‘Unique World Records’, a global record book of origin, whose first edition was published in 2009.

21-year-old Tejasvi, who hails from and is a final year student of German Studies at Jawaharlal Nehru University, was diagnosed with polio at the age of nine years with both legs afflicted.
