Call her a specially-abled athlete who became India’s first woman to win a Paralympic medal last week, or a 45-year-old mother of two with extraordinary grit and determination, but Deepa Malik’s life and tale is much more than all of this.
Life has thrown many hardships to this Gurgaon-based, self-confessed adrenaline junkie and Deepa has come on top every single time. She is a rider, a biker, a swimmer, a javelin and shotput thrower and a motivational speaker, but there is a catch to all of it. Deepa is confined to a wheelchair, but hasn’t let that dampen her spirit or dreams.
