It is time we broadened our perspectives and embraced the sportspersons who defy all odds to champion their passion, writes Ananya Das.
There are athletes who are able-bodied and have everything going their favourable way; for them, the world is their oyster and nothing seems to hinder their spirit. And then, there are players who aren't all that lucky. They've gone through hell and back to achieve what they set out to get and through all the chaos that they've been served, they come out victorious.
These are athletes with limited abilities which range from vision impairment, impaired muscle power like paraplegia, quadriplegia, leg-length difference, short stature and even intellectual disabilities. They're just like your regular athlete; but, the only difference is that they have had it harder than anyone else in the sports circuit.
