This is an inspirational story of Abha KhetarpaL, a teacher by profession, who is fighting polio since last 39 years. Years back there was little polio awareness, due to which Abha was not vaccinated against polio. Polio germs infected her at the age of 2.5 years while she was travelling in a train. To make her lower body stronger, Abha underwent four surgeries. She didn’t get the desired results, but she always kept her spirits high. To live a healthy life, Abha practices yoga, meditation and also takes recourse of physical therapies. It is quite inspiring that despite her physical disabilitiy, she wants to work for people like herself. With her courage and strength, she has become a role model for all polio-struck people.
