Tanu Kumari lost her hands 7 years ago. She was playing at the terrace when she accidentally touched live wires due to which she lost her hands. The family faced a lot of problems but the girl started learning how to do her daily chores with her legs. She also started learning how to write using one's toes.

Her achievements

The class X girl is fond of participating in sports and painting activities. She has also won accolades in painting competitions organised for specially-abled children. She doesn't like to skip school and excels in studies as well. She is quite determined to complete her education and hopes to become a teacher one day, her parents said.

The challenges

Certain tasks like eating, bathing and changing clothes cannot be done by Tanu alone. Her mother assists her for the same. She comes from a humble background and had to be shifted from private school to government school. The parents are hoping that the government will provide necessary aid owing to her academic achievements.

Her teachers and classmates find her very inspiring and dauntless. One of her teachers told ANI that she was astonished seeing her for the first time. She praised her saying that she never misses school and is highly aspirational.

Another such girl was in news last year for taking up the challenge of stitching face masks for students using just one hand to operate her sewing machine. Sindhuri does not have the part below her left-hand elbow since birth but managed to make 15 masks and distributed them among the students who appeared for School Leaving Certificate (SSLC) exams.
