Who is Himani Bundela? Seven things to know about the first winner of KBC 13
- 25-year-old Himani Bundela hails from Agra and is the daughter of Vijay Singh and Saroj Bundela. She was always fond of reality shows and wanted to participate in them. Bundela started watching KBC at the age of 9 and dreamt of being a participant there.
- After an unfortunate incident, she lost her eyesight at the age of 15. However, she didn’t give up and completed her graduation in humanities and B.Ed from Dr. Shakuntala University. Defying all odds, she got selected as a Mathematics teacher in Kendriya Vidyalaya, Agra.
- She believes in making mathematics subject fun for her students. Bundela also gave a few Mental Maths tips to the actor and host of Kaun Banega Crorepati Amitabh Bachchan.
- Bundela started trying to get on to the reality show since she was a teenager. About a decade later, she finally got the opportunity. Earlier, she used to send messages for the quiz show but never received a reply. Later, the online registration procedure started. This eased her trial. Whenever she got the notification that her registration was done, she could never believe that she would be sitting on the hot seat.
- Even when she received the call from the makers, she declined it twice reportedly thinking it to be a scam. It was much later that she realised she would actually be participating in the reality show.
- Talking to a leading daily, Himani Bundela said that she wanted to start an inclusive coaching. “We have an inclusive university, but not coaching,” she said. “It will be for competitive purposes where the differently abled and normal kids will study together. We will prepare them for UPSC, CPCS,” she added.
- Bundela expressed that she aimed at setting up her father’s small business that faced tremendous loss during the lockdown. She would like to re-establish the business to secure the future of all those who depend on it.
