Some people inspire us, Some people inspire us a little more, and some people inspire us that much that we go in every depth to know about them. The same is the case with Padma Shri Mrs.Deepa Malik. I read about her, researched about her for many days, and came to know a lot of plucks about her life, which made me think. WOW! COURAGE HO TO AISA!

Mrs. Deepa Malik is a beauty on wheelchair. "No Medical issue can stop me feeling beautiful." gorgeous Deepa quotes.

At a very tender age, Deepa was diagnosed with Spinal Cord Tumor. The courageous young girl underwent surgery, not only survived with it but shine brightly with the participation in various beauty contests.

After a few years again, she felt the re-occurrence of the problem. But she didn't take a halt. The judges of the Beauty contest could make it out that Deepa was dragging her leg on the stage. But her beautiful answer, "No medical problem can stop me to feel beautiful." touches everybody's heart and helped her won the contest.

At the age of 30, she was diagnosed with a spinal cord tumor of three times density than earlier. Underwent surgery again. The series of surgeries led to full damage to the spinal cord. Her lower body got paralyzed with 183 stitches on the shoulders, she had been on a wheelchair since then.

With these many physical issues, Courageous Deepa Malik didn't keep on blaming her destiny of a series of wrong happened with her. She challenged life in a beautiful manner. Deepa quoted these challenges audaciously-

"Jindagi, tumne yudh bana kar di to kya,

Haar maan kar hathiyaar daal dungi?

Mein to virangana hun,

datt kar jeet ko sang kar lungi."

"Life, you made my life a war, so what Will I give up? I am an Adventuress,

I will win the victory."
