Arunima Sinha
Arunima became the first Indian woman with an artificial limb to achieve the feat. A 61-year-old American woman Rhonda Graham, a left-leg amputee, climbed Mount Everest in October 2011.

Life took a complete turn for Arunima after she was pushed out of the moving Padmawati express for resisting a chain-snatching attempt by hoodlums in 2011. She was hit by a passing train and was seriously injured. She was hospitalized with serious leg and pelvic injuries and in a bid to save her life, doctors had to amputate her left leg below the knee.

Arunima was trained by Bachendri Pal, the first Indian woman to climb Mount Everest. Arunima proved to the world that legs may help you climb mountains, but what one really needs is a heart, a brave heart
