BEATING THE ODDS
Recovering from paralysis below the neck, Harmehar Kaur Grewal never let the physical disability take a toll on her studies. Exhibiting rare grit, she scored 91.4% in Std XII to secure the second spot in humanities at the Army Pubic School, Khadki.
As per school officials, Harmehar's positive and never-give-up attitude helped her tide over the difficult times. “I was just 12 years of age when I met with an accident, resulting in paralysis below the neck. Even doctors felt that I will never recover and there had been people who told me to discontinue school then. But, I never gave up. With support from my parents and school authorities, I continued with my studies and the results are here,“ Harmehar said, adding that she had a tough time managing studies with her physiotherapy sessions.
