They say that an athlete should be aware of all his senses before approaching his target or target. But not everyone can use them all and accidents sometimes leave problems for which there is no solution.
On the other hand, today’s two young geniuses have not only overcome their physical challenges but, thanks to their guts and determination, have outperformed most other young people of their age in terms of achievements. The inspiring stories of Simran Sharma and Abdul Quadir Indori can be found here.
Hit the bull’s eye with Simran Singh –
Simran Singh is only 13 years old, but she has already set her sights on her ambitions. Simran is a force of nature. She started her shooting career at the age of nine, won bronze and gold medals in swimming, danced with Shiamak Davar’s company and gained recognition, and played piano and ukulele.
Her achievements are enough to make her forget that she had major spinal surgery when she was only nine months old. Even after the surgery, she lost feeling under her neck, but she managed to recover her waistline after much physical therapy, rehabilitation and stem cell treatment, along with her fighting spirit.
After he started shooting during a school camp, Simran still impresses everyone. She won the bronze medal in her first-ever National Para Shooting Championship (March 2021) in the 10 meters under SH-1 category. She also won 1 gold and 2 silver in the Zonal Para Shooting competition in 2021 and was also selected to participate in the World Shooting Para Sport World Cup in Peru (June 2021) and the WSPS World Cup in Serbia (July 2021). However, she was unable to attend due to financial difficulties and uncertainty over the Covid-19 situation.
Still, she counts professional marksman Anjali Bhagwat among her fans, who claims to be inspired by Simran’s energy and drive. Not only Bhagwat, judge Pullela Gopichand is a big fan of Simran’s achievements and has high hopes for her next goal: winning the gold medal for India at the Paris Paralympic Games in 2024.
Just swimming with Abdul Quadir Indori –
Abdul Indori, a 14-year-old resident of Ratlam, lost both hands in an electric shock accident in 2014. A year later he started swimming and within three months he won his first medal, taking the gold and silver medal at his first National Para Swimming Championship which was held in Belgaum in 2015.
Since then, in 2016 and 2017, he has won 2 gold and 1 silver medal each at the National Para Swimming Championships. Last year he won 3 gold medals at the National Para Swimming Championship in Bangalore for each of the three swimming styles he is a pro at.
Abdul’s mischievous streak is also fully featured in the episode with his aunts and sister revealing all his jokes, which is arguably the happiest and most satisfying moment of the episode. He also leaves the audience, along with judge Gopichand, awed by his goal of winning the Para Olympic Gold Medal for India in the near future.
While it’s great to cheer on young geniuses for their skills and talent, it gives a different kind of high to see child prodigies like Simran and Abdul excel at shooting and swimming respectively. It also forces us to consider our privilege and come away inspired to do something with our whole body.
The undying spirit and drive to succeed in today’s episode of BYJUS Young Genius is one of the biggest takeaways and the best reason to watch the entire video. That is until we come back to tell you more about the young prodigies in next week’s episode on #BYJUSYoungGeniusSeason2.
