grit, courage, determination, perseverance. Am sure, her story which was aired in 7th episode of HRX Heroes with Hrithik Roshan is going to leave
you wondering, can anyone have so much of mental strength? You might have seen
her in “India’s got talent” and the latest season of “Jhalak Dikhla Jaa”. I had
closely followed her when she was taking part in these shows, and I was aware
of her story, but still, I got goosebumps while watching her story unveiled by
Hrithik Roshan, narrated by her as well as her family and its perfect dramatic reconstruction
left me with tears in my eyes.
legged Dancer’ who has definitely become a great source of inspiration to
many with her strong will, positive thinking and determination. She is
extremely talented as a dancer, and nothing stops her from trying various
contemporary dance forms.
there is a will, there is a way. How appropriately it fits Subhreet’s story.
Her effort was to win her own self, beat her pain and grow beyond her physical
early in life and she was brought up by her mother. She was very fond of dance
from childhood itself. Though she wanted to be part of entertainment world, be
a dancer and wear beautiful clothes, she decided to pursue nursing profession on
her mother Charanjeet Kaur’s insistence. Subhreet took admission in a nursing
forever. Her friend was driving a scooty and she was sitting behind her.
Subhreet asked her friend not to drive fast, but she continued driving fast.
Unfortunately, she lost her balance and both of them were thrown off from the
scooty. Subhreet’s leg was dragged under scooty’s wheel. She could feel lot of
pain. Her world turned upside down on this day.

pleading the doctors to treat her, they just put her leg in a brace and left
her. They did not even try to treat her fracture.
malformation, an abnormal connection between arteries and veins. Charanjeet was
constantly telling the doctor about this condition of Subhreet. Eventually, Subhreet
underwent operation, but the doctor cut a vital vein because of which
uncontrollable bleeding started. Although, the surgical team could manage to
stop the bleeding, but they cut short the operation. When she opened her eyes,
she was unable to feel any sensation in her leg. On being asked, doctor
responded that she would feel sensation in a few days. Surgeon’s incompetence meant
that Subhreet now had to wait for the veins in her leg to heal before they
could even attempt to fix her fracture for the second time.

worsening with each passing day. She had lost all the sensation in her leg. She
weighed hardly 35 Kgs. She was bed-ridden for more than two months. Mother and
sister took care of her.
of, it really shook me from within. Subhreet narrated with choked throat and
teary eyes that one morning when she got up, she found small ants on her bed and
when she looked at her leg, she found that the ants were trying to eat her leg.
Probably the ants were on her leg for the whole night, but she did not know due
to lack of sensation. That is when she realized that her leg is dead and that
is why her leg became prey to the ants. She was inconsolable and cried a lot along
with her mother and sister. Subhreet was devastated but she took one of the
toughest decisions of amputating her leg. This was the only option left to get
her life back. She underwent operation.
succumb to self-pity or depression, but decided to pursue her passion of
dancing. She gave herself this impossible challenge to dance on one leg. She
trained herself at home, worked hard to maintain balance with one leg, worked
to enhance her physical stamina. For formal training, when she decided to join
a dance academy, finance was a concern, but her mother sold her earing to
sponsor her dream. Initially, the dance academy rejected her due to her
physical disability, she expressed her anger to one of them: ‘You will not
choose me, rather I will choose you whether I want to learn from you or not and
I decide not to choose you”. Finally Subhreet got an opportunity to train with
dance: “I always knew that she was a good dancer, but I had forced her into
studies. After the surgery, when she told me that she wanted to dance in TV shows, I
was apprehensive but I supported her dream”.
Talent. She got standing ovation from the judges as well as the audience. Her
appearance on this show made her a celebrity overnight. The whole country was
awestruck with her performance. Her life changed for better. Later on she
participated in Jhalak Dikhla Jaa. Now, she is happy pursuing her passion of
pursuing dance as a career.

so far in this show. And for this, indeed the whole cast is responsible. Sakshi
raina as Subhreet Kaur has so convincingly portrayed her. Rather the whole cast
has complemented well their respective characters.
Hero Subhreet Kaur Ghumman would definitely leave you awestruck, inspired and certainly
give you goosebumps. A one-legged dancer, victim of medical negligence, was not
ready to succumb to the destiny of carrying a lifeless leg, but decided to get
it amputated. She chose not to fall prey to self-pity but to pursue her
childhood passion to be a dancer. You might have seen her on ‘India’s Got
Talent’ and ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’, still, please read this post to know her story
through Hrithik Roshan and also through her own words. She believes that one
could only be handicapped in their mind not physically; you are handicap, if
you have everything and you are doing nothing. I am choked with emotions while
saluting this great lady Subhreet Kaur Ghumman whose story you can catch up in the
repeat telecast of HRX Heroes with Hrithik Roshan on Discovery Channel on 28th
November, 2015 at 8PM.
