Haryana Khap felicitates para-athlete Deepa Malik

Press Trust of India  |  Rohtak 

Top Indian para-athlete Deep Malik has been felicitated by a Khap here for her achievements at the Rio Paralympics where she had won a silver medal.

Deepa was honoured by Malik Gathwala Khap at Swami Nitya School in Rohtak.



Deepa, who won a silver in the shot put F53 event in Rio in September, is the first Indian woman para-athlete to win a medal at the Paralympics.

Calling her the pride of the community globally, the Khap elders asked her to wear her silver medal as a moment of pride.

Speaking at the felicitation ceremony, Deepa said, "Who says the rural heads are not progressive. I have been time and again encouraged and felicitated by the village khap and given a mace (gadda), a male dominated trophy. They call me apni beti (daughter) and not bahu (daughter-in-law), they call me gaaon ka sher (Lion of the village).... I see so much acceptance."

Deepa has her own 'Wheeling Happiness' which works towards promoting sports for differently-abled individuals.
