A 2009 batch IAS officer of the Chhattisgarh cadre named Awanish Sharan shared the video of the Jamui girl named Seema on social media, in which she is seen wearing an artificial limb.

Mr Sharan praised the “power of social media” in improving lives.

Seema had to lose her leg due to an accident two years ago. But she never lost heart and continued her studies despite going to school on one leg. She had to hop one kilometre every day before reaching her village school.  While covering the distance, she had to pass through uneven fields and narrow stretches.

Her school-going videos were shared by several social media groups, which caught the attention of a huge number of people from different walks of life through social media.

Sharing the video, Bihar Minister Dr Ashok Choudhary said in Hindi that he feels “proud” that the children of his state want to break hurdles. Tagging Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, he also claimed that all the necessary help had been provided to Seema.

Seema’s wholehearted effort was praised by the Jamui district administration, which presented her with a tricycle.

Actor-philanthropist Sonu Sood patted Seema’s effort. In a tweet, he said Seema will now get to school by jumping on not one but both her feet. “I am sending the ticket.” “The time has come to walk on both feet,” he added, tagging his NGO, the Sood Foundation.

Success in life depends on courage. The Jamui girl is an example and may be a role model for others to learn something from her determination.
