Since her childhood Susmita used to love ‘climbing’. Whenever she saw ‘heights’ of soil or straw, or whatever might be, she liked to climb it and look at down. She said she wanted to see from a top what there was behind that ‘height’.

Ani de Leon-Brown
Coach Ani’s sports achievements are quite numerous and “big-time”, given that she’s the first Filipina to qualify for the Ironman World Championships, but what left an impression on me was her performance at the Men’s Health All-Terrain Race 2010. She had gotten lost during the 16-kilometer trail run. She was also registered separately for the mountain bike race. With minutes to spare, she emerged from the trail run, did the 20-kilometer technical mountain bike trail — and won 2nd place overall female at the bike race! Last year she got married, got pregnant, and had a baby. This year, she’s back in the saddle and on track, running a 10-kilometer race only a month after giving birth.
I’m very sorry, and I’ll delete the post and will delete any other posts as requested, and will check in the future before reblogging any selfies that are not initially posted to a woman-identifying blog.
First of its kind in the world : Bharatanatyam (south Indian Classical Dance) on wheel Chairs
Innovation and revolution in the history of classical dances of India.
Yes! This is the time to arise and awake and see to believe - an innovation and revolution in the history of classical dances of India. Performing Bharatanatyam on wheel chairs and use of wheels in place of legs has taken years and hours of hard work and innovative methodology. In this unique performance, one can witness indomitable spirit of these differently abled artistes in each movement dance.
Today it is our privilege that the most respected classical dance form Bharatanatyam can be performed by disabled people on wheel chairs. The complete adavu (steps), jathi (combination of advus), thirmanams (sequence of pure rhythmic dance composed of adavu-jathis) are reinvented on wheels and these are performed with absolute precision. Wheel chairs have great advantage to perform many steps, to mention a few like rangakramana adavu (covering the stage), bhramari (spins), jaru adavu (sliding), with speed and precision. The spinning speed of a wheel chair is faster than an accomplished dancer’s spins! The speed on wheel chairs is about 100 kms/hr. They have excelled both in Nritta and Nritya.
- Ability Unlimited, a non-profit in India that teaches classical Indian dance adapted for wheelchair use as therapy. Besides Bharatanatyam they also have Bagwatgeeta, yoga, “miracle” (where the wheels spin up to 150-200 km/h), Sufi dance, martial arts, Durga, Ramayana, and a whole bunch of others.
