Major D.P. Singh

Major D.P. Singh

India’s first blade runner who was once blown apart by a mortar on the Kargil battlefield! The army surgeon declared him dead on arrival, after being blown up by a mortar bomb. However, 25-year-old Major Singh was not ready to die. The story of how he wins over death sounds incredible when you see him today, full of vitality. Today, at 39, the Indian Blade Runner has run close to 20 marathons. He is also a motivational speaker, inspiring amputees across India. He manages a support group called The Challenging Ones.
