Tinkesh Kaushik

Tinkesh Kaushik

Tinkesh Kaushik got electrocuted while removing a kite from a live wire, when he was 9 years old. He was thrown 2 feet away with his left arm displaced and hanging on the branch of a tree with both his legs totally burnt. Tinkesh never gave up on life and pulled himself out of this stigma. An organization donated prosthetic legs and helped train him in para-sports. Tinkesh plans to take up Para-Badminton and join our champions to represent our nation in the future championships and participate in the next Paralympics.
