It is worth mentioning here that Arunima Sinha is an Indian mountain climber and sportswoman. She is the World's first female amputee to scale Mount Everest, Mount Kilimanjaro (Tanzania), Mount Elbrus (Russia), Mount Kosciusko (Australia), Mount Aconcagua (South America), Carstensz Pyramid (Indonesia), and Mount Vinson. She was pushed from a running train by some robbers in 2011. As a result, her left leg had to be amputated below the knee. In 2015, the government of India honoured her with the Padma Shri award, the fourth highest civilian award of India.
