IFORHER’s Women Empowerment Series capture real stories of women who are stepping out of their comfort zone to show the world how women are no less. One such heroic woman is this 11-yo Anjali, who has inspired many in their battle against cancer. Read more to know-how.
Recently, a video of a dance performance of a young girl has gone viral on social media for all the right reasons.
The video captures 11-year-old Anjali, dressed beautifully in a lehenga choli, performing difficult Kathak steps and chakkars to the beats of the song on Shreya Ghoshal’s hit number Mere Dholna Sunn from Akshay Kumar’s 2007 film Bhool Bhulaiyaa during a medical conference in Kolkata.
But what makes her performance even more special is the fact that despite losing one of her legs to cancer she puts up such a brilliant performance.
Dr. Arnab Gupta, who attended the conference, shared Anjali’s performance on Facebook with a beautiful caption:
“One of the best parts of the Conference. Anjali, who dreamt of becoming a great dancer lost her left leg at tender age of 11 to cancer. Our treating doctors and nurses inspired her with the story of Sudhachandran. She fought back to become an outstanding dancer within couple of years, winning several accolades and hearts.
She fulfilled my wishes by performing in the Surgical Oncology Conference Inauguration to this particular Shreya Ghoshal number, sending a strong message to all about how to face Cancer with a grit even at her age. She will remain my inspiration. God bless her…”
