Thupten Tsering of Arunachal Pradesh, a Indian Idol 9 Contestant, is the living example of sheer determination to do great things when pitted against adverse conditions. Tsering, a double amputee who lost both his hands at the age of 5, was praised by not just the judges but also from cricketing God Sachin Tendulkar.
Sachin Tendulkar was so moved that he wrote on Facebook “This guy is special. He is amazingly positive despite his challenges. Truly inspiring… More power to you”.
