An amputee mountaineer by the name of Arunima Sinha was congratulated by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
PM Modi congratulated her on social media for successfully climbing Mount Vinson, the highest mountain in Antarctica.
“Excellent! Congratulations to @sinha_arunima for scaling new heights of success,” PM Modi wrote on his official Twitter handle.
“She is the pride of India, who has distinguished herself through her hardwork and perseverance. Wishing her the very best for her future endeavours,” he added.
Arunima is the first woman amputee to scale Mt Everest and had gone on to tag PM Modi while tweeting about her latest success.
Ms Sinha is a former national level volleyball player.
In 2011, she was pushed from a running train while attempting to resist a gang of dacoits. One of her legs had to be amputated following the incident.
