Meet Subhreet Kaur: An Inspirational One Legged Performer

Subhreet Kaur is an inspirational ‘one legged performer’ from India, who became famous after taking part in the reality show, India’s Got Talent.

Belonging to a very ordinary village of Punjab, Subhreet has a very extraordinary life. She dances on a single leg, and mesmerizes the viewers. Subhreet made to the finals of IGT and got the deserved fame thereafter. 


Beginning of the Journey

Subhreet Kaur had a life just as every other human has until she met a cruel accident while travelling on a two wheeler with a friend. In October 2009, the accident took place which fractured her left leg.

After admitted to the local hospital Subhreet was left unattended due to the carelessness of the hospital staff and which infected her entire part of leg below the knee and had to undergo a surgery which also unfortunately went bad and she has to lose her left leg. 

Subhreet had faced several troubles living with one leg and after a whole year of pain, her life stated to become normal. This was the beginning of her new life and even she never thought she will reach at the position where she is today.


The Positivity

It was a completely new life for Subhreet and she was filled in with enthusiasm and the spirit of achieving something in life. She pursued dance as she had a craze for it once. Now, dancing with one leg was not easy at all and she was also rejected by many of the dance coaching classes as well. Finally she made it to one of the dance academy in Chandigarh known as Rockstar Dance Academy. From there, she had no reason to look back.


India’s Got Talent

The ultimate test of Subhreet started at IGT. But she had confidence and the willingness to achieve success which made her reach to the finals and then she was a common name for everyone. Within days of audition and after a single stage performance she had managed to grab more than a million fans on the social media. This was the result of her hard work that Subhreet was accepted as an inspiration for all those who find themselves disabled.

Subhreet never allowed her physical challenge to come in her way of passion towards dance and went on giving mesmerizing performance every week and reached to the finals, where she lost the trophy but won several hearts. 


The Happy Moments

In the month of June, Subhreet got married to Yash Makkar, a gym instructor from Chandigarh. They both met each other after Subhreet lost her leg in the accident and when she was learning to live her life with one leg. Yash supported her at the worst phase of her life and during that, they both fell in love with each other and finally got married. Despite of Subhreet being physically challenged this never affected their relationship.


A message for all

When someone has the inner willingness and courage to reach at a position, nothing can stop him or her. Subhreet proved to the entire world that she is not physically challenged but she has challenged the life and has won it with pride. Respect for this brave and courageous Punjabi girl who lost one of her legs but has achieved more than something which even people with two legs cannot achieve in life.
