Prathima is paralysed from below the waist since she was three years old and has represented India in many international games in the past. However, she couldn't win those games due to lack of better equipment and training.
But she plans to raise money to get a better wheelchair which will allow her to move smoothly and quickly to compete with international players in the upcoming games.
