September 16, 2016
Gold medalist and paralympian Devendra Jhajharia had made an agreement with his daughter before he left for the Paralympics in Rio.
Six-year-old Jiya had told Devendra that if she topped her lower kindergarten exam, he would have to win a gold too.
She kept her word and called him at Rio to remind him of their agreement.
Devendra not only kept his promise but also made his country proud by winning a gold medal.
He now wants to spend time with his family as the tough sports training had kept them apart.
