T Mariyappan and Varun Singh won India's first couple of medals at the Paralympics 2016. This how the world reacted to the inspirational medal winners.
Well said Viru paa! True heroes indeed...
The bitter truth..
All feel elated when Mariyappan and Bhati win #Paralympics but remain insensitive to millions of such children who get no support in schools— Tarun Vijay (@Tarunvijay) September 10, 2016
Look who is biting the bullet now!
Finally a tweet where Vijay Goel doesn't mess up!
He opens with the bat and they opened the medals tally for India!
Two high jumps for Indian athletes, two giant leaps for India! Congratulations Mariyappan Thangavelu and Bhati Varun Singh! #Paralympics— Gautam Gambhir (@GautamGambhir) September 10, 2016
Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India, wished them too!
For the ones who missed the jump, here is a short video of the wonderful moment!
Well, we wish they get honoured like Sindhu as well!
Great move, Tamil Nadu government!
Vishy celebrates in Kabali style!
