India’s Disabled Motivational Speakers leading the way

With one of the largest disability populations in the world, it is no surprise that we have many success stories being celebrated by people with disabilities in India! Be it business, politics, sports, entertainment, war veterans, policymaking, literature, etc. When it comes to motivational speaking, we have great inspiring storytellers like Arunima Sinha, a disabled motivational speaker who scaled Mount Everest and many other peaks with an amputated leg, Major DP Singh, a physically challenged motivational speaker and celebrated Kargil War survivor, Deepa Malik, a Paralympian and handicapped motivational speaker who delivers sessions with unimaginable energy, passion, and humor, and many more examples! Inspirational speakers with disabilities bring in many human stories of optimism, never giving up belief systems, resourcefulness, and making it happen despite extreme challenges. It is a session that gets standing ovations and claps of a speech like never before.

How to Hire Disabled Motivational Speakers

Inspirational speakers with disabilities can be the perfect choice for your next corporate event. They choose keynote speaking when it comes to winning despite disability, perseverance, self-love, power of focus, and inspiring others in their journey. There are several factors to consider while booking a disabled motivational speaker for your event. Each detail is significant, from budget and availability to technical, logistical requirements and legal considerations. Our experts can assist you in discovering disability motivational speakers from our roster of more than 1,000 keynote speakers.

Disability motivational speakers such as these provide an unparalleled source of inspiration:

Arunima Sinha


India’s Arunima Sinha, a disabled motivational speaker who became the world’s first female amputee to climb Mount Everest in 2013, has added another impressive record to her resume. The 30-year-old, who is also a physically challenged motivational speaker, has now become the first female amputee to climb Mount Vinson, the highest peak of Antarctica. Arunima, a former national-level volleyball player turned mountaineer, is also a handicapped motivational speaker. Arunima lost one of her legs in a horrific incident when she was thrown off the moving Padmawati Express train for resisting a chain-snatching attempt by hooligans in 2011. It was after this incident, when she was recovering, that Arunima decided to become a mountaineer and scale the highest peaks in the world. 

Deepa Malik


For Deepa Malik, a disabled motivational speaker, life has never been able to pose a challenge that could dim her spirit. From getting operated upon when her husband was serving the nation in Kargil and getting 163 stitches between her shoulder blades, she has been a real-life inspiration for years now. As a physically challenged motivational speaker, she has won sporting laurels at the international stage for close to a decade. The only medal missing from her repertoire was the Paralympic one. And at Rio, she has fulfilled her dream: Shotputter Deepa Malik, a handicapped motivational speaker, bags historic silver at the Rio Paralympics. 

Major D P Singh


In 1999, during the Kargil War, a shell exploded next to Major D P Singh, and he was almost shredded to pieces. When he was brought into the hospital, the doctors at first glance, declared him dead, and it was just a stroke of luck that one doctor who was present on the spot refused to give up on him and managed to resuscitate him. He eventually survived and underwent several surgeries, but his leg had to be amputated. This may have shattered an ordinary person, but then, Major D P Singh is no ordinary person. As a disabled motivational speaker, he was determined not to be treated as a victim. He was determined to give a new purpose to his life, which he did! As one of the most inspirational speakers with disabilities, Major D P Singh transformed his adversity into motivation for others. His journey as a physically challenged motivational speaker has inspired countless individuals, proving the power of resilience and determination.

Dr Malvika Iyer


Malvika Iyer‘s story is one of courage and determination. She has come a long way from surviving a gruesome bomb blast at the age of 13 that blew off her arms and severely damaged her legs, to winning the highest civilian honor from the President of India. Today, she is a disabled motivational speaker, inspiring millions to forget their limitations and take on the world with confidence and hope. As an inspirational motivational speaker, Malvika exemplifies the spirit of physically challenged motivational speakers, turning her tragedy into a beacon of hope for others. 

Shalini Saraswathi


A rare bacterial disease led to the amputation of Shalini Saraswathi’s limbs when she was in her 30s. At 36, she took up running and is now preparing for the Paralympics. She is also a disabled motivational speaker and blogger with her own original series on Firework. As a physically challenged motivational speaker, Shalini inspires many with her resilience and determination. Her story highlights the power of handicapped motivational speakers to overcome significant challenges and motivate others. 

These people have earned a name for themselves despite their disabilities. Their strength and tenacity is something we all should learn from. With every disabled motivational speaker, there comes a story that touches our hearts and makes us realize the importance of being happy with what we have.
