"When she was born, we got a little nervous thinking about how we will raise her and we often used to think why did God give her life at all. However, as she embarked on her journey from being a disabled child to becoming the 'Rubber Girl', we realized her purpose of life is yoga and we are helping her with that."
Anvi was awarded the National Child Award for her yoga skills
She has also won multiple medals at national yoga competitions
which have no separate categories for disabled people
