Internet Desk: Ex-navy commando Praveen Teotia has done an unthinkable thing at Khardung La marathon last week. Teotia was heavily injured during the 26/11 operations against the terrorists in Mumbai as he was hit by four bullets during military operation in Taj Mahal hotel in the month of November, 2008. The bullets hit his ear, lung and other parts of the body too.

Though after recovering from the heavy wounds, Teotia requested a permission to attend Navy’s mountaineering expedition, but doctors didn’t give him the required permission for medical issues.The former Navy officer was determined that he would show the Navy that he is fully fit and he is capable to do and that’s why he started participating in marathons.

He completed a very difficult race called Khardung La marathon on September 9, despite a damaged lung and also won a medal for completing the task within the stipulated time.

Legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar shared the news piece on Teotia on his Twitter and wrote,” Impossible is just a word. If you have the desire to achieve something, then nothing can stop you. #PraveenTeotia, you are an inspiration!”
