About the book

INDIA'S FIRST BLADE RUNNER.

Acclaimed. Admired. Applauded.

But behind Major Devender Pal Singh's success and fame is an extraordinary tale of years of struggle and self-doubt, overcome by incredible courage and singular determination to serve the country against all odds.

Grit: The Major Story is the true account of a man who rose from humble beginnings to become a hero. Faced with the tragic loss of a limb while serving on the frontlines during the Kargil War, Major Singh's indomitable spirit came to the fore. With the support of his family, friends and dedicated healthcare professionals, and aided by the training he received in the army, he set a fresh course for his life.

Today, Major Singh is a well-known athlete and motivational speaker, inspiring thousands of people to believe in their innate strength and resilience. Vividly portrayed in graphic form, his story will spur every reader to face life's challenges with spirit and goodwill.

Grit, about a hero so inspiring in so many fields, is an inspiration to children and adults alike. It is a graphic motivational talk. This could be the start of a series on similar inspiring figures.' - Suresh Menon, journalist and Editor, Wisden India
Major DP Singh is an inspiration and Grit has captured his journey beautifully. A must read for all ages.' - Dr Kiran Bedi, Lt Governor, Puducherry
Many surrender to challenges that life throws at them. Some persevere. But a few conquer life itself. What Major Singh has done, against all the odds that he faced, is truly worthy of the exhilarating title of this book: Grit: The Major Story. My compliments to Ferose and Sriram for recording what is truly a tale that should be read by all. Inspirational!' - Amish Tripathi, author of the Shiva Trilogy
