Not long ago, Malvika Iyer was praised by Vikas Khanna after she posted her achievement as a cook on Twitter. A double-amputee, Iyer had lost both her hands in a bomb blast when she was 13-years-old.
When I lost both my hands to the bomb blast, I’d convinced myself that in this life I’d never be able to cook on my own.
Be unstoppable. pic.twitter.com/p865zIbXD3

Once again, people are congratulating Iyer after her Facebook post went viral. Iyer shared that she has earned her Ph.D. and will now be known as ‘Dr. Malvika Iyer’.
She captioned the post thus,
“Say hello to Dr. Malvika Iyer. PS: To everyone who’s been curious as to how I type, do you see that bone protruding from my right hand? That’s my one and only extraordinary finger. I even typed my Ph.D. thesis with it.”
Her post has received over 6,700 likes and more than 3,000 shares.
One user wrote, “Women need encouragement…and you are the best role model…Keep Inspiring.”
Another one commented, “Life should never be looked at as what one can’t do but should be a discovery of what one can instead.”
