About Positive Health Awards 2018

The word ‘disabled’ is passé; what’s come into being is ‘being differently-abled’. Yes, that’s what these inspiring individuals thrive to prove through their unique lives. No matter what their ability, they surpassed challenges when life hurled them into the middle of the toughest of battles. They braced up, fought it out and drove towards victory, without worrying about the results.

The stories of these ‘differently-abled’ heroes, overcoming their shortcomings, will leave you in absolute awe. It’s not just a matter of pride but a privilege for Dr Batra’s™ Foundation to rejoice the triumph of the human spirit of Dr Batra’s™ Positive Health Awards 2018.

About People’s Choice Award 2018

The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person’s determination. Over the past 11th years, Dr Batra’s™ has honoured many remarkably exceptional individuals as Positive Health Heroes who have defied the odds posed on them by adversities and emerged triumphant to achieve the unimaginable. They have proven to the world by consistently establishing that ‘Nothing is impossible’. In the 10th year, we introduced a special People’s Choice Award to honour that one hero whose story had not only touched the jury but also millions, and who had redefined goals time and again to reach greater heights. We continued this tradition till the 12th edition of the Dr Batra’s™ Positive Health Awards 2018 too by saluting Nidhi Chaphekar, Vikram Agnihotri and Virali Modi as our 3 nominees for this award. They enjoyed a cumulative viewership of over 2.22 million and a reach of over 1.28 million country wide. Vikram Agnihotri beat the other nominees and rose as a winner of the People’s Choice Award 2018 with a story that proved his ‘drive’ to never give up!
