About Positive Health Awards 2019

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 human spirit in its 13th year of Dr Batra’s™ Positive Health Awards 2019.

People’s Choice Nominees 2019

The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person's determination. Over the past 13 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's hearts but also millions and who had redefined goals time and again to reach greater heights. In the year 2016, Deepa Malik, the 1st Indian woman to win a Paralympics medal, was awarded Dr Batra's People's Choice Award. We extended the tradition in the 11th edition where Sai Kaustuv Dasgupta, the wheelchair warrior and a happiness coach won the award in 2017 and Vikram Agnihotri, 1st Indian bilateral amputee with driving licence, won the award in 2018. In the 13th edition Swarnalatha J. has won the People's Choice Award 2019.
