About Himani Bundela –
Himani is a teacher from Agra. The contestant appeared on the show with her father who can be heard saying that the family is proud of their daughter.
In Himani Bundela’s introduction video, Himani said that her main purpose behind appearing on the show is that awareness programmes about specially-abled children should be run everywhere. She added that she runs such awareness programmes in her school.
She revealed that she was also a little nervous. She said, “At first I was nervous because I was competing with those people who had more learning source than me, and they could easily see the questions on the screen and do it, but I also had this in my mind that I have nothing to lose. Ya to kuch naya seekhenge ya jeetenge (Either I will learn something new or win). I can’t express my feelings when I reach the hot seat.”
In the year 2011, Himani met with an unfortunate accident due to which her vision was blurred. Even after multiple surgeries, the doctors couldn’t save her vision. Himani didn’t let her hopes down and over time, dedicated her life to her passion for teaching and raising awareness about inclusive education. Himani strongly believes in staying happy and spreading happiness.
