Disabled athlete sells gold medals to buy mother's meds

43-year-old Indira Gaikwad, the recipient of the Shiv Chhatrapati award, was forced to sell some of her gold medals in scrap in order to buy medicines for her ailing mother; the powerlifter has been running from pillar to post since 1997 for a government job

There are few moments in a sportsperson’s life that are more heartbreaking than when they have to part with their hard-earned medals. Powerlifter Indira Gaikwad however, did not have much of a choice, as she had no other means to buy medicines for her mother.
