Para shooter Avani Lekhara has become the first woman to win a gold medal in the Paralympics. She won the gold medal in the women's 10m air rifle standing SH1 event. The 19-year-old shooter got injuries in the spinal cord after she met a car accident in 2012.

Wishes started pouring on social media sites for Lekhara for her exceptional performance at the Tokyo Paralympics 2020. Business tycoon Anand Mahindra was one of the well-wishers of Avani Lekhara, by lauding her performance, he wrote, "A week ago @DeepaAthlete  suggested that we develop SUV’s for those with disabilities. Like the one she uses in Tokyo. I requested my colleague Velu, who heads Development to rise to that challenge. Well, Velu, I’d like to dedicate & gift the first one you make to #AvaniLekhara."

People appreciated Mahindra's decision to launch and gift a new car for people with disabilities. The purpose of the SUV would be to make travelling a comforting experience for people with special abilities. This is not the first instance where Anand Mahindra has announced special rewards for an athlete.
