An explosion during the Kargil conflict left DP Singh without a leg. But the feisty army major fought his disability to become a celebrated marathon runner.

It was the summer of 1999. At the onset of the Kargil conflict, a young army major was commanding a post close to the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir’s Akhnoor sector.
