Women Who Kick Ass

(94# India) Sudha Chandran: Why she kicks ass
She is a Bharatanatyam dancer, and film and television actress in India. 
She earned her B.A from Mithibai College, Mumbai and subsequently an M.A in Economics.
In 1981, while traveling from Mumbai to the South during pilgrimage she had an accident which meant she had to have her right leg amputated as doctors missed a wound in her ankle and put plaster over it, leading to gangrene in the wound.
She found this time very rough, and subsequently overcame her disability with the help of a prosthetic Jaipur foot, dancing both with and without the Jaipur foot.
She became one of the most highly acclaimed dancers of the Indian subcontinent.
She received invitations from all over the world for performances. She was honored with various awards after she performed as far away from home as Europe, Canada and the Middle East. 
In 986 she received a Special Jury Award from the National Film Awards for her role in the movie Mayuri in which she played herself and was based on her life.
