Dipa Karmakar – The Small Wonder

Author: Bishweshwar Nandi, Digvijay Singh Deo, Vimal Mohan
Publisher: Fingerprint! Publishing

Award Category: English Non-Fiction

About the Book: 

On August 14, 2016, a young girl landed the Produnova that took her to the cusp of
an Olympic medal. She stood fourth yet soared into the hearts
of millions across the globe.
Dipa Karmakar’s fourth-place finish at the Rio Olympic Games was a defining moment for Indian sport, which had barely cast a
glance at the sport of gymnastics as a medal discipline till then. Dipa’s journey from Tripura, an oft-neglected sporting outpost, to
the national consciousness and India’s highest sporting honour, the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award, is one of grit, determination,
and a stubbornness to beat the odds.
