Born with no arms, Swapna Augustine is an acclaimed painter from Kerala


Forty-years-old Swapna Augustine was born with no arms. However, this resident of Ernakulam stands out with her phenomenal achievements.

Her confidence is awe-inspiring too.

Her talent for art was discovered when she was still a schoolgirl. She received ample support from her parents and teachers to pursue her dreams. “The whole credit for my achievements goes to the almighty and my parents who motivated me to fight against the challenges. We are all capable of achieving success, but we just forget to look beyond the obstacles that we face,” Swapna told 7pm status.
