Sarita will compete in Floor Hockey for Special Olympics Bharat for the World Winter Games 2017. However, her path to the Games has not been free of hardships. Her father has a hearing impairment and earns a paltry sum as a house painter. Often, he is unable to earn a livelihood. When Sarita was 9 years old, she was admitted in the nearby general school, but she stopped going after a couple of years. She felt uncomfortable and lonely and had no friends. Now, though, her special talent in sports has been identified and she is climbing the ladder of success, culminating in a trip to Austria to represent her country.
