“Jeetne wala koi alag kaam nahi karta, wo har kaam ko alag tareeke se karta hai” were the words with which Himani Bundela, a visually impaired candidate from Agra, began her KBC trip on the Hot Seat. Himani is a spirited teacher who strives to make math class a fun class for elementary school students. She is the most sought after teacher of her students because she makes Mental Maths a special learning experience for them by calling it “Maths Magic”. During her KBC trip on August 30th and 31st, she will also be teaching some mental math tricks to Mr. Bachchan, who greatly appreciated it.
In 2011, Himani suffered an unfortunate accident that caused her vision to be blurred. Even after several operations, the doctors were unable to save her eyesight. After a traumatic experience, Himani kept her hopes in the lurch and, over time, devoted her life to her passion – teaching and sensitizing children to the situations of people with special abilities. Himani firmly believes in staying happy and spreading happiness. “Yun toh zindagi sabhi kat lete hain yahan. Magar zindagi jiyo aise ki misaal ban jaye! ” was something Himani recited on KBC and true to her words she went on to steal the show!

Himani will answer Computer ji’s questions carefully and with great precision and enchant everyone with her spirited and positive attitude! After successfully answering the 1 million question, she will try the 7 million question with equal enthusiasm.
Himani said, “Being on Kaun Banega Crorepati and meeting Mr. Bachchan has always been a dream and I am glad that I was able to fulfill it. Mr. Bachchan made me feel so comfortable on the sets of the show that I wasn’t nervous at all. My life after the accident wasn’t easy. Many of us had to put in an enormous amount of work to find our daily livelihood, especially my parents and my siblings. As a visually impaired woman, I hope my stay at KBC gives people just like me a lot of hope. Many students with special skills are admitted to schools and colleges, but there are no state competitive exam coaching academies that accept students with disabilities. With the money I have won, I would like to open a trainer academy that trains the ‘Divyang’ children for state performance tests.
