In
doing
so,
the
38-year-old
district
magistrate
of
Gautam
Buddh
Nagar
(Noida)
also
became
the
first-ever
IAS
officer
to
have
not
only
participated
but
also
won
a
medal
in
the
Paralympics.

Tokyo
Paralympics:
Never
been
so
happy
and
disappointed
at
the
same
time
in
my
life:
Suhas

“We
are
very
proud
of
him.
Whatever
he
has
done
is
a
live
example
for
all
of
us.
It
was
an
impossible
attempt,
I
believe.
Wins
and
losses
are
part
and
parcel
of
life
but
the
way
he
put
in
all
his
efforts
is
what
I
am
going
to
remember
forever,”
Ritu,
who
is
an
additional
district
magistrate
in
Ghaziabad,
told
PTI.

“The
race
for
medals
is
endless.
Today
it’s
silver,
tomorrow
it’s
gold.
Then
it
would
be
something
else.
The
biggest
achievement
is
participating
in
a
world
tournament
and
realising
a
long-nurtured
dream,”
she
said.

Congratulatory
phone
calls
and
messages
including
those
from
Prime
Minister
Narendra
Modi
and
Uttar
Pradesh
Chief
Minister
Yogi
Adityanath
poured
in
after
the
victory.

“Bringing
glory
to
India
and
Uttar
Pradesh
at
the
world
stage
is
the
achievement,”
Ritu
said.
Suhas
and
Ritu
got
married
in
2008.
They
have
a
daughter
and
a
son.

“So
many
phone
calls,
messages
and
people’s
response
on
social
media.
Couldn’t
have
imagined
this
and
so
all
this
is
going
to
stay
with
us
as
memories.
I
am
very
happy
today,”
she
said.

Ritu
recalled
how
she
would
get
up
at
2
AM
here
and
give
a
wake-up
call
to
Suhas
in
Tokyo
owing
to
the
time
difference
between
Indian
and
Japan
in
order
to
make
sure
that
he
was
ready
for
his
matches.
“I
always
spoke
to
him
before
and
after
the
match,”
she
said.

Ritu
also
said
that
she
does
not
watch
Suhas’ matches
live
because
doing
so
makes
her
anxious.
“I
get
very
anxious
during
his
matches
so
I
do
not
watch
them.
He
only
who
calls
me
up
after
every
match
to
share
the
results,”
she
said.

Prior
to
unseeded
Suhas’
nail-biting
finals
with
top
seed
Lucas
Mazur
of
France,
Ritu
said
her
husband
was
relaxed
and
prepared
to
play
without
any
pressure.

“He
does
not
believe
in
taking
pressure.
He
plays
with
a
free
mind.
He
was
really
excited
after
the
semifinals
victory
and
I
also
told
him
that
a
medal
was
certain
now,”
she
said.

Suhas’
native
village
Lalinakere
in
Shivamogga,
Karnataka
was
also
celebrating
his
victory.
People
who
knew
him
came
out
on
the
streets
with
sweet
boxes
and
started
distributing
them
to
everyone
they
met.
Similar
scenes
were
witnessed
in
Shivamogga
town
as
well.

example

been
playing
badminton

the
past

very
hard
to
improve
