New Delhi: She might have lost a leg, but Arunima Sinha, the volleyball player who was allegedly pushed from a speeding train, has not lost her confidence.

The 23-year-old national level player, who is recuperating at the AIIMS since mid-April, could well become a beautician in the near future as she is being imparted beauty courses by Shahnaaz Hussain.

At the AIIMS Trauma Centre here currently, Arunima is showing "considerable progress" and may be discharged soon, doctors attending on her said.

"She is fit to be discharged. She has recovered well. We have made arrangements for her prosthetics. In a day or two we will discharge her. We are waiting for a go-ahead from the

Misra said Arunima is undergoing a training in beauty parlour course offered by Shahnaaz Hussain. "She had come to us two weeks back and offered to train Arunima in some beauty

"I had been offered many jobs but have not seen any development till now. I have to make a living and that is why I accepted the offer. Shahnaaz Hussain has also offered to grant me a franchise in Lucknow," Arunima said.

Sinha was allegedly pushed out of a train in Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh on April 11 by three men. She lost her left leg in the incident.
