Deepa Malik has been the first ever Indian Woman Para Athlete to win an Asian Games medal in athletics, the first ever Indian woman to win a world championship medal, the first ever woman Paralympic Medallist across any sport ,the only Indian woman athlete to win 3 successive Asian Games. In addition to the above she also holds a world record for open river swimming across the Yamuna River for 1 km against the current and also a record for doing a pan-India drive to promote para-sports in the country to spread the message of “Ability Beyond Disability”.

According to Prof. Debashis Chatterjee the Director of IIM Kozhikode, “IIMK prides itself in empowering women and wishes to highlight the importance of women in all spheres of life. Dr. Deepa Malik is the personification of focus and determination. We hope that this event inspires all the runners taking part in the Marathon, encourages them to pursue their dreams despite all odds and stand united in their endeavours. This is inspired by the theme of the marathon, ‘United Kerala’.”

The Institute had earlier announced its plan to create 60 women-only supernumerary PGP seats for its 2019 intake and by having an award given to Deepa Malik shows the Institute’s aspiration of acknowledging the leadership of Indian women.
