On overcoming obstacles
There will be many obstacles in the pursuit of your dreams. I had long hours of training, balancing studies and badminton.
Fitness is the key. You need to have strokes and stamina and agility; you need to exercise really well. On-court and off-court are equally important.
On managing studies with Badminton
I went to school like any other regular student till Class VIII, and my favourite subject was math. From Class IX, things got a little difficult to manage. I was inclined towards studies, but then I also had to give time to badminton.
Your dreams are what define your individuality. They have the power to give you wings and make you fly high.
When you are injured, you need to strengthen yourself very well to make a comeback very confidently.
On how passion helps one soar high
Nagpur to Kanyakumari and Kashmir, future Olympic medallists can come from anywhere. It is the passion that drives you, not the city, provided you get enough facilities.
On training during period
My period days didn’t make me falter: they made me more determined to pursue my dreams.
On support of parents
When I started, I didn’t think I would become a great player. It was my passion; I had interest. My parents supported me. In that way, I continued.
I train for six days in a week for eight to ten hours of practice per day.
Importance of learning and improving
You have to keep working all the time. How much you learn, there is always room for learning; you will have to keep improving all the time.
The key is not being overconfident. You should not think that because I’m a top-ranked player, I will win this game. You have to be focused.
