Let's know more about her!

How did you develop a love for Squash and how did it become a career?

Ans: I was a Born asthmatic child and I was always encouraged by doctors and my parents to take up sports to get physically better. I used to watch people play squash at Ashok club, Jaipur that's where the game struck me and my uncle who has been my mentor Mr. Ronny Sharman encouraged me to play it. Squash was my passion that Turned into my profession eventually.

What were the obstacles to pursuing such a different career path, especially as a girl?

Ans: I have been very fortunate that my parents never let me feel that I am a girl and they won't let me play the sport ahead. They have helped me with everything and they have been my pillar of strength throughout. But yes the society, in general, doesn't let girls pursue a different field and they expect girls to move the traditional way of basic education and getting married so I had few people who would always put things like that to me, but my family is a very Modern family and they let me pursue my dreams.

Do you think women stand shoulder to shoulder with men or you find a gap?

Ans: I think both have their different paths and the girls of today's time realize that they don't need to be equals with men but rather be their own way ahead. Women today are doing the best in whatever field they are choosing, which is a great way for the country ahead.

One defining moment in your life which changed everything.

Ans: Playing for the country for the first time in 2004, wearing the Indian team jersey and winning a medal was the best and the most defining moment.

How would you want to contribute to society?

Ans: For me shaping the future of tomorrow in this country is the best way to contribute to the society. Through sports whatever infrastructure and coaching I couldn't get in my own state, I would like to give back to the players in the state so that they don't have to leave the state.

What do you have to say about your association with CHICS CONNECT?

Ans: Chics connect is working well towards connecting and empowering women and I wish them well in all their endeavors ahead.
