As an active Sportswomen, I feel empowered to be Asia’s number 1 position in Yachting and world number 12 , with competition from countrys like China to challenge me from putting India on the world map, as the best in the sport.
As I prepare for Olympics next year, It is my dream to achieve glory and the Gold for my country and send a strong message to this adversary country, that any challenge to India , whether on the borders or Sport , would see them face only defeat.
As the sport of Sailing / Yachting has been predominant in India with athletes from the armed forces, it has been a excellent experience for me to steer achievements for athletes at the world level, from civilian backgrounds in the country including myself.
Under your leadership , I look forward to great initiatives in such water sports to create good infrastructure and make it accessible to the high level of talent , which we have in the country.
