I am a passionate badminton player and have been pursuing this sport since a very young age. I have participated in many championship and have been blessed to find success in state as well as national level championships.
Though I am currently pursuing an MBA degree, I believe that Badminton is in my blood! And my father has been the greatest supporter of me and my passion. At the age of nine, when badminton was a hobby for me, he began to mentor me personally. One year later, I enrolled at a professional coaching centre and thus my journey in this field began.
I realised my potential for this sport when I partook in the State Championship-Under 13 category and attained the runners up position. This proved to be my first step towards success and thus motivated me to continue on with my developing passion. My coach, Ravi Kunte developed my game and made it possible for me to succeed at higher levels.
Over the years I have been privileged to represent myself in various tournaments and have won various accolades; Junior Boys Singles Semi-Finalist at RSC All India Junior Ranking Tournament, Cochin 2008, Men’s Singles Winner at Pune District Badminton Championship, 2012, and Represented Maharashtra State at The West Zone Inter State Badminton Championship, Raipur (Chhattisgarh) 2013, to name a few.
However these achievements wouldn’t have been possible if I hadn’t persevered towards it, hadn’t been disciplined in my efforts or hadn’t had my father’s unconditional support. Your hard work and dedication is what separates you from the rest.
And it is vital to ones success to realise the importance of not quitting. Because failures and challenges are a part of our lives, but what matters is what we make of them in the end. And so, I continue to follow my passion and live the life I love to live!
