Badminton is not just my game, it’s what defines me. It makes me who I am. I started playing in Mumbai when I was nine years old. My dad was an active player in our colony and would play outdoor badminton with his friends. It was he who introduced me to the game. After I started beating him and his friends at the games, he let me participate in my first ever school tournament - where I secured third place. The following summer, I joined a summer coaching camp under Santosh Kshatriya and, in exactly two months, I won my first ‘under 10’ state tournament. My romance with badminton began then and is still going very strong.
