s she's consistently ranked among the top 10 female badminton players in the world it's very important we have to believe in ourselves that beliefs should always be there no matter what you can do anything in life so that is what I believe in and that is what my strength is you are not playing for someone else you are playing for yourself so you know it's just you and you know for that you can do anything PV Sindhu is India's most successful female badminton player Papa

you know I felt bad but on her return from the 2016 Olympics she got a big reception in her hometown Hyderabad a lot of people have been telling that you have no idea how it was here when you were playing you know big big screens out there and there were lots of people so as soon as I got down I mean like from the airport epithelia you know till the stadium it was like all like they were holding and there were people standing there even small children school children and I felt so happy that you
know people like loved me so much people support me so much and that is when I thought you know I still get goosebumps like seriously it's in a media it's an it's an amazing feeling but because she'd lost to the finals of international tournaments a few times she was criticized as well everybody was like kia-ora up Coria final merica Kia with a final phobia but the put there right at a but for me I'm just like okay I have to give an answer with my racket and I've proved
bbc indian sportswoman of the year the nominees   bbc news
myself last

year

I won the World Championships that is also one of the biggest victories five times dou bronze those silver and you know finally gold you have to enjoy your sport it's not that it's it's you shouldn't feel it like a burden where you know people are asking you to play and you play it's just for you you have to keep playing for yourself and yeah that's about it because at the end of thing you need to enjoy what you do stroke you 2020 are those who say I want
to get a medal for myself that is definitely one of the biggest dreams everybody would have and my ultimate aim would be that for generations women in India were told that their place was indoors that sport was not for them in the past decade or so though a crop of female players have with their success created a path for India's young women to follow I'm with a group of university students who play different types of sports so there's shooting basketball football and rugby
that's a very intense contact sport tell me when you as a woman wanted to take that up what was the reaction like they were shocked like because rugby is very tough game they need strength stamina agility all kind of fitness but my father is very supportive they he told me to join it and he encouraged me my mother told me not to play if you get any scare no one will marry you so but after marriage I'm thinking like I will play or I will as a career you're not just a football player
you also coach girls who are in school what attitudes like towards girls playing football and also what about access to equipment rural areas may like my job coaching karate somehow because he let UK gradually German Zabuza evening she can't play and volcko fools can take in a hickey line but when made not potentially a jump ok lay up here so what not best date here even yeah grass tomatoes water cheer happy to be my karate you I mean some happy though both been generally grasses be me ot
happy bunch is grounded etem happy Jeff walk Nagar say it's not convinced Turkey will go out here efforts could throw both besties ot I keep you in couple F word Milton or robot passionate oh dear how difficult is it still door for women to actually consider sport as something they can make a career out of like you play basketball would you consider pursuing it professionally I don't really think so because basketball in India festival is not at all a recognized sport even for the guys
but talking about girls I it's a vise choice for choosing basketball as a courier only if I go like abroad like in US where there's WNBA and there's little girls camps and everything it may be I might think about it give it a try but not in India now what we've seen happen in India over the last decade is that there's a handful of sports women who become really popular who become real icons and have broken glass ceilings it's you know what this program is actually looking
at to what extent does that inspire players like you because if the people who've come up because of the recent sports women who's become successful that's one of the reason I guess our society has become more women driven in in sport and they are now supporting women and actually not opposing it it's been a you know positive factor for us for people who were trying to pursue the sports in fact our next nominee is a sports woman who many in India look at as an inspiration MC Mary
comm is an Olympic boxer and she's won the gold for this country at several international events and among the many distinctions she has is that she's come back to the sport after having children something that's difficult for women to do in India even those who have regular jobs she's been the world champion in women's boxing six times during a career that spans two decades kumatora fighting has I wear my new Duryodhana is out there or receive Mara gave me focused curfew
