The India women are doing wonders in every field that they are entering whether it’s beauty pageants, sports, science, technology and so on. The successful Indian women are not only setting benchmarks but they are also providing inspiration to many other young girls who want to make big in this world.
Recently, the Miss World 2017 Manushi Chillar, the Indian squash player Dipika Pallikal and the Indian boxer Nikhat Zareen came together in a campaign “Watch Us Move” which was organized by Adidas as an initiative of celebrating womanhood and the free movement of women.
In a video released as a part of the campaign, the three talented and beautiful women were having a chat with each other and during the conversation, Nikhat tried to teach the other two her favourite shot which is known as hook punch. Nikhat says that she does boxing in the 51 kg category and she has one advantage that she is the tallest in that category. She further adds that she shows her opponent as if she is going to hit but she doesn’t hit and allows her opponent to hit and when the opponent tries to hit her, she throws no counter punches which is called as feint attack.
After listening to what Nikhat said, Dipika made a funny comment that she would practice it on her hubby today. Dipika is married to Indian cricketer Dinesh Karthik who is presently out of the Indian squad but plays for Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL.
Dipika who has won four medals in Asian games and three medals in Commonwealth Games also talked about how they both spent lockdown. She told that in the beginning, it was fine as they felt that it would get over soon and they just needed to work on their fitness. For this purpose, they stayed in touch with their trainers a lot, in fact more than they are nowadays. She further says that she feels lockdown has certainly taken a toll on the athletes, especially those who are Olympians and it is more mental rather than physical.
Great going gals!
