Women sports have come ages and both Sania Mirza and Mithali Raj bat for women sportspersons and it is a good move. We in India, were not backing women’s sports in the past and since the 1982 Asian Games in Delhi, women sports personalities are growing in proportion and it has reached a stage that they are challenging men in all the heats and that is a great motivation.
Comparing to the other states in the country, North Indian state players practice and prepare for the big event like Olympics. Kerala stands second and the sporting events for women spread all over the country. The wonder women peaked at the right time and PT Usha set the tone with athletics and named sprint queen. It is a great sign of significant improvement as in recent time Sindhu, Saina, Sania and Mithali Raj came to the fore with flying colours. Women’s sports in India is blooming and now it is at its best in the new era.
