HOMEGROWN CHAMPION

Saina Nehwals phenomenal success as an international badminton player is one of the most inspiring stories of Indian sports.

Saina comes from a middle-class family and has been groomed into a world-class player in the face of awesome odds.

This is an account of her rise as a champion with the selfless support of her parents Dr Harvir Singh, an agricultural scientist, and Usha Rani and the dedication of her coaches.

Saina ranks among the top few players in the world and is an icon for the young. But success hasnt changed her. Strong family values make her the girl next door. She is known for her integrity, courage and persistence. The story also unfolds against the backdrop of Indian badminton fighting to earn its place in the sun in a country which worships only cricket.
