All of us like the idea of raising a child who loves sports. It would make my day if my daughter is the next Saina Nehwal for the nation. I know that it isn’t that easy and this journey comes with a lot of tough decisions when it comes to right nutrition, how much sleep should he/she get and more. The biggest one that I fear – “Will my child feel pressurized and will he/she have to give up a lot?”.

It isn’t easy but it is very important to make well-informed decisions. It is one thing to dream big but it is another thing to ensure harmony in the family.
