His latest book Smash! The Rise of Indian Badminton – Stories of Grit & Triumph captures Indian badminton’s explosive journey from Prakash Padukone to P V Sindhu.
It’s less of a book on badminton sport, and more on lesser known factors that contributed to India emerging as a force in the world of badminton.
It also looks at the current weaknesses and how to plug them so that India can do even better in the future.
While badminton has emerged as the most popular sport in India after cricket and football, the book offers a recipe for making the sport a bigger movement.
For sports lovers, entrepreneurs, students and business leaders, this book can be a guide for achieving peak performance and inculcating a champion’s mindset.
