In the district of Madurai (with a population of nearly three million), there were just five indoor badminton courts in the mid-90s and none of them were wooden ones. Access to these courts was limited. With the help of my dad, I got to play in a government officers’ club and was among the lucky few to get access to indoor courts. This way I eliminated most of my competitors. The reason? My dad was a government officer.

Ask anyone to name five Indian sportswomen in action today--after the inevitable Saina Nehwal and Sania Mirza, there's a bound to be a lot of awkward clearing of the throat. Some will mention Mary Kom (after all, Priyanka Chopra starred in a movie about her) or reach further into the past till PT Usha. On the other hand, ask about male athletes and the answers come flying. The question arises: do we not have enough Indian female athletes or are they simply ignored?
The most important story in India about the ultimate event in sports--The Summer Olympic Games--is whether Salman Khan was the right choice for Goodwill Ambassador. My knee-jerk reaction was that a sportsperson should be appointed as Goodwill Ambassador to a sporting event. I thought the choice of Salman was senseless. I was wrong. This entire debate is senseless.
