Sukanya’s a sprinter. She could be the best we’ve got. But living and training in the country’s
largest metropolis doesn’t necessarily ensure the requisite infrastructural, financial or emotional support.
This athlete is broke-n for two reasons.
One, of course, because she doesn’t play cricket. And you can’t particularly live off surfing or running or volleyball or ice skating in India, as yet.
And two, because athletes break themselves often. When they strain their muscles and labour their bones to perform better.
Whether injured or not, there is no brace.
Setback after setback, how do you pull yourself together?
What’s the fix?
More importantly, how do you keep coming back stronger?
This is her tryst with the track.
