Union Minister for Youth Affairs and Sports Kiren Rijiju said on Monday that shuttler PV Sindhu gave a small jolt with his post, titled “I retire”.
The 25-year-old badminton world champion had posted a message on his social media accounts to create awareness about the coronovirus epidemic and that people should not take it lightly.
“You really gave @ Pvsindhu1 a small shock, but I did not believe in the power of determination. I am sure you have the strength and stamina to bring many more Lawrence to India, ”Rijiju tweeted.
Sindhu had won a silver medal in both the 2018 Commonwealth Games and the 2018 Asian Games. She has also been the recipient of Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna, Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan awards.
Last year, he won a gold medal at the BWF World Championships. Sindhu is the only Indian shuttler to win a silver medal at the Olympics.
Earlier today, Sindhu shared a slant tweet to create awareness about the ongoing coronavirus epidemic and how people should work together to defeat the virus.
Sindhu posted a long message in a Twitter post and started by saying
The Denmark Open was the last straw. I rest “. The debut pointed to whether the 25-year-old is actually retiring from professional badminton. Later, Sindhu clarified in the post that she must have given her fans a” mini heart attack ” , But he did so that his fans “sit and take notice”.
“I’ve been thinking about coming to terms with my feelings for a while. I agree that I am struggling to deal with it. It just feels so wrong, you know. That is why today I am writing to let you know that I am working. Sindhu wrote, “If you are shocked or confused, but by the time you start reading it, you have already come to know about my point, and hopefully it will also support.”
“This epidemic has been an eye opener for me. I could work hard to fight the toughest of opponents, teeth and nails until the final shot of the game. I’ve done it before, I can do it again. But how do I defeat this invisible virus in which the whole world is fine? It has been months at home and we still question ourselves every time. Internalizing all this and reading so many heartfelt stories online has given me the opportunity to ask a lot about myself and this world. It was the last straw to not be able to represent India at the Denmark Open.
Shutler then stated that she wanted to retire from this negativity, uncertainty and lackadaisical attitude towards the virus.
“Today, I choose to retire from this current feeling of unrest. I retire from this negativity, constant fear, uncertainty. I choose to retire with complete lack of control over the unknown. Most importantly, I said the badminton player that I want to retire from our standards of hygiene and our impractical attitude towards the virus.
“That being said, we should be optimistic about the light shining at the end of the tunnel. Yes, Denmark didn’t open, but it won’t stop me from training. When life comes upon you, it should be hard to come back twice . So shall I get off for the Asia Open. I refused to give up without a solid fight. I gave up without conquering this fear. And as long as we have a safe world, we will keep doing so, “Sindhu concluded.
