"Sports isn't something I indulge in. It's who I am. It's a huge part of how I define myself as a person. And that isn't limited to Badminton. I've been playing something or the other my whole life, and why I'm thankful to IIT is because it gave me the opportunity to be a part of a well-structured team again, because it let me play Badminton in a systematic manner again, it made me feel things that I had forgotten about. And in that vein, I'm grateful to the people here, and I'll cherish my time here always.
P.S. A special shout out and a big thanks to Shaolin Monkeys FC for letting me play with them!"
