Inspiring stories of 4 sportswomen for Teenagers

4 Indian Sports women from whom every teenager can learn some or other things

In olden times women were highly respected, in fact they were treated as goddess Laxmi. I can recollect a famous saying by Margaret Thatcher who served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom for 11 years, “Any woman who understands the problems of running a home will be nearer to understanding the problems of running a country.” But, unfortunately with passing time drastic changes are observable. There is an increase in violence and crimes against women. On every 11th of October International Day of girl Child is observed. In today’s modern era too, we all are bound to observe such days to eliminate gender abnormalities, and spread awareness. In order to keep a track of situation, the coming generations mainly teenagers must be taught to respect individuals be it men or women equally.

So here are the stories of 4 Indian Sports women from whom every teenager can learn some or other things:

Deepa Malik

She is undoubtedly an epitome of strong will power. What teenagers can learn from her is always stay brave and believe in oneself. She is paraplegic (chest below paralyzed), and strong enough to cut down all social norms. Deepa is the 1st Indian Woman ever to win a medal at a Paralympic Games. And  with lifetime personal best performance of 4.61 metres she has won a Silver Medal in Shot put F53 category. She was honoured by Arjuna Award, and she has also been conferred by prestigious Padma Shri award. Till date Dipa has won 58 national & 23 International medals across all disciplines.

Dipa Karmakar

One should always look at the positive side, this is a famous saying. Dipa Karmakar is an Indian artistic gymnast who literally followed this. Dipa started practicing gymnastics when she was only 6 years old. She had flat feet which affects performance and is an undesirable physical trait in a gymnast. Amazing fact is through constant practice and training, she was able to develop an arch in her foot. Dipa became the 1st Indian woman to win a gymnastics medal in 2014 Commonwealth Games. In the vault event of FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Challenge Cup, she became the first Indian gymnast to win a gold medal at a global event.Dipa has also received Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award, Padma Shri, which is the fourth highest Indian national honour and so many more such awards. Teenagers, never lose hope and remember like Dipa, always believe in yourself and focus on your strengths.

Mary Kom

MC Mary Kom is a sporting legend and what teenagers can learn from her is patience & perseverance. Most of us might not even dream what she has achieved. Kom faced so many struggles since childhood and as a teenager too. But she never quit and juggled all her duties. And today after facing all obstacles strongly she is the most successful boxer in the history of the World Championship among both men and women. And she is able to set amazingly new standard in amateur boxing. She has also received various awards like Padma Bhushan (Sports), Arjuna Award (Boxing) & Padma Shri (Sports) and many more. Indeed she is Magnificent Mary.

P. V. Sindhu

The queen of badminton is another daughter of India who is surely a motivation to teenagers. And what a teenager can learn from her is how she manages to spread positivity, and stay calm. As she herself started playing badminton at the age of 8 years only. She won the doubles titles at the Sub-Junior Nationals in the under-13 category, she won the gold medal in under-14 category. Another achievement is at the age of 17, she won the Asian Junior Championship. She has recently become the first Indian to win a gold at the Badminton World Championship. Sindhu has constantly proved her mettle as an ace badminton player at every stage. 

So to subtly end it all, I am adding an inarguable quote from Diane Mariechild, “A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.” So to all the teenage girls out there never underestimate yourself and power within you.

संतुष्ट और खुश रहना चाहते हैं तो जीवन में ये बदलाव लाएं

अगर आप संतुष्ट और खुश रहना चाहते हैं, आंतरिक शांति का अनुभव करना चाहते हैं, तो यह महत्वपूर्ण है कि आप अपने जुनून और जीवन के उद्देश्य को समझें और सीखें।

आप अपने जीवन से कितने संतुष्ट हैं? आप इसे और बेहतर कैसे बना सकते हैं? ये सवाल अक्सर आपके दिमाग में आते होंगे? हम आमतौर पर खुशी को भाग्य या परिस्थिति से जोड़ लेते हैं। कुछ लोग खुश दिमाग के साथ पैदा होते हैं और कुछ लोगों को चिंतामुक्त जीवन और प्यार करने वाला परिवार मिलता है। खुश रहना संतुष्ट रहने का एक अहम उपाय है। इस उद्देश्य को पहचानने, स्वीकार करने और सम्मान देने का महत्वपूर्ण काम सफल लोग ही करते हैं। ऐसे लोग यह समझने के लिए समय निकालते हैं कि वे यहां क्या कर रहे हैं और जोश-उत्साह के साथ आगे बढ़ेते हैं।

आप भी जीवन में अधिक संतुष्टि पा सकते हैं, जानिए कैसे-

स्वस्थ जीवन जीना: स्वस्थ जीवन शैली जीने में व्यायाम, उचित आहार और धूम्रपान-नशे की लत से बचें। अपका तन जितना स्वस्थ्य रहेगा उतने ही मन भी रहेगा। स्वस्थ रहने से आपकी मानसिक तंदुरुस्ती पर भी बहुत असर पड़ेगा।
अच्छी शिक्षा : जीवन का अर्थ सीखने और जानने से समझ आती है। नौकरी पाने के बाद शिक्षा को रोकना नहीं चाहिए। कुछ न कुछ नया करते रहना चाहिए। जैसे आप डिस्टेंस एजुकेशन कोर्स में दाखिला लें, ऑनलाइन लर्निंग पोर्टल्स से सर्टिफिकेट कोर्स करें या पढ़कर खुद ही सीखें।
सामाजिक समर्थन: युवाओं के लिए सामाजिक समर्थन का स्रोत अलग-अलग हो सकता है जैसे दोस्तों से लेकर परिवार तक, साथी, सहकर्मी, सामुदायिक समूह या कोई करीबी संबंध। इस संबंध में प्रेमिका या दोस्त हो सकता है। ये सभी जीवन को सबसे ज्यादा संतुष्टि देते हैं।
कोई शौक विकसित करें: कोई ना कोई शौक अपनाएं। ये कुछ भी हो सकता है जिसमें आपको दिलचस्पी हो। लेकिन अगर आपको यही समझने में कठनाई आ रही है कि आपका शौक क्या है, तो ऐसे में आम अलग-अलग चीजें करें। यानी वो करें जो आपको पसंद हो।
सकारात्मक रहें: सकारात्मक सोचें। अगर जीवन में संतुष्ट महसूस करना चाहते हैं तो परिणाम भी सकारात्मक ही होगा। वर्तमान में जिएं, आपके पास जो है उसकी सराहना करो और दूसरों से अपनी तुलना करना बंद करो। इस बात पर ध्यान दें कि आप अपने बारे में क्या पसंद करते हैं या आप किस चीज में अच्छे हैं और उसी पर आगे काम करें।
