Bhavina Patel, on her way to the Commonwealth Games, wants to inspire everyone with her journey to success
“I believe when you do something with passion, you have to work hard. Consistency can give you the results as well as give 100% in the training. Anything is possible. You shouldn’t feel any pressure,” added Bhavina.

Highlighting the support, Bhavina mentioned, “The Sports Authority also gave me a robot (Butterfly – Amicus Prime), which helped me with my chop shots and it helps me get a lot of variation in my game. It helps my training a lot. Overall, I get a lot of support from all sides, government, SAI, Indian Paralympic Committee, Indian Table Tennis Federation as well as NGOs supporting me.
“After Tokyo, I saw huge changes in the government’s Paralympic policy. All the regimes are now similar for all sports. There has been infrastructural development as well as academies being set up. There is a greater awareness now. I am personally grateful to be an inspiration to some. My training center in Gujarat receives many calls every day from devotees who say they want to be like Bhavina. They think that if Bhavina can we all can. It’s a great thing for me to be an inspiration to some and I want to inspire more. I want more athletes to come forward. I want India to be the first everywhere. I don’t want to walk successfully alone. I want to take everyone with me,” Bhavina added.
