My teachers congratulate me for my game. The school has made a range and division in the campus. I am in the tennis team too," Ojaswini said.

"Due to coronavirus I cannot go to school now and when I was six years old I use to play in Chandigarh at 5 o'clock and then use to go to Mohali so that I can practice at my home. When Mohali Golf Range reopened, I started practicing here. I hope to win the World Championship which will start in August," she added.
