Palak Kohli battles all odds to brace for Tokyo challenge

17-year-old Para badminton prodigy Palak Kohli not only shares the same surname as her country's cricketing star Virat Kohli but also has the same zeal and determination as to the batting maestro. Seven months have passed, and she has been away from her home and family in Jalandhar, a district in the state of Punjab. She hasn’t taken any break from training either since last year. No Christmas, New Year or Holi, the Indian festival of colours, nor has the current lockdown due to COVID-19 pandemic pinned her indoors.
