Forget B-Town Celebs, Here’s Why Geeta Phogat Should Be Your Role Model

Updated on 2 August, 2019 at 2:12 pm By

In this age of Instagram following and Facebook likes, it’s very easy for young adults to get influenced by what they see in the digital media. The photos and videos put up by B-Town celebs and models, especially women, are more often than not, the results of filters and are quite frankly, fake and untrue. Hence, to be inspired by such, would be foolhardy. If you need some motivation and inspiration, look up to the likes of athletes like Geeta Phogat. Yes, we all know her as the Dangal girl, and the daughter of Mahavir Singh Phogat. Some others may also know that she won India’s first ever gold medal in wrestling at the Commonwealth Games in 2010 or that she was awarded the Arjuna Award for Wrestling. But, what else do we know about her beyond that?
