You must have heard the name of Singh Sisters. These are the Singh Sisters, who not only brought laurels to their family in basketball but also made India proud on many international levels. Today, whom we are going to talk about in Singh Sisters, he is second in them i.e. Divya Singh. Divya Singh, at a very young age, followed the footsteps of her elder sister Priyanka Singh and joined the game of basketball. After this, he gave India several medals, hitting one of the brilliant basket shots. Currently, Divya, a former captain of the Indian basketball team, is part of the Sports Authority of India, where she is associated with the Khelo India program.
Outside the Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Khalsa College of Delhi University, a few students organized an event with Smita Mishra, a college professor and a commentator at the Commonwealth Games, in which Divya Singh was invited as the chief guest. The program was put online, in which many journalists, including alumni of the college, also attended. Apart from this, Divya’s sisters Akanksha Singh and Pratima Singh also joined this session. Please tell that Indian basketball player Pratima Singh is the wife of Indian cricketer Ishant Sharma. Akanksha is the captain of the national Indian basketball team. Apart from these, Divya’s sister Prashanti Singh is the only basketball player who has been awarded the Padma Shri Award.
Travel story shared
During this session, Divya shared things from basketball games to love life. He credited his mentors Amarjit Singh and KN Rai for their successful careers. Let us tell you that KN Rai died a few days ago due to Kovid. Divya and all the listeners paid tribute to KN Rai through this program. Divya said that her life too went through like that of children in a normal family. Divya along with her sisters has created a lot of explosion quartets in the streets of Banaras. He got the inspiration to choose a sport like basketball from his sister Priyanka. Older sister Priyanka and her husband Manish Kumar are successful basketball coaches in Indonesia with a coaching diploma in basketball from National Netaji Subhash Institute of Sports Patiala. Divya has done many medals in basketball from 2002 to 2007. After leaving the national basketball team, there is hardly any team that has not been trained as a coach. Divya has trained both men and women National Basketball Teams as a coach. Apart from basketball, Divya has a lot of interest in writing and painting as well. Divya loves writing quotes.
Time is spent with petting
Apart from this, she is passing her time during the Kovid epidemic by doing paintings. Divya says that creativity is a very important thing. During the time of this epidemic, no one should back away from their creativity. I have always been fond of learning new things. The desire to learn something new always inspires me. Talking about children’s interest in basketball, Divya Singh said that if something needs to start changing, it will have to be done by itself. The government can make laws, but people should be interested in themselves to follow them. Physical education in the daily routine is very important, because it will strengthen the physical condition of the players. One hour should be devoted daily for physical education.
This was said about the Indian team
Divya was asked when the ranking of the Indian basketball team is very low at the international level. In such a situation, what are you doing as a coach and being associated with a sports authority? So Divya replied, “Look, time is not always the same.” There was also a time that we were at number 5 in the Asian rankings. Sometimes things fall and sometimes they rise. We are trying our best to take basketball to a new level and hope that our ranking will improve. ” With this, Divya also spoke on leagues. People are less aware about basketball. Just like there is a league of other sports, if the basketball league also starts in the same way, then this game will definitely get a new place. Due to the league, sports have started getting a new identity. A league is also needed for basketball, so that many children of the country will join this game and bring the name of India to light.
Discussion on love life too
Between the games, Divya also talked about her love life. He told that he has been married to younger sisters, but he has not done so yet because he has not found any person with whom he can spend his life. However, Divya definitely told that keeping in mind sports and career, the love affair does not deviate, but in that age of choice, choice becomes its place. In the end, Divya said that it is very important to keep ourselves positive in the time of this pandemic, because if our mind and brain remain positive then any challenge can be faced.
