Stuck amidst this lockdown, have you ever had the sudden urge to start exercising and stay fit? Maybe you can take inspiration from this eight-year-old girl, Pooja Bishnoi. She is one of India’s athletic superstars.

Staggering Achievements

This Mini Milkha Singh has already been engaged in various races and marathons and won accolades. Born in a small village in the Jodhpur region of the western state of Rajasthan, this girl is defying all odds.
