Dive In


Chhori ka naam Antim isliye rakha tha ki aage ladki paida na ho kyunki 4 ladkian ho gayi thi (We named our daughter Antim so that we don’t get another daughter as we already had four daughters). But we always treated her as our most loved child. Before going to the world championships, she told us that she will return with a gold medal and will become the first Indian woman wrestler to do so. Antim has become Pehli (first) in the wrestling world today.

That’s what the mother of 17-year-old Antim Panghal said when her daughter became the first ever Indian woman to win gold at the Under-20 World Championships in wrestling. She beat Kazakhstan’s Altyn Shagayeva in a powerful 8-0 victory to seal the deal. You can see the clips from the final here.

The TLDR: The latest scandal in our nation’s fair capital combines its two great passions: netagiri and daaru. It is also a sign of the escalating confrontation between the two parties in the run up to the Gujarat elections in December this year—and the 2024 Lok Sabha polls looming in the horizon.
