In the event that you need to demonstrate something you need to avoid here and messy governmental issues,” says Seema.

Seema was in India recently for the Organization Cup, her first rivalry in the country in more than two years. She was top pick to sack the gold until Punjab’s Kamalpreet created a record-breaking toss in abundance of 65metres. Seema, albeit baffled, acknowledged the second spot nimbly.

Things facilitated gradually and I would have been truly glad had I qualified for the Olympic Games here,” says Seema, a double cross Olympian who has a joined count of six decorations in the Province Games and Asian Games.

Regardless of the battles, Seema feels reflection and otherworldliness helped in the mending cycle. “I read a ton of books on Osho and otherworldliness. I’m a tremendous supporter of Osho and hear his messages routinely. It presents to me a ton of harmony and peacefulness which assisted me with getting these testing times,” she says.
