It's always nice to bring a medal back home, nothing beats doing well for the country", she said.
" It's a massive confidence boost with the Asian Games around the corner. We would love to carry this rhythm there as well", she added. Dipika further praised her partner Harinder.

Elated this partnership is working well. We go back, train harder work on a few things we need to look forward to doing better at the Asian Games".
