Sport is often considered to be a domain that is dominated by the physical attribute of players. What meets the eye is what sells, and that is why often we miss out on the mental aspect of sport, an attribute that is of paramount importance in a profession that is brimming with uncertainties. And family, especially mothers, play the most important role in shaping a player’s mental health, in preparing them fight those uncertainties that guard sport.
On the occasion of Mother’s day, so many Indian sportspersons took to social media to express their love and gratitude towards their mothers.

The sporting world salutes all mothers who have taken care of things back home so that their children can go out and live their dream of playing for the nation. It is this support that makes these stalwarts what they are on the field/court.
