Good Sports : Doing Flips in a Sari

Parul Arora, a national gold-medal winning gymnast from Haryana, has received acclaim recently for her sari-clad flips. Videos of her stunts have gone viral on social media.

“Young girls avoid wearing saris as it is difficult to walk and sit in it,” Arora, 23, told the Hindustan Times recently. “By undertaking this front flip in a sari, I smashed all taboos surrounding a sari-clad woman. Women can do wonders if they are guided well.”

Her first few sari-clad flips were unsuccessful, but with practice, she mastered the stunt. “To be talented is one thing, but everything requires hard work,” she said.
