Description

About the Book: Dipa Karmakar: The Small Wonder

On August 14, 2016, a young girl, Indias first female gymnast to compete at the Olympics, landed the Produnova that took her to the cusp of an Olympic medal. She came fourth yet soared into the hearts of millions across the globe. Dipa Karmakars fourth-place finish at the Rio Olympic Games was a defining moment for Indian sport, which had barely cast a glance at the sport of gymnastics as a medal discipline till then. Dipas journey from Tripura, an oft-neglected sporting outpost, to the national consciousness and Indias highest sporting honour, the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award, is one of grit, determination and a stubbornness to beat the odds..

About the Authors: Bishweshwar Nandi, Digvijay Singh Deo, Vimal Mohan

Bishweshwar Nandi is a recipient of the Dronacharya Award and is one of Indias most iconic coaches. A five-time National individual champion, Bishweshwar captained the Indian Gymnastics team on six occasions, including the 1982 Asian Games in New Delhi. A product of the famed assembly line of Tripura gymnasts created by the late Dalip Singh, Bishweshwar gave up lucrative job opportunities from government agencies to return to Tripura post his playing career. Since then he has been employed by the Government of Tripura and is posted at the Tripura Sports Council as a deputy director. Bishweshwar has been the man responsible for the emergence of Dipa Karmakar as one of the top gymnasts in the world. He has been guiding and honing her talent since she was ten. Together Bishweshwar and Dipa have redefined the goalposts for Indian gymnastics which culminated in Dipas historic fourth-place finish in the womens vault at the 2016 Rio Olympics. When not assigned to the Indian team as coach, Bishweshwar stays in Agartala with his wife Soma, who is also a gymnastics coach and son Akash..
