July 1, 2017: An Indian woman is a fragile piece of beauty or a bundle of mental, delicate? Is that the picture you frame in your mind? Well, now you will think twice!

The 21-year- old Bhumika Sharma from India has broken the stereotypes of her age and has won hearts by winning the World Bodybuilding Championship at Venice. Her muscle power shows she is so much more apart from being a former “Miss World” from India.

Sharma who hails from Dehradun had participated in World Bodybuilding Championship in Italy, where she competed against 50 women from various parts of the world to secure her place as the winner. There were 27 other Indians too who participated in the tournament. She did set the stage on fire in all the three rounds that included individual posing, body posing, and fall in.

She says, being from a sports background has helped her a lot. Her mother, Hansa Manral Sharma was the head coach of the Indian women’s weightlifting team. Initially, Bhumika opted for shooting in sports. Her parents wanted her to pursue a career in shooting rather than weightlifting.

Soon, she met with an inspiring teacher and that is when she decided to shift from shooting to weightlifting. She was able to absorb the techniques well through her hard work and determination.

Her mother helps her from time to time and give essential tips. Her coach Bhupendra Sharma also helps her to stay positive for her competitions. This crown was a major milestone in her career. Apart from following strict schedule, she has also gone out of her way to flex her muscles.

She is preparing for World Universe Championship which will be organized by National Amateur Body-Builders’ Association (NABBA) of United Kingdom in December this year.

The Prime Minister said that there were unlimited possibilities of mutual cooperation between the two countries and “we can avail the benefits of our capabilities in the field of business, pharma, oil, gas, IT and space”.

“The cooperation between the two countries has an ability to create a golden future in sectors of water, land and space. You are all India’s messengers. Your contribution is a bridge which connects both the countries,” Modi said in the event.

Modi said that practices like yoga can further enhance the relationship between the two countries.

“The meaning of Yoga is to unite. Yoga connects us with ‘wellness and happiness’. It led to overcome thousands of kilometres distance between India and Argentina and has been uniting the people of both the countries.”

He invited Indians residing in Argentina and their friends to visit India and understand the country in a vast way.

“All the Indians living in Argentina should come to India with their friends (and participate) in ‘Pravasi Bharatiya Divas’ programme to be organised in Kashi in January 2019. As the Ardh Kumbh will be going on at the same time in Prayagraj, you can observe the Indian culture, the face of a changing India and also a New India on these occasions.”

In the event, Modi said that issues such as global economy, sustainable development, climate change and economic fugitives, which are of interest to the entire global community will come up for discussion at the two-day summit that will begin on Saturday.
