She was defeated by former two-sport ONE World Champion Stamp Fairtex.

She was defeated by former two-sport ONE World Champion Stamp Fairtex in the second round through submission, although she claims she gained a lot from the experience.

The setback, according to Phogat, hasn't prevented her from pursuing her aspirations. "I'm here with one objective in mind: to become India's first female MMA world champion. I'll do all in my power to make it happen "Phogat said.


"The year 2021 was a rollercoaster of emotions, experiences, learnings, and disappointments. I always see things in a good light when I look at them. The world is experiencing a once in a century epidemic, yet we have learnt so much as humans. As a martial artist, 2021 was one of my greatest years ever, and that will only assist me to improve. All of my victories and defeats have taught me something."

In 2021, Phogat fought five times, winning three and losing two. In April, Bi Nguyen, a Vietnamese-American, was defeated. Following her loss against Nguyen, Phogat embarked on a three-bout winning streak, showing remarkable progress with each fight.

She finally made it to the ONE Women's Atomweight World Grand Prix Championship Final, where she faced Stamp Fairtex, but lost."I put forth a lot of effort to prepare for the finals. Losses, on the other hand, might occasionally provide you with a new, yet beneficial viewpoint.

To win, I'll have to put in more effort. It's perfectly acceptable to lose. It strengthens your mind and increases your appetite. I've lost previously, but I need to concentrate on getting back on track after a setback "Phogat said.

"I've learnt that hard effort and consistency are essential, but that a good mentality and focus are even more important. Every athlete trains hard and competes, but in the ring, mental toughness and a good attitude make all the difference."

Now that the year 2022 has arrived, Phogat says she is more motivated than ever to fulfil her goals in the next year. She claims that no matter who she confronts next in the Circle, her opponent must be prepared for what she has to offer.

Phogat is motivated to begin the year on a positive note by winning big.

"You must always strive to develop and progress. Overconfidence may occur when you believe you are the greatest. Not only in wrestling, but also in Muay Thai, Jiu-Jitsu, and Boxing, I need to develop every day. I need to improve on a daily basis if I want to be one of the top martial artists "Phogat came to a conclusion.

"The next step for me is to return to my winning ways and demonstrate my abilities. I shall be fully prepared to face anyone, regardless of who my opponent is."

'E-Attorney' to help lawyers handle client information and case details easily.

By Ganesh Bhatt
A 10-year-old prodigy from Tamil Nadu's Vellore has created an app called 'E-Attorney' to help lawyers handle client information and case details easily. Through this app, users can sign in and add client documents and store other case related information quickly.
Kanishkar's father, who is also a lawyer, was facing great difficulty in keeping client details organised during the pandemic. Therefore, when the young boy had to choose a course subject for his coding project, he decided to create something that would help his father. Through 'E-Attorney', users can also contact their clients directly and the clients, who are given access to the app by their lawyer, can also easily view their case documents stored in the app.

Not only has the Queen of England long been a visitor to the racing at Ascot but she's also had the honour of having a winner of her own at the meeting.

By- Nanci SEO

Now we're into 2022, the anticipation for a new racing season is hotting up even more.

By the time the world focuses its gaze on Ascot in mid-June, records will have been broken, and new winners will have been celebrated in the other meetings such as the Grand National. However, there's nothing quite like the Royal Ascot meeting and the historic Ascot Gold Cup race, which has been running since 1807. The race is the first leg of the triple crown of thoroughbred racing in the UK, making it one of the most important on the racing calendar.

The meeting is held at the course, which is just 28 miles west of London and only a few miles from the residence of the British Royal Family, Windsor Castle. It's also been an event that the monarchy of Britain has often visited and had a personal interest in. Not only has the Queen of England long been a visitor to the racing at Ascot but she's also had the honour of having a winner of her own at the meeting as noted by Town & Country. Will there be another Royal victory this year? Let's look at some of the favourites for the headline race, the Gold Cup.

Trueshan

The six-year-old gelding's pedigree means he's a real threat to all his other riders at Ascot this year. Trueshan has previous experience of winning the course; he won in 2020 at the British Champions Long Distance Cup, with his jockey Hollie Doyle commenting, 'he went through the ground like a tractor, he loved it.' Going into 2021, he was much fancied after looking strong in the lead up to the meeting but was pulled when his trainer Alan King deemed the ground to be too firm. He had a successful season, winning the Goodwood Cup and the Prix Du Cadran in France in October. So he's in fine fettle going into 2022, does that mean it's finally his year to taste Gold Cup success?
