Arundhati and Guru Sai Dutt win titles

Rising badminton stars Arundhati Pantawane of Maharashtra & R.M.V. Guru Sai Dutt of Andhra Pradesh bagged the women's and men's singles badminton titles at the recently concluded National Games badminton events at Ranchi in Jharkhand.

Arundhati won the Gold medal defeating P.C.Thulasi of Kerala 14-21, 21-17, 21-15 in a tough 3 sets, while Guru Sai Dutt prevailed over Aditya Prakash of Karnataka, 16-21, 21-10, 21-18 in exactly one hour, to clinch the mens gold.

Interestingly both the winners, Arundhati & Guru Sai Dutt are known for their agressive, attacking style of play. Like a noted freedom fighter once said 'He who aggresses, takes the initiative, wins half the war'.

Arundhati also had recently emerged the runner-up at the National badminton championships held last month at Rohtak, that was followed by a Silver medal finish at the Estonian Open.
