London Olympics bronze medallist Saina Nehwal decided to donate six lakh rupees -- Rs 50,000 each - to the families of the 12 Central Reserve Police Force jawans killed in an encounter in Chhattisgarh last week.
Saina, who turned 27 yesterday, said she is pained by what happened last week and this is a small contribution to the families who have suffered irreparable loss. Going by the pictures Saina posted on Twitter, it looks like the former World No. 1 had a working birthday. One of the pictures show her mother Usha sharing a cute picture with her daughter, while Saina made it a point to feed birthday cake to her coach Vimal Kumar. Good girl, we say!
