Hi Racketlon players in india please meet these great badminton players of 1960 and onwards. These r the players who inspired many players of future. They were magicians on badminton courts and treat to watch. Pure talent and grace. Humble and down to earth. Unfortunately we didn’t have videos or advanced cameras to capture their art. They had victories over many world class players of that time.

We wish their families all the best in life. Regards cheema kk
