Mithali after retirement India Today While talking to her, she has spoken about this controversy and told how much trouble she had with it and how she came out of it. Mithali said, “When you find yourself in trouble, you cannot think well because you are going through a lot of emotions. If you want that you think with your mind not with your heart, but still you will hurt yourself. So when you are in trouble, there will be no clarity.”
He said, “You have to come out of such a situation and see as a third person so that you understand how you can react to it and also whether it is necessary? Sometimes it is necessary to remain silent. When you are discriminated against, it takes courage to come out of it. Everyone knows one side of the story. It’s okay when you feel this way because in the end I am the one who walks with the goal. I had one objective – to play cricket at a good level. I wanted to give my best for this. It’s not just about my skill, but it’s also about my mental state.”
this moment has to pass
Mithali said that sport has taught her that every moment passes. Mithali said, “I have to be in my best state of mind to give my best and come out of it. I had to get out of it. I had to come out of this anger, sadness, frustration and I did it because I realized that my goal is not to stay in these things for long. This moment has to pass, this is what sport has taught me. When you score a century in cricket, you have to start again the next day from zero. You don’t start with a century. Yes of course I felt sad at that time but I came out of it. That’s why I was able to perform what I did in the last one and a half year.”
