Once her neighbour bought a new television, she went to see it,she saw something strange in it 'what is this?" she asked her brother "cricket"he replied."Cricket "she replied that word many times and something that she noted the most was the umpire ,seeing him she herself built a dream of being an umpire,she watched cricket everyday and herself learned some basics, but unfortunately her father fixed her marriage.She was married to Dr Rishik a typical Indian man.
