“Saina is the cause of national cheer and pride. Her story must inspire millions. We are also honouring Pullela for his yeoman service to Indian badminton,” said Rajeev Karwal, founder and chief executive (business and knowledge solutions),

Milagrow plans to give 5% of the sales proceeds from the special edition product to and 1% to Gopichand’s academy.

“We decided on launching the special edition products before the started, for all the medal winners and once they were back we met them to finalise the details of the special edition launches. You will hear the launches in the names of other winners soon. We are not looking for any endorsement from them but honoring them. They will inspire a billion. We feel that this initiative is a way of encouraging the athletes to give their 100% not only during but also in the future whenever they are competing,” Karwal added.
