A proud Deepika, in her post wrote: "Papa, your contribution to Badminton and Indian sports is immeasurable! Thank you for your inspiring display of dedication, discipline, determination and years of hard work! They don't make you like you anymore...We love you and are proud of you! Thank you for being you!"
