Here’s another pair then, after Sania-Shoaib and Saina-Kashyap, who transmutes the bonds of friendship forged over playing sports at the highest level into the weightier ties of matrimony. We are talking about top archers Deepika Kumari and Atanu Das, who grasp the vacant space offered up by the pandemic to do the needful in Ranchi. Strict social distancing was followed for the 60 guests, along with a liberal use of masks and sanitisers. Deepika, a former World No 1, is currently No 9; Atanu is not as elevated. We hope they spur each other on to find bull’s eyes.
