Nagpur : While  guiding the budding sportspersons Indian badminton legend Prakash Padukone said to exel in any sports discipline 3 'Ds' i.e. Discipline, Dedication and Determination is the formula of success. 

He was speaking during SJAN-Raisoni Achievers annual award function jointly organised by Sports Journalists' Association of Nagpur and Raisoni Group at a city hotel of Sunday.

Former Indina shuttler further said, " To become outstanding sporspeson one has to make lot of sacrifices. It is very difficult  to maintain a balance  between games and academics. Therefore the players has to become expert in time management also. 

Padukone who won the national badminton title at the age of just 16 said today's younger generation is quite lucky. They have lot of opportunities and the only need is to grab them. There  was a time when only cricketers used to excel but now the situation has changed. He said now the Central government has also become serious about sports and sportspersons and lot of private foundations and corporates are also coming forward for sports promotion and that is a good sign for development of  sports.
