That’s why I have reached this point today. Tasnim has trained at Gopichand Academy for three years. After this she is taking training at Guwahati Institute. At the same time, Tasnim’s father told that the daughter started playing badminton at the age of six. Tasnim has so far won 22 tournaments in different categories.
