Seeing too many opinions on social media does add in a lot of mental pressure on her. 

She could also not attend any international competitions due to the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, she said.

The 25-year-old athlete booked her slot in the 2021 Tokyo Olympics after breaking a national record at the Indian Grand Prix held in Patiala, last month.
