After she returned to her home post, she was seen doing something that no one could have ever believed if it wasn’t filmed. The new track and field sensation was seen playing traditional folk instruments at her house in Kandhulimari near Dhing, Assam. While everybody sang the traditional folk songs of Assam, the sprinter beat the Nagada (traditional drums) in perfect sync with the mood.

This showed how she is still deeply connected to her origin. Although she is a sports sensation for the rest of the world but at home she is still the same old Hima. Her humble act made her even more lovable and inspirational. It is because of acts like these, the tradition and culture are still alive. Our country is diverse and has various cultures and traditions. Our job is to protect them as they truly define our origin and set of values. It keeps us connected to our nation as well. She also reminds us that a person’s feet must be planted in their own country but their eyes should survey the world.
