Dipa Karmarkar, Sakshi Malik, PV Sindhu and Aditi Ashok - the Indian power girls, have made the whole nation proud at Rio Olympics 2016.
Though Dipa narrowly missed the medal by a 0.15 margin, she won a million hearts. Sakshi opened India's account to become the first Indian to win a medal in the Rio Olympics. While Sindhu scripted history to become the first Indian woman to win a silver in the Olympics.
To salute the hard work and dedication of India's daughters NewsX has started a campaign - 'Betikhelao', so that young girls get encouraged to pursue their dreams.
