Since she is at home like many other athletes due to the Coronavirus pandemic, she got time to find this throwback picture of her brother and her enjoying on a beach as kids.

On Sunday, she shared this picture with her 1.3 million Instagram followers and wrote: “From the treasure trove, bhaiya helping me balance while my feet are planted in the sinking sand. The story hasn't changed a bit. Always like a rock, my supportive big brother! #priceless #throwbacksunday.” The post since then received 1,02,845 'likes'.
