    She won our hearts this weekend and deserves to have a place for her fans. First fanfest, please tell me if something is missing or can be added so I can edit.

    She was so lovely, her love of skating shone through even with the difficulties her lack of suitable training caused...

    OMG, that was so nice! ! Harshita is such a sweetie, and her favourite skater is Nastya Tarakanova, she's got good taste! I also love her motto! "I skate to express not impress" I hope we see more of her. Amazing that she not only has to spend 4 hours (there and back) going to the (only!) rink in India, but it's such a tiny rink too! That's dedication.

    Anywho, I thought it was great to see an Indian skater at JGP (I have seen skaters from India entered in skating competitions, but they always seem to withdraw before hand - not sure why). Best of luck to her in the future!

    What an amazing girl.
    It is with those with courage like Harshita, the development of the sport begins in countries where competitive fs is nonexistent.
    I'm sure she inspired some girls in her country, and she truly deserved the applauds and reaction she got.
    I hope Harshita and her mom have lots of great memories of this event.

    Wow Harshita has only been skating for 3 years, trains only for a few hours on weekends and competes in Pairs, Dance and Ladies? That's so impressive! She skates really well for someone with her training conditions. Harshita's presentation is not far away from girls who jump doubles. Hope she can inspire more young skaters in India. It's such a big country and they have only one small rink, despite the fact that they could contribute a lot to this sport.

    A brave, determined young woman indeed!

    she certainly has the spirit. She was lovely. I hope she continues training, she is still young and she could make something of it.

    She is amazing and brave! So dedicated while just being 13 also despite her motto she really impressed me
    Apparently she will skate at Asian Open Trophy International! Who knows... maybe she will attract attention of some sponsors or Indian government ready to help her! People like her are the ice breakers not only for themselves but for future generations too!

    I hope Harshita gets the resources and help she needs to enable her dreams to materialize. Yes, it was an amazing moment to see such braveness, but all things considered, the I.S.U. or any willing coach/skater/official should help Harshita and her partner to grow and improve. I cannot wait to see how much she will improve with more training because there is raw talent and drive, the people around her just need to harness it correctly. Best of luck to this amazing girl.

    An article of Harshita on a local newspaper: http://www.lakeplacidnews.com/page/c....html?nav=5007

    It talks about the JGP, her costumes, her struggles with ice time in India. It is very complete and nicely written. I liked this part specially

    Her costumes, sewn by her local tailor were decorated by her mother, who accompanied her to the event.
    Aaaaaaaaaah this is so lovely Mama Rawtani has excellent taste.
