August 11, 2022: It was a crowded, warm and extremely joyous welcome that Nayanmoni Saikia received at the Borjhar airport in Guwahati on Thursday afternoon.



Nayanmoni who hails from Golaghat in Assam, was one of the team members of the four-member Indian Lawn Bowls Women team who bagged gold medal at the just concluded Commonwealth Games 2022 held in Birmingham.



Along with a large crowd of well-wishers and officials, Nayanmoni’s mother-in-law and her little daughter were present at the airport to welcome her.



A grand state welcome has been arranged where Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, Assam Sports Minister Bimal Bora and other senior officials and dignitaries would be present to welcome and felicitate Nayanmoni.



Meanwhile, the Assam Forest Department has decided to promote her to the post of DSP. She is currently employed in the Assam Forest Department as a Constable.



Nayanmoni was born into a middle-class family in Golaghat, Assam. She was always passionate about sports and she started her career in sports through weightlifting. However, due to leg injury and deteriorating performance she chose Lawn Bowls because this sport was a game without injuries.
