Paddler Bhavinaben Patel has won a silver medal in table tennis in the ongoing Tokyo Paralympics. 

While everyone is praising Bhavinaben Patel, Amul welcomed her victory with a lovely doodle. Amul released a photo of the Amul Girl dressed as Bhavinaben posing with a silver award across the table on the microblogging site Twitter.

Add gold to silver!” It was captioned, “Paddler wins historic silver in Tokyo Paralympics!”
