“I wanted to become a football player when I was younger. But everything changed when my father had separated from our family.
I had to shift all my focus from playing football to finding a job so that I could provide for my family. It’s been three years since I have been working, and now my father is also back. But during this time period I have changed a lot.
Now, I see myself as a working man rather than a young football player, also it would be so wrong if I leave everything behind for my passion and start playing football like they show in the movies.”
“Do you think you did the right thing?”
“At times you are left with no options. You have to stand up and take the responsibility for your people. Sometimes the people in your life need you more than your dreams.”
With your help today, India can
nurture future sportspersons.
Petition the HRD Ministry to make
sports a compulsory subject in
schools. Sports is education too.
