Video: The Unknown Golfing Geniuses of Bengal
August 14th, 2015
My friend Hemanshu Rathod and I love to travel to the unexplored corners of our country. It was on one of these trips that we came across the incredible story of the Chalsa Polo Club run by the children of the local tea plantation workers. Being golf enthusiasts and filmakers ourselves, we decided to bring out their story as a film.
The sheer talent these boys have is simply amazing. Despite being armed with just our smartphones and a very basic handy-cam, we decided that the world needs to see this.
I am sure that talent like this exists all over the country and it is our responsibility to nurture this talent. Personally, I will be doing all I can to discover more sporting geniuses who will bring glory to our country.
The response to the story of these genius boys has been humbling and enriching. “Hi Mr Danny, my name is Matty, an 11-years-old from Vermont, USA. I just wanted to email and say this was epic.” said an email I received from this boy somewhere in the USA. We have also received enquiries from the organisations of some legends of the game like Ben Hogan and Greg Norman.
In November this year, we will collect all the donation and equipment we have received on behalf of the boys, and go to deliver all that to them personally.
Dear Logical Indians, please share this video as widely as possible, so that we can bring the story of these real life geniuses to the nation.
