How many of us know Shiva Thapa? Not many we guess. To be precise, this young lad is the new boxing sensation, the hope of India in the upcoming Rio Olympics.

Wait! did we tell you that he was the first boxer to qualify for Rio Olympics, he was the youngest Indian boxer to qualify for the 2012 London Olympics as well.

Watch his struggle and his journey, from a small village of Assam to the centre stage of World’s biggest sporting event, the Rio Olympics, 2016. Witness how a lean young man turned into an able fighter and stalwart boxer, who is perspiring hard to bring glory to his beloved nation.

As India’s boxing hope rests on Shiva, he needs your support and encouragement to fulfil his dream, to fulfil India’s dream. The Logical Indian applauds Adani group for bringing out the unheard story of this young athlete.

It is the time we extend our support and admiration to Shiva, it is the time we tell him that he is backed by a billion hearts that are beating for him. It is time ,we say that we are proud of his hard work and dedication.

It is time we Indians stand for Shiva and say in one voice #GarvHai

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.

Thank you!

Please also ensure that change begins at home by
pledging to practise/teach gender sensitivity
