Also, Big B has celebrated his birthday on 11th October and has appraised both of them for their struggle and hard work they have put in to get there they wanted from the beginning.

Did you know that Manasi has won Rs. 25 lakh on the KBC? But her this achievement did not overshadow her hard work and determination that she followed to become a pro in Badminton like her father as she started playing badminton with her father at the age of 6. Over a month ago, Manasi had won the Para-Badminton World Championships which was a day before when PV Sindhu won the World Championships but still she did not get much attention among the people which Manasi has got.

Manasi’s real life is filled with lots of struggle. Fighting all odds, she managed to win the gold. Though she doesn’t have her left leg as she lost that in a truck accident. But she wasn’t disheartened even after happening this. She continued with her passion for Badminton and started rigorous training to become well trained. She used to practice and play along with a prosthetic leg. In 2014, she won a silver medal in her first national-level tournament. While in 2015, she has won gold and all because of her struggle and hard work.

Despite facing so many hardships in her life, she managed to struggle and achieved all that she always wanted. We all could imagine that playing with one natural leg is not easy at all. We must say athletes like her should be encouraged and praised for what they have achieved from her struggle. She should also be given equal importance like everyone gave to PV Sindhu as she also deserves to be in the limelight.

We must support and encourage them to get better ahead. We wish you all the best Manasi. May you get the best of all in the future.

Son of A UP Truck Driver Rinku Singh Makes His Way To Wrestling

No one knows what you are going to get next in your life or what has life planned for you? There are many examples that are a perfect example that shows nothing is hard in life to achieve. It just needs your strong will and determination to get the success in your life. Doesn’t matter whether you are rich or poor, lives in a village or city. Today, we will talk about a man, Rinku Singh who hails from a small village of Bhadohi in Uttar Pradesh who is very inspiring for all of us as his hard work pays off and he is doing great in WWF.

Let me tell you Rinku Singh is not any celebrity, he is a son of a truck driver who has worked very hard to make his way to World Wrestling Entertainment’s (WWE) developmental territory NXT.

He has nine siblings in all who all lived in a one-room house with not enough water and electricity. Though facing so many hardships in life, he has managed to achieve what he wanted.

He says of his interest in the sports, “As a little boy, growing up in a village in Uttar Pradesh, I had just one dream which was to represent my nation in the Olympics. Back then, I was really interested in Javelin throw and track and field and also qualified for the India Camp for the Olympics.”

But life has planned something else for him he did not get what he had planned. He didn’t get through in either of the sports and had decided to make a change and take up some other challenge in life.
