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.”

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.
