“Twenty 4 of my trainees have got a supervision job. Last year my trainee Himasnhu Sharma won a china in nationals. His mom works as a residence help. Whatever we warranted or borrowed from my friends was spent on my daughter’s propagandize price and training of kids like Himanshu. Perhaps, it was their good wishes that helped me. Now we am carefree of removing my pursuit behind (with a Punjab police). Seeing these kids win medals was my biggest satisfaction during these 6 years and even yet we could not win some-more medals in my career, their medals are my medals,” he added.
