Do what is right, not what is easy | Abdul Lateef | Heroes of EduSports

The most important thing I’ve learnt from sports is fair play. There’s no victory that is more valuable than one’s honesty towards the game. I’ve been on the receiving end of unfair play at very key junctures in my life, and it is shattering to say the least. 


In this competitive world, it takes a bigger person to stay true to one’s ethics and let go. It all evens out in the end.

I would like to share one such recent incident when I was working with a leading school in the city. Everything was going great until one day when the management decided to terminate the contract with EduSports. They wanted to try another similar service. Within three months, the school started to get complaints from the parents about the sports regime that the kids were subjected to. The school management called me to ask if I could leave EduSports and join the sports training firm that they were now under contract with. I declined. They offered me a handsome pay hike too. The school could not wait for the entire year until the completion of the academic session to resolve the parents’ complaints and were quite desperate to get me back on board. However, I did not break the trust of my employer and my seniors at the workplace and politely declined, stating that I can’t join the school without EduSports being on board. Finally, they called my boss with a special request to post me as a trainer and started an after-school camp until the end of the session as a special tie-up with EduSports. Righteousness prevailed.
