Heroes of EduSports

Everything happens for a reason | Anand | Heroes of EduSports

They say Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. I come from a family of sportsmen. My father is a Kabaddi player, my elder sister works as a Hockey Coach. I have been involved in multiple sports like Kabaddi, Football, Discus Throw and Judo. With achievements like being a state runners up in Football and a third place holder in Judo at the esteemed Anna University, I was all set to take off after the completion of my studies.

Of course, we Indians understand the importance of physical fitness and thus, the inclusion of sports in our daily routine. But not everyone has the luxury to follow it. In a developing country like ours, money supersedes everything else.

I bagged many medals for boxing. These include 2 golds in sub-junior nationals and a hattrick of Golds in senior state championships. 

But, my story isn’t about how I went further to pursue boxing. Instead, it is about how I lost my momentum and more in a single blow. I never compromised with my dedication towards sports, but destiny chose to take me somewhere else.

I hail from a family of doctors and engineers. My folks also wanted me to tread a similar career path. But, I wanted to work in the domain that I loved the most - Sports. Their concern was about the kind of money that I would be earning in sports vis-a-vis any other desk job.

Being a girl from a middle class household in Uttarakhand with 2 sisters and 1 brother, my parents were very protective, even of my career choices. I was interested in pursuing a career in physical education, while my family believed that I would be better off landing a white collar job after a BBA course.
