This teenager has achieved what other teenagers dream to achieve of. He is a right handed opening batsman and bowler.

He was just 14 years old when he ones scored 546 runs off 330 balls that included 85 fours and 5 sixes for his school Rizvi Springfield, in a minor competition in 2013. In November 2016, he was the part of the Indian under 19 team which won the Youth Asia Cup in Sri Lanka.  Shortly, he managed to make a debut in Ranji Trophy where in the semi-finals against Tamil Nadu, he struck an awestruck century in the second innings and took his team to victory with glory.  In September 2017, he became the youngest player to score a century on Duleep trophy debut and breaking the record which was previously held by Sachin Tendulkar. That is when he became the captain of India’s Under-19 squad for the 2018 World Cup. During the tournament, he was sold to Delhi Daredevils for INR 1.2 crore (USD 187,500 approx) at the 2018 IPL auction.

He surely has got all the needed character traits for becoming the next upcoming youth icon. He’s got just the right amount of enthusiasm for the game to drive it off till the very end, mental strength, A balance and dignity beyond his years, Unremitting hard work and discipline.

Another Youth sensation these days is,

Young Indian cricketer, Shubhman Gill who caught everyone’s attention at the ICC under 19 cricket world cup. The vice-captain is screaming out to the Indian selectors saying “I’m all ready for the next step.”

He was born on 8th September 1999, In Fazilkapur, Punjab.  He shot to fame with 418 runs at an average of 104.50 in 2018 ICC under 19 world cup. He was also a favourite in the 2018 IPL auctions, and was picked by Kolkata Knight Riders for INR 1.8 crore (USD 280,000).

Gill easily looked the best batsman among his colleagues at the World Cup, comfortably overhauling even Prithvi Shaw, the 18-year-old Mumbai batsman who had the media houses buzzing with a whooping five first-class hundreds to his name. Gill’s bottom-handed technique, made fashionably successful by Virat Kohli among many others, allowed him to play in a similar mould. He scored runs briskly, mixing quick singles and doubles with powerful hits across the ground, and stood out as much for his batting acumen as he did for his fielding prowess.

The Rajasthan Royal – Devendra Jhajharia

Blog By : Ipsa Singh

“My ability is stronger than my DISABILITY”

We all can’t deny the fact that we all complaint about the things we do not have or the things we are running short of, we do not pay attention to what we have. The real lesson of life lies in the learning that we should be happy with what we have because what we have might be something what someone else is just dreaming of. Most of us just sit back and complaint or blame the god or the situation or not being in our favour r giving us a flaw. But then there are a handful of some great enthusiastic souls living amidst us who not only inspire us but also prove that any physical disability cannot be greater than the will, courage, hard-work, and dedication that an individual possess in himself/herself. Your physical disability can never really become a barrier in the path of achieving your goal until and unless you make your disability conquer the fire in your heart.

Devendra Jhajharia is a Rajasthan based athlete with an amputated hand. At the age of 8 he lost his left hand by touching a live wire. On top of it He belongs to a very poor family. All these circumstances did not make him weak or deter his will to achieve big goals. He believed in himself and his hard-work.

In 1976 he was spotted by the Dronacharya award winner coach R.D. Singh by his performance during an event in his school for sport’s day function. That was the day, since then there has been no looking back and stopping for him.

“The problems in life are just stepping stones, that make you sore even higher heights.” Is that statement this athlete proves to be true. All the bad days that he faced, all the problems that he went through were just like stepping stones he swiftly and gracefully passed through and came out like a furnished gem.

He has been making his country extremely proud. In 2004 he qualified javelin throw at the Athens Paralympics. And that was when he brought glory to his country’s, family’s and his own name. he created history.

In his first Paralympics only, he broke the world record of 59.77m, his throw was of 62.15m. with that he became the second Indian to win a Paralympic gold medal in the history of India. Around a decade later he qualified for Paralympics in Rio, with a clear cut thought that he will repeat his performance of Athens in Rio. He not only stood by his words but also broke his own record od 62.15m, by giving a whooping throw of 63.97m., and with respect to that he becomes the first Indian the hold the prestige of having two gold medals from the Paralympics.

Critics are there all over the world, no matter how much good you do, how dedicated you are, people are hypocrites and will always land up looking at all the negative signs and put your glory down, and if they can’t find any negativity they start assuming things that never really exist and same happened with this magnificent man. But he again proved he is one of his kind, he kept quiet and allowed his javelin not only speak clear but shout out to the world.

“Whenever I went for competitions, people would either look at me with pity or say that I’ve been recommended here or had some source. But then when they see me throwing my javelin they come to me and tell me- I am a champion.”

The Ace – Vijendra Singh

Blog By : Ipsa Singh

“DECIDE. COMMIT. CONQUER.”

Vijendra Singh Beniwal, an Indian professional boxer was born on 29th October 1985 in Rewari, Haryana.

He is the first ever Indian to win a medal at Olympics in boxing. He is that iron rod, who has been beaten by time and molded into an ornament in the crown of India. He is an extremely humble human,and strives to be a perfectionist. His approach towards life is very simple. Even after achieving so much n life he stands without any greed and arrogance like any other ordinary being.

He belongs to a very poor family. His financial situation couldn’t stop him from making his dreams come true. He outlaws a myth that only rich people are entitled of glorious, wealthy, and a promising future. He proves that hard-work and dedication isn’t defines by your financial status, it is something an individual is born with and enhances his skill with it, in order to become a successful individual.

He became a boxing enthusiast by following in the foot steps of his elder brother, who himself wanted to become a boxer but got himself employed in the Indian army. Vijendera Singh also turned to modelling for part time to incur money. He is an example of what you can call “glory of struggle.”

He got his first recognition after winning a medal at state-level competition. Then led to the chain of success in sub-junior nationals in 1997 and 2000 by winning gold and silver medals.  It was in 2003 that his career as a boxer took a shoot when he won a silver medal in the Afro-Asian Games. Commonwealth games (CWG) surely show some favour to him, the ones that were held in Delhi in 2010 proved to be really productive for him as he went on to grab a bronze medal followed by a gold in Guangzhou Asian Games.

Soon his boxing style, hooks, and cuts were compared and contrasted with Rocky in the Rocky film series. Since then he won a lot of medals along with some outings at some international events.

Undoubtedly vijender singh is a maestro in India. He is not only bringing the laurels in India but also woking hard to enlighten and guide the young talent in the field of boxing in India. He recently won the WBO Asia Pacific super middleweight title after defeating China’s Zulpikar Maimaitiali. He dedicated his win to India-China friendship at the time of tension between the two countries over the infamous Doklam issue which conveys the fact as a clear truth that he is also a responsible citizen of India.

He is the perfect role model  whose footprints the new generation should follow in most of the aspects of life.

The Inspiring Lady- Harmanpreet Kaur

Blog By : Ipsa Singh

“Leadership is not a position and a title. It is an action and an example.”

Harmanpreet Kaur Bhullar, born on 8 th march 1989, in Punjab, Is a part of established Indian
B women, India Green women, Punjab Women (India), Sydney Thunder. She is an all-
rounder cricketer.

She proves that, gone are the days when women were confined to certain petty
stereotypes. She has break through all these filthy holding back chains of the society and is
all set to inspire young women in border of her country and beyond. She is an extremely
extravagant example of perfection. She proves “Hamari chhori kisi chhore se kam nai.” She’s been excelling in her field like a pro. She is the lady hero with taking in her name the renowned and prestigious Arjuna Award, which adds up to explaining how focused she is.

She stands up holding this inspiratory position to so many young girls out there who are
afraid to step out, who are willing to fight against the odds put up by the society. She is that
individual along with her team who outstand the crumbling myth that women aren’t meant
for the physical work, or the field work, or any other manly work.

She is that magnificent lady who has proved that women can be heroines without makeup
and just by sweating it out, out on the fields. She’s defines and represents the potential of
Indian women internationally and stands up firm to first make her country and then her
family Proud.

She’s a path-breaker too, having become the first India cricketer – male or female – to sign a Big Bash League contract with Sydney Thunder in Australia. The deal came about on the back of an impressive showing during India's tour of Australia in January 2016, where she made a 31-ball 46 to script India’s highest-ever T20 chase. In June 2017, she became the first Indian to sign with Surrey Stars in ECB’s Kia Super League. Since then she has been at the center of advertisement campaigns, endorsements and central contracts.

She swears by her idol Virender Sehwag’s mantra of ‘see ball, hit ball.’ She represents the
new-age Indian women's cricket part of a generation. Harmanpreet broke through in 2009, but it wasn’t until 2013 when she stamped her class. Her century against England at the World Cup, albeit in a losing cause, earned her plaudits from opposition captain Charlotte Edwards. Her career graph since has skyrocketed since. In April 2013, she was handed the captaincy when Mithali Raj was rested for the limited-overs series against Bangladesh, making it clear that she is the one in waiting for the job. In November 2016, she replaced Raj as captain of the T20 team for the series against West Indies.

Punjab had offered the DSP post to her in July last following her outstanding performance in
the Women’s World Cup 2017. She yet again defies yet another saying, “not all heroes wear
capes, some where the colour of their country and uniforms too.”
She in true terms inspiring what is known as the better half of creation, “WOMEN.”

 

 

 

 

Jhulan Goswami: 200*

Blog by: Raj Kishan

She is 5 feet 11 inches tall, 120 km/ hr bowling, and No.25 jersey wearing great Indian all rounder from our own India: She is Jhulan Goswami. Jhulan Goswami became the first women bowler to get 200 wickets.

Jhulan, 35, was born in Nadia, West Bengal. She comes from a middle class family. Former football fan, Goswami, took up cricket at the age of 15. Although she had her first encounter with cricket when she saw the 1992 Cricket World Cup, but what, left an impression on her was Belinda Clark’s victory lap after Australia vs. New Zealand 1997 Women’s World Cup final. Cathryn Fitzpatrick, former Australian Women’s team bowler, was one of the reasons she decided to pursue a career in cricket. Watching the former pacer in action with cricketing greats like Belinda Clark and Debbie Hockey, she decided to take up cricket more seriously. Coincidentally, When Fitzpatrick retired in 2007, Goswami took on the title of being the quickest bowler in the women’s game.

Gozzy, as she is called by her teammates, is known for her accuracy and ability to maintain that consistently over long spells. She uses her height to generate good bounce. But it hasn’t been easy. She used to wake up at 4:30 in the morning to catch the local train and reach the practice session. She lives 80 km away from Kolkata, where the practise session took place. Many times she missed the train and couldn’t make it to the practise but she never gave up. Like other Indian parents, Jhulan’s parents’ too wanted her to concentrate more on studies than cricket.

Then there are always sexiest “well-wishers.” “I was asked aren’t you ashamed to play cricket?” Jhulan said in an interview. “My first brush with sexism came as a child in Chakdaha, West Bengal, when boys of a nearby locality refused to play with us seeing a girl in our team. That was the first time I felt belittled.” Well are you now? I am pretty sure they’ll be eating their words now.

Indian spearhead, debuted at the International stage in the year 2002 at the age of 19. She was given Indian captaincy in 2008 and in 2010 World Cup earned India the third place. She held the captaincy till 2011. She is also quite a handy batter known for hitting big sixes.

Virat Kohli the fitness icon this title is right for the guy who doesn’t care about anything just focus on his work. When he steps into the cricket ground with oath to win every game for India it doesn’t matter how much aggressive he is but that thing motivates the team and him as well.

Virat Kohli is perfect example of Fitness. In many interviews and on chat shows it was discussed that how he maintains and some said he don’t eat regular daily food which common people does, he take juices of fresh vegetables and fruits, some said his water is imported from some other country etc. But no one born with fitness it is just how you will work for it matters some give up after some time and some don’t.

Virat Kohli trains every part of his body whether it is mind or physically he just don’t want to leave the ground without before winning the game. He have made many records in just short period he have broken many records due to that many legends got shock that how can be this much good in just a little time can achieve this much runs. He is still in his young age and about to get those achievements which some legends didn’t achieve.

If we talk about his age  and records you will realize or think that how? Real answer is fitness if you are fit you are ready for every challenge but if you are not fit then be ready to face challenges which will stop you in achieving your goals of success. Being fit is you can work for long time but being unfit you just thinking about present not about future as well that how you going to work for future goals.

Kohli takes rest from the cricket only when his body really needs not when he wanted. Now he is captain of country so work load itself saying stay fit and motivate other cricketers as well to stay fit. Now days Indian cricket is in safe hands since they got leader who is fit and record breaker this thing is enough for them.
