New Delhi: Indian team performed brilliantly at the Asian Games as the contingent bagged 69 medals which included 15 gold medals. While, Harish Kumar, winner of bronze medal in Sepaktakraw has resumed his day job which is to sell tea at his father’s shop situated at Delhi’s Majnu-ka-Tilla.
He says,”since there are more people at home and less people to earn, I sell tea. I want a job now so that I can support my family.”
“I have many family members and there is a very meagre source of income. I help my father at the tea shop to support my family. I dedicate four hours every day between 2 to 6 for my practice. For my future, I want to get a good job to support my family,” Harish was as quoted by ANI.
Harish said that he was introduced to the sport back in 2011 when his coach asked him to play it.
“I started playing this sport from 2011. My coach Hemraj brought me into this sport. We also used to play with a tyre when my coach Hemraj spotted me and introduced me to the Sports Authority of India (SAI). Thereafter I started receiving monthly funds and kits. I practice every day and will keep on doing it to bring more laurels for my country,” he said.
