Other information FARMING DIFFICULTIES
In order to fund his athletic aspirations he works on his family farm, but in March 2015 unseasonal rains and hailstorms severely damaged their crops. "We were banking on the money from selling wheat to fund my training. But the crop got damaged. I was hoping to sell wheat, part of which I would use for my training and equipment needs. Since March it has been a hand-to-mouth existence for my family, If we don't have a good harvest again I don't know how I will make both ends meet. I have a dream of representing India at the Olympics, but my current financial situation requires me to put as much effort on the farm as I do in training. (indianexpress.com, 10 Jul 2015)
