Gautam Adani provides support to a kabaddi player struggling to organize two meals a day

Kabaddi it is known to be one of the favorite sports played in India. This contact sport from Indian villages gained momentum in recent years when the Pro Kabaddi League was launched. Prior to the introduction of this league, Kabaddi was visible internationally through the World Cups and the Asian Games in a standard and circular format as most Asian countries adopted the sport. India has been the undisputed champion in most of these tournaments, but unfortunately, the sport is not prominent among Indian fans, and the government has not provided the best guarantees of life for the players. The pace has been slowly increasing by recognizing sports players for Padma Shri and providing job opportunities, but there is a major lack of incentives for athletes who are still on a large scale. Let’s find out the story of one of India’s star players in the game of Kabaddi who due to a faulty structure can’t eat twice a day.

What is the story behind Harmanjeet?

Harmanjeet Singh is a young kabaddi player of Indian descent who is full of potential and who has unleashed his talent in many big tournaments. Singh debuted at Vivo Pro Kabaddi League in season 7 s Gujarat Fortunegiants. Harmanjeet is a cheerful person who represented Punjab at senior national tournaments. He is one of three Punjabi players who have left a mark on the national level and has great prospects for the future of kabaddi in India.

Why has there been so much rush around him lately?

The country is ready to participate in their XIX. The Olympic Games after it became independent in 1947, India sends its largest contingent ever to the Tokyo Olympics. There is a widespread belief throughout the nation that the quality of athletes this time around will help the nation achieve its best performance at the Olympics to date. In the midst of this highly motivated peak of Indian athletes, we should remember our other stellar athletes struggling to find life for themselves.

Harmanjeet Singh is one such name in the Kabaddi area that has been fighting for its life for the past few months. The problem stems from the fact that, although there is a lot of noise among people cheering for the star when an international event approaches, on the other hand, these athletes do not have adequate space for a decent standard of living. In a country full of cricket fans, other sports have begun to gain attention where the state government promises to appoint them as government officials or some government job. The same was promised to Harmanjeet where he was to get a job in addition to his kabadija profession by the government.

That was far from reality for him, and now according to India News, “Harmanjeet is unemployed and wanders without any proper food.” This also resulted in a reduction in his weight.

How did twitter react?

Twitter provided support to the player and showed him asking for help Gautam Adani, an Indian billionaire industrialist who will help Harmanjeet on his path to becoming healthy so that he can do well nationally to make India proud. The news was well received by the audience in India, and the industrialist also came forward to present his views on the situation in a positive light.

Gautam Adani is the founder of the Adani Group, a multinational conglomerate based in Ahmedabad and the owner of the Gujarat Fortunegiants, which gave Harmanjeet the opportunity to play in the Pro Kabaddi League. Adani supports the players and wants to contribute to the growing sports culture in India. His love for Kabaddi it was evident from his tweet that read,

“Kabaddi is the scent of the land, the color of our nation and the voice of the Indians on the world stage. Every player deserves to have the best facilities available. We welcome the valuable character of the Punjab Harmanjeet and our FortuneGiants team will proudly help this talent reach its full potential. May the voice of Kabaddi-Kabaddi always remain alive! “

Strategic change should happen soon

Harmanjeet is one such person among many who are denied state jobs and face the facade of the good life ahead of us in the sports game. Singh also felt that players older than him also achieve good jobs and have a love of sports which is why he made this decision, but 1-2 in a group of many will not help maintain talent in this diverse country full of potential. Change is needed to support these talents to the fullest extent possible to help our nation grow in every sport.
