India is full of talent but people often judge others on the basis of their personality, fluency in the English language, and many other factors. People in our nation are also popular for their obsession for fair skin. Every other brand these days is launching fairness creams. Even foreign brands try to target India with their fairness products knowing the obsession that is flowing in the generations.

This time cricketer Abhinav Mukund has become the prey of this obsession. The cricketer who has been playing cricket since the age of 10, has become a big a name in the cricket world today. In spite of all his achievements, he became a victim of racism on the internet.

It all started when Hardik Pandya posted a victory tweet with his team.


Soon Pandya’s tweet got flooded with racist replies. From phrases like “Kaala kalute” to “South k aise hote hain“, people shamelessly wrote every possible demeaning thing for Abhinav Mukund.


Replying with an emotional yet hard-hitting message, Abhinav proved that he is the real champ.  Here’s what the cricketer wrote.

Later, in a series of tweets, Abhinav also mentioned that his post was not to gather sympathy. Rather, he wrote the post to make people understand that he has struggled a lot to achieve what he has today and people should talk about his talent instead of the tan that came with his hardwork.

Take a look at the tweets Abhinav posted:



Soon, people like Virat Kohli, Manoj Tiwary and many others started praising the cricketer for this much-needed reply. Here are some of the reactions Abhinav’s reply got:



Well done, Abhinav!
