To share what you have with those in need is one of the basic human values. Most of us might have forgotten the goodness in giving and sharing but some people find it to be their duty. Reflecting these sentiments, Ajit Pal Nandal, a former hockey player, adopted 21 school girls in Rohtak.
The 21 girls were identified by the government school from classes VI to XII in his native Bohar village. Nandal has taken the responsibility of the girls’ education until they complete their school education as they come from a humble background. He is also going to train them in sports and support their expenses in terms of equipment and fees vis-a-vis sports tournaments.
Good deeds are like a chain reaction, one leads to many because of the positivity they induce. Nandal tells that he found inspiration in Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir who also decided to look after the education of the children of slain CRPF personnel in Sukhma.
Nandal also runs a modern gymnasium and a stud farm in Rohtak. He extended the generosity towards other girls of the school and announced that they are welcome in his academy to get trained free of cost. He is also co-member of Task Force constituted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi with an eye on the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
A small ceremony was organized to announce the adoption of these girls. Pankaj Nain, SP Rohtak, was the chief guest at the ceremony. He said that girls have a lot of potential than boys, and all they need is a great mentor to make them realize it.
The former international hockey player is quite perturbed by the violence prevalent in Rohtak against women and wishes to change the status quo. He has also sworn to inspire more sports personalities to adopt girls for the greater good.
