Unmukt Chand and his team mates did India proud when they won their third Under – 19 Cricket World Cup beating Australia by six wickets. My heartiest congratulations to the Indian team for winning the Under – 19 World Cup. Well done!
His paternal uncle, Shri Sunder Singh Thakur, a journalist by profession, had this to say about Unmukt, the skipper of the Indian team, who led from the front scoring an unbeaten century (111 runs):
“He was just four when he started playing cricket. He is very hard-working. For the past seven-eight years, he has practiced seven-eight hours a day. Kids his age go to the pubs, but he has no distractions for him.” (The Times of India, New Delhi, Monday, August 27, 2012)
What a remarkable example of grit, dedication, hard work and focus, the qualities that always lead you to ‘Excellence’.
“There is no substitute to hard work”, with these words I sign off this blog post wishing that we have many ‘Unmukts’ leading India on the path of glory and excellence…
