Asian Games bronze medalist sells tea for living

New Delhi [India], Sept 7 : Harish Kumar, member of Indian Sepak Takraw team that won bronze medal at the Asian Games 2018, sells tea at his father’s shop to support his family.
Speaking to ANI at his small tea shop, Harish Kumar said, “I have many family members and there is a very meagre source of income. I help my father at the tea shop to support my family. I dedicate four hours every day between 2 to 6 for my practice. For my future, I want to get a good job to support my family”.
Talking about his struggles and initial association with the Sepak Takraw game, he said, “I started playing this sport from 2011. My coach Hemraj brought me into this sport. We also used to play with a tyre when my coach Hemraj spotted me and introduced me to the Sports Authority of India (SAI). Thereafter I started receiving monthly funds and kits. I practice every day and will keep on doing it to bring more laurels for my country”.
Harish’s mother, Indira Devi also talked to ANI about adversities under which she supported her son to pursue the game.
She said, “I have brought up my kids with a lot of struggle. His father is an auto-driver and we have a small tea shop. My son also works at tea shop to assist his father. I am very thankful to the government for providing food and accommodation to my son. I am very thankful to his coach Hemraj who has supported my kid to achieve this accomplishment.”
Harish’s brother, Dhawan also expressed his gratitude for the government support and requested for a government job for his brother.
He said, “There were times when we did not have money to pay our rent. His coach Hemraj took him under his training and admitted him to the stadium. Later Sports Authority of India supported us by giving monthly finances and sports kits.. I also urge the government to give my brother a government job so that he can support our family.”
India registered their best ever medal tally (69) at the 18th edition of the Asian Games in Indonesia.
