Q 2. Your journey from a PGDM graduate to becoming a sports professional is an inspiration to pursue your passion. Can you please throw some light on your journey?

Ans: Talking about my journey, If I go down memory lane, I have been a sports fanatic since my school days. I left sports due to a major accident.

I realized my passion for sports and decided to pursue my dream of a sports club.

Q 3: Since you are a sports enthusiast, what memories do you recall from ABS that helped you pursue your passion?

Ans: I remember participating in every event and activities during my college days. I was enthusiastic about anything and everything whether it was kasschet, athleema, freshers’ party, conference. I had an ambition for sports since I was young. I got placed in Decathlon which I consider as my achievement and best memory of college life.

Q 4. How did the management learnings and skill set you acquired during the PGDM course help you to start your sports club?

Ans: I would say, theoretical knowledge coupled with practical exposure pave the path to learn the right set of skills. Handling responsibility, being spontaneous in approach, and quick decision-making are some of the managerial learning that helped a lot in building my foundation. I remember, post-COVID, there were a lot of apprehensions about starting the club again. However, with an effective approach and passion for never giving up, I stood up again and looked for more avenues to relaunch my club. Today, we have collaborated with major rock concerts, sunburn festivals, drive-in cinemas, and many more thrill activities.

I believe my passion for growth, and being able to deal with people and negotiate with them were the major learnings that prepared me to start my club.
