Let's join hands with a hero who is trying to give back to his sport despite physical disabilities.
Chandra, as he is affectionately known, is a former Indian Table Tennis Player and an Arjuna Award Winner. Just 16 days after winning Arjuna Award, India's top most recognition for sportsmen, he slipped into coma after a freak hospital incident. His Table Tennis career was cut short and he was left with permanent movement related disabilities.

Chandra was a ferocious fighter during his playing days and people admired him for his never give up attitude. With the same attitude, he has walked out of his house today, to set up an academy to coach and mentor young Table Tennis players.
He is looking to raise funds to build basic infrastructure and add amenities to his coaching centre. He has vowed to dedicate the rest of his life to this academy in a bid to produce the table tennis superstars of tomorrow. 

He will use the funds collected here to:1) Invest in more Table Tennis Tables and replace the old ones
2) Replace the rubber floor
3) Subsidize the kit, clothing and shoes of the players
4) Susidize the travel and stay arrangements for the children for various tournaments.
5) Build a compound wall around this coaching centre.

We are inviting people to make financial contributions to his academy.
This is a story of sheer grit and determination. Let us join this hero in his pursuit by contributing as much as we can.
