Story



Why am I fundraising?

My friend Shakti Ranjan is from Bihar, Patna. Although his family is settled there but he is currently residing in Chandigarh, alone ...to pursue his dreams ; to pursue cricket, after dropping out of NIT-Allahabad in 5th sem!

He was my room-mate till 2nd year of college. When it was time to register for 3rd year, he couldn't do it on time as he had received semester registration fees very late from his parents. By that time the last date for registration was already over so when he approached the college regarding registration of the new semester, they declined and told him to wait for the session to get over. 

While we decided to leverage our sources in college and talk to higher authorities regarding the matter, his father was diagonised with a brain tumor and he had to leave college immediately. His father is fine now by god's grace but he never returned back to college. Reason being, he was never interested in academics. He already had 4-5 backlogs and on top of that this new registration problem arrived.

So he decided to quit college and pursue his passion - cricket, despite us (his friends) trying to convince him to stay. I belong to a middle class family as well, but I helped him to get cricket coaching in Chandigarh because I could see the flame in him for cricket. Still now he wakes up at 5am for training, spends the entire day practising cricket ...cooks his own food, etc. As of now he is playing for the under 21 team there in Chandigarh!  ( I've mentioned his contact details at the end of this campaign. )


Now again, he needs some urgent support to buy cricket shoes for an upcoming match. While I can sponsor some money, it wont be possible for me to pay the whole amount. I request everyone to come forward and help my friend. I'm still in final year of college and If i would have been working, I would have definitely managed to get him these cricket shoes that he desperately needs. 

Link for the shoes : http://www.amazon.in/New-Balance-CK4040AV-Cricket-Spikes/dp/B00MUURKRE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1449411756&sr=8-1&keywords=new+balance+CK4040AV
Cost : Rs.7,000-Rs.10,000

What do I plan to do with the funds?

The funds will be used to get him cricket shoes (with spikes) and the rest will be with him as he is living alone there in Chandigarh. He cooks on his own and lives on a rented hostel. I think if 100 people can contribute even Rs.100 then we can achieve this mission and he will be able to pursue his dreams. The amount will go directly to him. After the fundraise gets completed, he will be able to withdraw the complete funds into his account. I'd like to thank milaap for this wonderful platform!
