This was the last photo that I could get before losing my mom forever! It always gets me all emotional to talk about my mother. I can only tell, that the abyss in my life is her absence. I am sure, she'd be standing right besides me, if she was here today amongst us. . Respect her, listen to her & love her enough as she deserves more than you could ever give back. Happy Mothers Day to every mother in the world! . . . #mothersday #happymothersday #motherhood #missyousomuch #motherlove #feelingsad #feelingemotional #athlete #indian #sports #fitnessmodel #strong #believer #lifeisajourney #survive #nomatterwhat #😭

I have not heard from the relevant authorities about the request I made yesterday on social media. But, I have received such immense support from all over that all you guys have made my cause, your own. . I am truly blessed to have such well-wishers. Thank you all for all the support. This obviously gives me more strength to face the challenges and struggles which I am yet to face in life. . #Kabaddi #Sportsman #HaryanaGovt. #haryana #Proud #Indian #India #Champion #Support #Gratitude
He was also positive about a gold medal at the 2018 Asian Games as well.
“There’s no lack of quality in the team’s defence. Players come and go, but the team remains the same. Today, I’m a part of the team. But tomorrow, perhaps some younger player will take my place. All we want to do is to win gold for India at the Asian Games.”
