An Athlete Too!


Imagine getting ₹300 all for oneself, some 55 years back. That’s what I got for coming 2nd in Shot Put in Kerala School’s Games, competing without any practice or training.

To spend that much money, when paise 25 was getting three idlies, one big steamed Kerala Banana and a glass of tea. Lots of friends were required to enjoy the booty.

There started my love affair with shot put which lasted till I passed out from University.

Now the affair is restored and I won a gold in shot put today in Kerala State Masters Games in Kollam.
