Arnav Katija – Std VII
It was a usual day. I was browsing the web and exploring a new interesting game. However, within a short span, I got bored. I then borrowed my mum’s smart phone and began to listen to music; soon, I felt restless, so I kept it aside and took the football. It took me a while to settle down with it, but slowly it increased my hunger to helm it. My senses got charged, my body was filled with energy, a desire to control the ball, the need to learn skills and to do the best, engulfed me. Since then, I started playing and thinking about Football everywhere – while walking, eating, studying. I even started imagining how my shadow would look, if I kicked the ball in a certain manner. It was thrilling and exciting. It was a positive boost to my life. I felt very energetic. All of a sudden I was ready to play football any time, be it day or night, anywhere! It was a very wonderful feeling. I didn’t want to prove anything. I just wanted to pursue my passion.
Finally, at last, I had figured it out, that I was born to play soccer, rather than wasting time on a smart phone (which was never smart) or a computer, to entertain myself. It was my passion towards the sport which sparked the brightness within me.
My institute plays a vital role, in shaping and building me and others too, to demonstrate the best in us and take our skills to the next level.
I have the support of my family and mentors to follow my passion.
I have a small dream of making my school proud!
