Preface to the Unmukt story
Unmukt Chand was pleasantly surprised to see the attention India's Under-19 World Cup win has received. But as Vijay Lokpally in the Hindu finds out, the success and recognition has come after years of preparation.
Like any youngster, he loves the various eating spots and time permitting hangs out with friends. Such occasions are rare though. But don’t be surprised if you see this young man engrossed in a book. He is a voracious reader and committed to meditation twice a day. Nothing distracts Unmukt from his cricket. “Absolutely nothing can shake my resolve!” Unmukt has grown into an attractive cricketer and a credit to the game. Also, you can still find him leaving home early on non-match days for his training when most people would be snuggled in bed.
