Former Indian hockey player Ajit Pal Nandal adopted 21 girls from his native village
Former Indian hockey player Ajit Pal Nandal has recently adopted 21 girl students from his native Bohar village in Rohtak. These girls study in the classes from VI to XII in a government school. Ajit was inspired by the cricketer Gautam Gambir, who decided to bear the educational expenses of the children of slain CRPF personnel in Sukhma.
Nandal would take care of the entire educational expenses of these girls up to their class XII exams. He would also train them in sports and support their expenses in terms of equipment and fees vis-a-vis sports tournaments. Nandal runs a modern gymnasium and a stud farm in Rohtak. The other girl students of the school who are keen on sports can also avail the facilities in his gymnasium for free.
Girls have ten times more potential than boys in all aspects, and people just need to identify their talent and guide them in the right direction, said Rohtak SP, Pankaj Nain.
