Rahul Bose born 27 July 1967 is an Indian actor, screenwriter, director, social activist, and amateur rugby union player. To be in so much pain and yet show such terrific levels of resilience was admirable. Then, to read, hear, see and follow this incredible story of Real Kashmir and watch the home crowds turn up in such large, overwhelming numbers to offer support, clearly for me was the sport story in the year gone by. In their unforgettable sojourn I think coach David Robertson's effort deserves a special mention.
. I happened to meet her after the Games and just listening to her talk about the experience -- the infected tooth and the bolts of pain that she could feel shooting right up to her head with every step she took and yet weather all that over a gruelling two-day, seven-event discipline like heptathlon is unbelievable. Here's this Scottish guy who has formerly turned out for Rangers and Aberdeen, was a find of Sir Alex Ferguson and had never been to India before, who turns down offers of working with a bunch of international teams and picks the Kashmir job instead. It is called as Baahubali: Before The Beginning. I'm not sure if I can call it 'fairy tale' but the way the team conducted themselves and fought like they had nothing to lose was everything one watches sport for.
Rahul Khanna responded with a picture of his 13-year-old self enjoying some down time with one of the four-legged friends he mentions. Bose has appeared in Hindi films such as Pyaar Ke Side Effects and Jhankaar Beats. He also played the antagonist in the 2013 Tamil-Hindi film Vishwaroopam. If I had to pick one athlete who really impressed me last year it has to be Swapna Barman with her performance at the Asian Games. I'd have to throw in all the adjectives I possibly can here and say it's gritty, brave and inspirational.
So far, I've made over 20 trips to Kashmir in my life and one has got a sense of the kind of lack of opportunity there is for youngsters to pursue a sport.
