This didn’t end here.
When he already doing so much of hard work with this dedication then he thought of taking it to another level by joining yoga classes under Acharya Mr. RANJEET SIR for gaining more flexibility that would help him in performing dance moves with more ease. After 15 days of training, he shattered the world records. Who thought his dedication will gift him with creating a world record in that field which he joined just for becoming better in dancing.

we talked to his father and he is very overwhelmed with his son’s achievements and he wants him to continue his journey in this field but the sad part is they didn’t get any financial support from the state government. This is not the first time that a talent is being ignored by the government. Rahul has achieved so much with his hard work and still wants to continue his journey but they are ignoring some platforms where he can make state and country proud just because of lack of resources. His future goal is to take his country to world level in yoga and dancing but without any financial support, it is not possible for a middle-class family to took such load. A famous saying is INSPIRATION STRIKES ANYTIME ANYWHERE that is why we must support this type of talent which is still hidden among us so that their dreams never die and achieve whatever they want in their life. Who knows one day they will become an inspiration for millions & that will be a proud moment for you as well.
