A tribute to my Coach
‘A Salute to Mr. Shukla’

From a puny little water-boy to the captain of the Vasant Valley School basketball team, my coach, Mr. Shukla has always been there for me - as a source of inspiration, a guide, and as a friend; with his pieces of advice before the game, his encouraging words at practice or what touched me most, was his being the first one to wish me on my birthday. 
I joined the team 6 years ago with our captain Karan Jeet. I went for every game the team played for 3 years as the official water boy, learning every move of my 'idols' on court and heeding every word said on the sidelines. In my 4th year I got small chances to play. In my 5th year, I was part of the 'starting 5' and in my 6th and last year I was made captain. In my 6 years on the team, my coach kept me up with theconfidence he had in me … 
I remember the day, 6 years ago in practice when I got the ball and Tariq said, "Let him go, he's just a kid." Mr. Shukla got irritated and sent him for forward rolls saying, "He's not just a kid, he's the future captain." These words always inspired me to practice even when it was too hot to step a foot in the sun and they helped me when I was cursed by the team.
Mr. Shukla played a major role in turning me from a guy who got 2 calls a day … to the Sports Captain of Vasant Valley School! Thank you Sir!
