Hockey is essential for financial stability in life for Karthi

Bengaluru, January 10 (IANS). Ariyalur village, 350 km from Chennai, Tamil Nadu, is known for its fertile soil and cement factory, but S.K. Karthi decided to pursue a career in hockey.

A brilliant performance in the Junior National Championship by Tamil Nadu led him to join the Indian team camp in 2018.

He is currently part of the Junior Men’s National Coaching Camp. Due to the poor financial condition of the house, Karthi knows very well that a brilliant career in hockey can give him a job and financial stability that he can help his family.

The 19-year-old striker said, “My father works as a watchman in a government college.” His salary is 5000. My elder sister is married and I have a younger brother who has passed 12th standard. I know that there are many players in the Indian team who come from different financial backgrounds and I am no different, but hockey has helped them.

He said, because of hockey, he got recognition and good job. Like the rest, my aim is to play hockey for the country and I am working hard to make it to the junior Indian team.
