How the Story of Sutikshna Transformed Samarth’s Life

Introduction Due to ongoing issues with his wife, Samarth struggled to balance his personal and professional life. The constant tension at home affected his performance at work, leading to poor feedback from his manager. The stress reached a point where his manager placed him under a performance review. One evening, feeling particularly dejected, Samarth sat in his living room, lost in thought. His grandmother noticed his distress and approached him, offering comfort and support. Sensing his need for guidance, she decided to share the story of sage Sutikshna, hoping it would provide him with a new perspective.

He was not allowed to play in the 1936 Olympics as he was a sergeant and only commissioned officers can participate in games. By 1938 he became a top-notch shooting player of Hungary and the ban was also lifted by that time. Hence he became the national favorite for gold in the upcoming 1940 Tokyo Olympics.  Just a few months before the 1940 Olympics he lost his right hand when a faulty grenade exploded in his hands during army training camp.

He spent one month in the hospital to recover from the injury but we can't imagine the mental pain he might have faced at that time.
