India’s World Cup-winning cricketer is now a vegetable seller
What a day! This was two years ago. Came home with the World Cup. The state of being swept away by the tide of greetings and greetings. Naresh Tumba India’s World Cup-winning cricketer is now a vegetable seller who was one of the heroes who chased down 306 runs in the final of the Blind World Cup against Pakistan in 2016.
The life of this World Cup-winning cricketer has changed in less than two years. Now he sells vegetables to support his family. The cricketer can be seen in Jamalpur Market in Ahmedabad, India.
Tumba, 29, is responsible for carrying five family members on his shoulders. Being blind, he did not get any job opportunities. Did not get any kind of financial help. Mahatma Gandhi received little money by working as a day laborer under the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act. But how long with that money! Being forced to come to the city to sell vegetables to take the helm of the world.
Tumb lamented, ‘When the Indian team comes home after winning the World Cup, the government and the state government flood the book for them. But where is that excitement for blind cricketers like us! Society never looks at us at a glance.
