The Sky Is The Limit: Unmukt Chand Is An Inspiration

January 22, 2014 | By

I would like to share the unique specialty of Unmukt Chand’s “The Sky Is The Limit” which has given me new insights about the importance of the role of mentors and coaches. Unmukt Bhaiyya received a lot of support from his mentors and coaches who invested a lot of time and hard work in shaping and making him achieve success on the cricket pitch.

My Journey To The World Cup by Unmukt Chand

“The Sky Is The Limit – My Journey To The World Cup” is the new book by cricketer Unmukt Chand, to be launched on November 30

What a wonderful book! It has got everything from hard work to passion, from family support to dreams!

I think that Unmukt Bhaiyya has got the ability and skills of becoming a world class cricketer. The way he led the team to win  the Under-19 ICC World Cup is just amazing.

The front page of the book says that he had a routine habit of writing diary. Even after sweating it out on the field, he got the time and energy to write a diary!

His daily schedule of getting up in the early morning and doing some exercises, sprints and then facing the fast bowls of his father and uncle is motivating!

He has been a scholar, which is a huge achievement for every sportsman. Being a student I can understand that it is difficult to balance your studies along with a sport. His family has played an equal role in helping him achieve early success in his life.

The Sky Is The Limit: Unmukt Chand's New Book

“I have to make it to the Ranji Trophy squad before I turn 17.”

His parents and uncle also used to get up with him early in the morning and put in their best with him along with their individual occupation to keep him motivated and inspired all the time.

In every sportsperson’s life there are ups and downs. Some crash out early under pressure of not doing well consistently. A handful few rise after failures and they are called the real heroes in life.

Unmukt is one of those few sportspersons who did not do well in the early matches of his career but shone with great scores in the later, most crucial matches. He did not allow himself to go down with his failures but used those lessons to identify his mistakes and work on improving his performance. If you are able to conquer the negative vibes and feelings, you have won everything!

I would like to share the unique specialty of the book “The Sky Is The Limit” which has given me new insights about the importance of the role of mentors and coaches. Unmukt Bhaiyya received a lot of support from his mentors and coaches who invested a lot of time and hard work in shaping and making him achieve success on the cricket pitch.

As many people work hard primarily for their own personal interest and for getting maximum benefits, mentors and coaches work to help their protegees achieve success .

Unmukt Bhaiya’s coach Mr Sanjay Bharadwaj is a gem of a person. He helped him in every phase of his career. He is so down to earth that even after giving Indian Cricket a ‘Star’ in Unmukt Chand, he still lives a very simple life just as he used to do.

Also there have been remarks by other coaches, mentors and friends that motivated and inspired Unmukt Bhaiyya to work hard.

Now something from the cricket field. Unmukt Bhaiyya has now got a lot of experience of domestic cricket especially because of the Ranji matches. The Ranji players get to meet cricketers who have got experience of international cricket.

He is playing for Delhi Ranji team with the likes of Shikhar Dhavan, Virat Kohli, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Rajat Bhatia and many more. Sharing the dressing room with these types of personalities is a great experience. Even if you do not get a chance to play a match, you still learn a lot many things and if you get a chance, grab it and that is what he has done.

Rahul Dravid And Unmukt Chand

Dravid made a special mention of Unmukt’s “underlying respect” towards senior players as the latter was insisting on calling Dravid “Sir”.

He is a selfless person because in the book he has given thanks to all his friends and teammates who made his dream of taking the World Cup home come true. He also expresses his deep gratitude to his mother Rajeshwari who kept motivating him, worked hard on his upbringing and also loves him very much.

His father Bharat Chand Thakur has been a great gift to him because he used to get up early in the morning, taught him how to play cricket, took him to practice sessions and then taught him various subjects so that he did not fall behind in studies. This care and guidance helped him score consistently well in studies and get admission in Delhi’s finest St. Stephen’s College.

His uncle is also a great man who taught him to play cricket when he was just 4 and still teaches him to play. His interest in sports has been great which led him to blossom as cricketer.

So I would just like to say thanks to all the support he got and congratulate him for his new book.

ALL THE BEST, Unmukt Bhaiyya!

Have fun and take Indian Cricket to a new era!
