Akhilesh and the Positive Change in his life by Sports:
The main episode starts with Aamir speaking that we read dreadful stories in newspapers about different crimes – rapes, murder and we get more sadness when we learn that the person who committed the crime is a young boy between 12 to 15 yrs. He speaks of meeting a person recently whose life was filled with crime but his life has got a big difference. The change in boy happened with different kind of solution but has infused positive change in him. The first Mumkin Hai story is about Akhilesh Paul from Nagpur who used to live in small neighborhood (slum, Basti). Akhilesh got involved in many crimes – drugs, alcohol at a younger age and there were police complaints registered against him when situation worsened. Moreover, they were gang fights and other gang group members were after him. His life came to a point that if he tried to escape from other gang then police would have made him their target, and if he escapes police, then other gang members will kill him. He was not getting an idea how to save his life.

Akhilesh comes on stage and Aamir asks him that his life was about to end since he was facing police and also other gang members. Akhilesh speaks of his dream that he wanted to become a Bhai and fight and threaten somebody. He starts to speak how his life changed by reminding that a professor Vijay in a college nearby his former gang centre used to see him often. The professor sent a peon to him and asks the young boys of the gang whether they want to play ball (Gaend). Akhilesh and his group were confused and the peon (the representative of Prof) informs them of giving 5 INR which is the amount given by the prof. Akhilesh speaks of playing football and they were aged 14-15 years and speaks the professor used to gave them 5 INR and didn’t speak further. They played for 15 days and used to get money daily. One fine day, the professor told them that he didn’t have money to pay them but Akhilesh’s friends were interested to play football and they make an agreement to play the football without money and just asked the Prof to give them just the football. They play football for 2-3 days and when they went to ask for the football, the professor declined to give them. Akhilesh speaks about having addictions for gambling, drinking, cigarette, threatening others and now they got addicted to football. His life started moving forward and he speaks of being in a fix once when some gang members were attacking him at some property dealing spot. To avoid clash with police and gang , he took shelter and hidden himself in a graveyard and stayed for few days. Soon, he felt hungry and used to eat leftovers from beggars. He begins to cry after becoming much emotional.and remembers how he ate those leftovers on the 31st December – New year’s eve from the poor and regards them as the one who have helped him in that distressing time and no big influential person have helped him.

Sports Infrastructure and Sportspersons running Sport bodies:
In 1995, the Chinese government have started and adopted a Physical Health Law of the People’s Republic of China. The purpose of this law is to make sports an important part of Chinese people (AV courtesy: Footage factory).

In city areas, outdoor public parks, fitness centres were built and this program was designed to improve the health of the common people and another benefit was that many talented sportspersons started coming to the fore. They were given special training and its result was seen in Beijing 2008 Olympics where they won 50 gold medals which is more than 3 times their gold medal tally of Summer Olympics 1996 where they won 16 gold medals. China took the first position in 2008 Olympics. Aamir speaks that 6 Lakh stadiums were built in China and in India we might not have even 6,000 stadiums then how can we compete against other countries.

Aamir asks him why our youngsters doesn’t get opportunities ? Rahul speaks that every sport has an organization which runs it and it is given a monopolistic status by the govt. That body is being told to run and carry out sports activities and its their responsibility to develop and promote. All the tax-payers money is being given to those organizations by the govt and they are run by politicians who hold top positions there and he refers them as termites. He adds that there people from all political parties are same and cites the example of Common wealth games responsibility was given to Suresh Kalmadi who has built a stadium for 986 crores whereas BCCI builds one stadium in 120 crores. Rahul speaks that Geeta, Babita, Shubham doesn’t come by the system but because of people like Amit Luthra and also because of their own struggle and passion. Aamir asks when the system will change and asks about the solution ? Rahul replies that the sports law and Swaraj and suggests that players should govern them and they should be selected and chosen by the people and not by politicians because of conflict of interests. He suggests that people need to speak and be heard. Aamir then understands that sport players should run the sport bodies.  And then asks the viewers – Should Sporting bodies in India run only by competent sports persons themselves ? If you agree with it, then they can be part of Mumkin Hai campaign and give a missed call at 1800 833 4001.
