Earlier, Tendulkar shared a video featuring Harshad Gothankar showing off his carrom playing skills. With no hands, the man stuns with his sheer brilliance and adeptness. He is playing carrom with his foot and does it with such ease that his talent will leave you speechless. The one-minute-long clip shows Gothankar, who is an auto driver’s son, aces all the strikes while using his right foot to play the game. He successfully made the coins go in the pockets. Towards the end, other players lean to touch his feet as a sign of respect.
The batting maestro expressed his admiration and now the video is being widely shared and appreciated online. Sharing the video, Tendulkar pointed out the difference between impossible and possible. He said it is in one’s determination and the differently-abled player is an example of that. Tendulkar added that this man chose ‘I am Possible’ as his motto. Further mentioning that he loves the player’s motivation to find ways to make things possible, he said it is something we can all learn from him.
