What's the story?

The most remarkable thing about Rajyavardhan Rathore, is his compassion and empathy which enables him to reach out and help whenever the need arises. Trust the ex-Olympian to extend a helping hand when he was informed through social media about the difficult medical condition which a young Assamese football player, Sumit Rabha is facing.

In case you didn't know...

Sumit Rabha, a budding football player from Assam has been plagued with serious illness following his kidney failures. Not having the good fortune to cover the medical expenses, Rabha's family was in dire need of financial help to carry out an emergency kidney transplant.

The heart of the matter

The Union Sports Minister, Rajyavardhan Rathore, who is an ex-Olympian himself and a silver medalist from the 2004 Athens Summer Olympics, has been dynamic in helping out whenever and wherever possible.

On seeing the repeated tweets from the Guwahati City FC team asking him to help out Sumit Rabha, who plays in a local academy in the city, Rathore immediately got to work.


He ensured in another tweet that he will be informing the SAI representatives to look into the matter and also bring the case to the attention of the Ministry of Sports who will be extending all their support in this case.

Now that Rathore has dutifully reached out to the helpless young footballer, we can hope that young Sumit Rabha would undergo a kidney transplant and not suffer anymore. It's a true blessing to have the support from the government's side and it is indeed a major act of compassion on Rathore's part.

Author's take

It's needless to say just how dynamic and effective Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore has been as the Union Sports Minister ever since his tenure began. It fills us with great pride to see his attention going to the right places.

It doesn't take someone extraordinary to notice the changes that have been brought about by the Ministry ever since Rathore chaired it. With his kind of dedication to sports and his concern for all the players, India's Sports Ministry is in the safest and ablest hands.
