Rohtak | Updated: August 19 2016 10:52 am Sakshi Malik’s family members celebrate her bronze medal win in Rohtak (Source: Express Photo by Jaipal Singh) Related News MAIN Street in Rohtak 70 km northwest of Delhi is a typical bustle of snack-food stalls and clothing books and medical stores With just one prominent exception — a Subway outlet the only one here Thursday is Raksha Bandhan and a busy day but the franchise owner normally a fixture at the store that opened six months ago isn’t around Sachin Malik is busy elsewhere He has been up since the previous night greeting family members neighbours wellwishers and media They have been arriving at the family home in Sector 4 since 3:30 am when his sister Sakshi Malik won a bronze medal at the Rio Olympics The medal was India’s first at the Games and the first by an Indian woman wrestler at the Olympics “It was Sakshi’s idea to start the restaurant She had travelled a lot and felt there was a business opportunity So two years ago when she knew I was looking to start a business of my own she made the suggestion Also she really liked sandwiches” says Sachin three years older than his 22-year-old sister Sakshi’s contribution did not end with the suggestion “It’s a long process to be allotted a franchise When they got to know that I was the brother of Sakshi Malik who had won a silver in the Commonwealth Games it made things easier” he says “The investment was close to Rs 70 lakh I had to take a home loan the rest came from the family Sakshi of course contributed a lot Was a small town like Rohtak ready for a international restaurant It took me a year to plan and assess the possibilities Sakshi was the one who pushed me” he says But then Sakshi was always one who had dreams bigger than what a girl from a small town with a modest family background in Haryana could reasonably hope to have At their home family members say Sakshi was always meant to be a wrestler While mother Sudesh was an anganwadi supervisor and father Sukhbir a Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) driver it seemed talent had skipped a generation Paternal grandfather Chaudhary Badlu Ram whose garlanded visage glares sternly at the celebrations was a famous wrestler He was also elected sarpanch of Mokhra village thrice Sakshi spent the first four years of her life living with the patriarch in the village Mokhra is far from a paradise of equality as a sex ratio of 822 (even lower than the state’s 879) would suggest But as Sakshi’s cousin Swati recalls the little girl expected far more “When my grandfather would take us around the village everyone would respectfully call him sarpanch ji and pehelwan ji I think Sakshi liked that and wanted to get the same respect” says Swati Sakshi eventually returned to her family in Rohtak and around the time she moved to Class VI grew determined to take up sport seriously Sudesh took her to the Chhotu Ram Stadium “Sakshi was insistent that she wanted to be a wrestler In particular she wanted to wear a singlet” says Sudesh But there was a problem Women’s singlets were particularly hard to find — Sudesh eventually found a cheap set in Delhi which Sakshi wasn’t particularly happy with Then again in 2005 women just didn’t wrestle in India — Guru Chandgiram had begun coaching women in the face of immense hostility in Delhi just a few years before For coach Ishwar Dahiya who had immense passion but little of Chandgiram’s prestige coaching in Rohtak’s Chhotu Ram Stadium was even more of a challenge Now a white haired 60-year-old with a huge grin on his face Dahiya recalls less pleasant times “I was told that I was mad to try and have boys and girls wrestle together Kya sher aur bakri ek ghat se peete hain But I could never think that women were the equivalent of goats And I was right wasn’t I Hasn’t Sakshi turned out to be a lion” said Dahiya Age 12 Sakshi was only the fourth girl to begin wrestling in Rohtak says Dahiya But barbs would still be thrown “There were times you heard unpleasant things That this wasn’t a sport for women; that her physique would be damaged and she wouldn’t get married But we did our best to make sure Sakshi never heard any of it It helped that she was so focused on the sport She never wanted to come to weddings and functions And while it seems strange it made sense because she would have to deal with relatives who weren’t supportive” says Sudesh Sukhbir made sure Sakshi only returned to Mokhra on her terms “I only took her back when she began winning medals at the international stage Once you become successful all the gossip is worthless” he says “More than anything you have to give credit to her mother If Sakshi had to get up for practice in the morning maasi would get up along with her and take her to the stadium She would then buy fresh fruit and nuts and make a shake out of it just so that Sakshi would get her protein as soon as she finished her training” says Sonia another cousin As their daughter’s career progressed relatives say Sudesh convinced the family to sell their home to move to a locality near the Chhotu Ram stadium Sakshi though has repaid her family manifold A year after she started wrestling her biggest prize was a cream-and-brown water camper for winning a district schools competition By the time she won the Olympic bronze she had pocketed medals at the Asian and Commonwealth championships and the Commonwealth Games And long before she broke India’s drought at Rio she has begun to change mindsets as well “In the past when people would criticise her I would snap and say ‘what’s your problem she is doing what she wants to do’ And now the same people are sending their own daughters to train in wrestling It’s a good sign” says Sachin Sachin admits that he has a bit of a selfish interest in his sister’s success “When people come to my franchise a number of them know that I am the brother of international wrestler Sakshi Malik Now that she is an Olympic medalist it’s only going to be even better” he says For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express News Service | Mumbai | Published: May 11 2016 1:17 am
