He’s always brewing a storm! Time and again India’s Golf star Shubhankar Sharma has proved that he is indeed an ‘Arjuna’ on the greens, who has his eyes set on his goals. The recognition, however, came on Tuesday when the dexterous Golfer was conferred the prestigious Arjuna Award by President Ram Nath Kovind at the Rashtrapati Bhawan.
Shubhankar Sharma with his family
In an exclusive brief interaction with 4moles.com, proud father Col Mohan Sharma enthused, “Being a father has been, without a doubt, my greatest source of achievement, pride and inspiration. It’s an extremely proud and humbling moment for the whole family! Dreams do come true and Shubhankar has helped us realize the same.”
He is young and has a lot of tests and trials to go through, but thankfully, Shubhankar has a father to steer the youthful Golf talent through challenging times. Not many know but Col Sharma took an early retirement in 2012 to get access to the golf courses across the country and help son Shubhankar make the best out of them.
He said, “It is not flesh and blood but the heart and that special connect which makes us fathers and sons. We never felt that we’re different from each other. Yes, I have been with my son all the time throughout, but it’s definitely not one-sided. Our children Shubhankar and Vandini make us complete and I am happy that as a family we put o in our best to seize the moments together whenever we can.”
Shubhankar has definitely found that new-found fame but it hasn’t deterred him to maintain humility. And Daddy Sharma is extremely proud about the same. Col Sharma goes on to add, “My dear son, I wish you the mettle to take on challenges with poise and I know you can do it.”
