Dronacharyas of Pro Kabaddi Season 3 Part -1

Kabaddi Coaches – An unthankful job!

When we see the Kabaddi players in action, we get inspired and excited. But most of the time the efforts of the coaches go unnoticed. Fans might know all the players in a team but not the coach. We wanted to see the influence of Coaches in this game, so here we have compiled some bio on the coaches of Pro Kabaddi teams for season 3. Sadly, even the government does not recognize the Kabaddi coaches for their contribution to this great Indian sport. A mere four Kabaddi coaches have got Dronacharya Awards and there were definitely more people who deserved the recognition like Randhir Singh.

The Pro Kabaddi has ensured that the Players get the respect they deserve. But what about the coaches?

U Mumba – Bhaskaran Adachery

 BA

There are big names in Indian kabaddi and then there are the final words. Bhaskaran Edachery or Bhaskaran Sir, as he is fondly known, is also the coach of Team India and considers U Mumba as his extended family.

Bhaskaran’s tryst with kabaddi began in Kannur, Kerala which witnessed a thriving Kabaddi culture in the early 80s, with over 300 clubs in his region alone. After making it to his University team, his big break was in the Army Service – EME team. His steadfast game and a disciplined record bagged him the position of India coach in 2007 and he remains to be one of the most successful coaches till date. His biggest achievements remain the 2010 Asian Games Gold and the Gold for the 2014 Men and Women’s Teams in 2014.

Bengaluru Bulls-Randhir Singh

BB

From a Railways Ticket Examiner to becoming a nominee of Dronacharya award, life has changed a lot for Randhir Singh.

The 55-year-old, who once worked intensely to capture without-ticket travellers in trains – plying on Baghpat, Jind, Loni and Shamli route – has now produced five Arjuna awardees and several international Kabaddi players.
Singh was a Dronacharya award nominee of the Railways Sports Control Board for Kabaddi for the year 2011.

Two Arjuna awardees in Kabaddi — Rakesh Kumar and V Tejaswini Bai -have also trained under him for years. Still do.

In his words “All my students were keen that I should make an effort to get my work acknowledged. Then I got my achievements listed and forwarded it. Now if the results of my hard work gets due recognition, it would be great. I am happy otherwise too” Singh, who himself was an Arjuna awardee in 1997, said in an interaction.

Rakesh, who was captain of the Indian Kabaddi team that won gold in 2010 Asian Games,has nothing but praise for his coach sir. “Look, what I am today is because of coach sahab (sir). Our achievement was recognised when we won gold, then coach sahab should also get his due. After all it is his hard work that we could perform at big stage,” said Rakesh, who has trained for 14 years under Singh, said.

Bengaluru Bulls look to repeat their performance under him with a relatively young and inexperience squad.

Ashok Shinde – The Panther, who won many Gold medals for India. He was the first raider in 1990 when Kabaddi was introduced in Asian Games for the first time. An Arjuna award winner, Shinde is now associated with Puneri Paltan as a coach but continues to represent his Air India’s kabaddi team.
