The show with a cause ‘Satyamev Jayate’ is back with its third season. The first episode, that premiered today simultaneously on Star Plus and DD National, talked about Sports and how they can change one’s life.
To begin with, as the show’s format goes, there was an inspirational story of juvenile Akhilesh Kumar who was a drug addict, but was tempted into playing football instead of doing drugs. He went ahead to coach children in a red light area and even captaining his side in Homeless World Cup in Brazil in 2010.
Next guests were wrestler sisters Babita Kumari and Gita Kumari and how their father made wrestling change their future and brought them in pace with the male population.
Saina Nehwal made a special appearance in the episode and shared her story. There was also a story of a nine-year-old pro golfer Shubham Jaglan. Sports lawyer Rahul Mehra also spoke of the need of a sports law to ensure the equal and fair promotion of every sport by the government, not just cricket. And thankfully, there was no mention of cricket in the whole episode. Cricketing legend, Sachin Tendulkar, quite liked the whole concept and took to Twitter to express his appreciation.
