“We are lucky to have a son like Shanku. He is so humble and respectful to everyone and that is the reason he has come so far. He’s been like this since school. We’ve never had any trouble with him” his mother K. S. Bijimol said.

Well he might be lucky to be born to athlete parents but without his hard work and sheer determination, none of this would have been possible, We congratulate the champ and we can’t wait to see what he has in store for all of us.
