Mana India lo bodybuilding ante, recent times lo manaki gurthu vache rende rendu perlu Thakur Anoop Singh and Rohit Khandelwal. Vallu kuda manaki telisindhi Mr. World and World Bodybuilding Championship gelichina taravathe. Mana desam lo bodybuilding ni encourage cheyyadaniki associations unna sare, it still hasn’t got that recognition. Many aspirants who want to prove themselves in the filed get very less or no sponsors.
Amongst all these hardships, a Telugu guy who Raja Narendra was born and brought up in Eluru West Godavari Dist made the whole India proud by not only representing India in the International Physique League (IPL) but also winning two gold medals in the competition.
Raja comes a middle-class family. He is into fitness and bodybuilding from 14 years of age. Raja said ‘Nenu fitness and bodybuilding loki vachindhi ma nanna gari valle. Memu motham 3 brothers and mugguram bodybuilding field lone unnam. Ma annayya Krishna Tejaswi 2014 Mr. Universe lo 6th place kottadu. Mugguru bodybuilders intlo unte, oka middle class thandri ki entha kashtamo naku mathrame thelusu’.
Narendra ki fitness coach antu evaru leru. Eluru lo unnapudu he used to workout with his brothers. 10 years back, Hyderabad ki shift aina taravatha kuda, he worked hard on his own. He always says that Prabhas has been his inspiration right from ‘Eashwar’ movie. Narendra holds 2 national level medals, 1 south India medal and more than 10 medals in state bodybuilding and physique competitions.
Narendra Mr. World competition ki kuda select ayyaru but visa apply cheyyadaniki money leka, he couldn’t go to the competition. International Physique League lo kuda he wanted to participate for 4 years. Dani gurinchi chala mandhini sponsorship kosam approach ayyaru but no one came forward to sponsor him. Even this year, he hasn’t got sponsorship but elagaina IPL lo participate cheyyali ani decide ayyi aayana account lo unna 30 thousand rupees ni dollars ga marchi, oka 2 pairs battalu saddukuni California velladaniki ready ayyaru.
At the last moment, Avinash Gandi, Srikanth Yenigella garu financial ga sponsor chesaru and Vadde Rajendra Prasad garu flight ticket book chesaru. He also said that ‘Vallu kani help cheyyakapoyi unte, iroju nenu medals kottevadni kadhu’. Narendra went California alone and he said that his friends Azhar, Teja Reddy, Vishnu Desini, Sunil Reddy treated him like a brother and made him all ready for the competition.
International Physique League is not a small competition at all. Approximately 750-800 competitors from all over the world come to participate in different categories. Atuvanti competiton lo mana Teluguodu 2 gold medals kottadu ante, adhi maamulu vishayam kadhu. Intha sadhinchina kuda, manalo chala mandhiki Raja Narendra evaro teliyadhu ante, badhakaranamaina vishayame.
For his achievement in California, he got felicitated by TAGS ( Telugu Association Of Greater Sacremento) and APTA (American Progressive Telugu Association).
Manam eppudu anukuntu untamu, mana desam lo talent ki kodava ledhu, nirupinchukovadaniki oppurtuities ey levu ani. Raja Narendra ki enni opportunities vachina, he couldn’t soar high just because of he hasn’t got the financial status. Let us hope that money will never be a constraint for him in the future.
