Raghav was a 25-year-old boy possessing admirable height and congenial frame. He was a National Cycling Champion with much gold, silver and bronze in his account. In addition, the committee members chose Raghav to represent India in Cycling Championship in Italy, next year. This was a dream come true. If he wins, he will be an International Champion.
As usual, Raghav took the cycle from backyard, paddled as fast as he can, and reached the stadium where other cyclists were also practicing.
He went straight towards his lane, called for a support while he wore his helmet, gloves, fixed his toes on paddles, buckled them tight, and flew away.
He tried different techniques to improve his cycling so that he could do better in competition.
Meanwhile, while trying a new technique, his balance failed and he fell off a few meters away.
The referee and other cyclists ran towards Raghav. One of them removed his helmet and opened his gloves. Blood was spilling all over from his forehead and mouth. They took him to the nearest hospital.
The doctor checked Raghav’s condition and said a “No”.
After sometime, Raghav’s body was sent to his home in an ambulance. One of the cyclists took his cycle to his home the next day.
Since Raghav’s death, the cycle parked in the backyard of his house breathe with a wish to be an International Champion some day.
