General
EARLY DAYS
As a child he always had sporting ambitions, but his path to become a hockey player was not easy. "Hockey was the last resort. Growing up, I was on the heavier side. I had tried shot put but I didn't have the power. I didn't have the athleticism to be good in basketball and volleyball, but being a hockey goalkeeper suited my physique. Surprisingly, I was rather good at it." He was picked to be his local hockey team's goalkeeper at age 12, but needed pads costing 4,000 Indian rupees to be able to play. His father Ravindran was a farmer and wanted to help his son's sporting ambitions, so he sold his cow to pay for the pads. (financialexpress.com, 04 Mar 2012)

OCCUPATION
He has worked as a branch manager at the Indian Overseas Bank in Chennai, India. (Facebook profile, 22 Mar 2014; newindianexpress.com, 13 May 2013)
