On the contrary, he was blessed with three daughters and felt hopeless. He felt miserable as his dream will not be fulfilled. Accidentally, one day, like a shinning of thundering light raised his hopes again.
His two elder daughters have beaten two boys harshly who teasing them. The parents of those boys came to Mahavir Singh Fogat’s place for a complaint. He begged for an apology at that time. On the other hand, he gets up confidently from his seat and asked their daughters to show him the trailer “how did they beat the boys?” The girls reveal their talent for wrestling in a few moments to his father. At that time, he made an important decision. He will train his daughters
