Cricketer Rinku Singh has five siblings. His father used to deliver cooking gas cylinders.
The economic condition of Rinku Singh’s family was very pathetic. One of his brothers used to drive an auto rickshaw, and other one used to work in a coaching center. It took work to earn a livelihood for the family.
Rinku Singh was not good at studies or interested in studies.
When his father used to send him to school, he used to leave lectures and go to play cricket. Father explained a lot to him and beat him several times for this. But Rinku Singh’s heart was not felt anywhere other than cricket.
But the economic conditions were such that he did not even have the money to buy the ball. He started going through much mental depression.

Father explained a lot to Rinku Singh and also punished him. But as the Western thinker Sartre says, ‘ Man is condemned to be free.’ Rinku Singh did not listen to his father and continued his trend toward cricket.
But poverty stopped Rinku Singh from moving forward like a horse’s reins. Meanwhile, Rinku Singh got the Man of the Series award in a tournament held in Delhi. He got a motorcycle as an award, which he gifted to his angry father.
