For the last 35 years, Marzban Patel has been regularly coaching Mumbai’s underprivileged children in hockey. Some of them have gone on to represent India India in the Olympics. He has been doing it quietly, away from media glare, without expecting anything in return.
Now the coach has finally got his due.
Employees of Godrej & Boyce Manufacturing Co-operative Limited and the Pirojsha Godrej Foundation have come together to present him with two cheques of undisclosed amounts for his good work over the years.
We salute you, Marzban Patel.
