Arun left home yesterday for higher studies. He changed lanes couple of years ago after his serious back injury. He managed to crawl back to normalcy simply through a systematic exercise regimen. His injury was a slow one and not sudden. Having a doctor at home helped pick it up and treat conservatively. Soccer could be a dangerous game without trained supervision and control especially if you have some raw talent and improve very fast.
He developed a great interest in physical conditioning and started coaching others, mainly his frisbee team and school children. His team, Stall7, moved up quite a high in the league. While he continued his interest in reptiles and beach cleaning and martial arts, decided to opt for an MS Degree in Sports Science. University of Leeds accepted his application and he is off.
I have many Flickr friends who are his well wishers and I thought I should let them know.
PS: This was taken with Arun's camera and I am not sure whose shot it was.
