Akash Mishra speaks to AIFF
Akash Mishra was in Balarampur but not at his home when he received the phone call. And thereafter, he ran like anything – like running for his life. Perhaps, he had never run so fast. He reached home, and the embrace of the son and his mom (Suman Mishra) tells us the entire story. Akash was desperate to divulge it to his Mummy prior to anyone that he had been summoned for the Indian Senior National Team camp.
Even as Akash went on to make his International debut against Oman, he prefers to talk more about the sacrifices of his mom than his own exploits whenever you speak to him. “Mummy’s influence on my life has been immense,” he smiles.
