The legendary storyteller, Padma Vibhushan RK Narayan, would have been very proud if he had been alive today, because one of his great books ‘Guide’ has apparently come to life in real life.

Although Camille returned to Belgium with her family after her tour ended, the two kept in touch via social media. Gradually the friendship grew and both expressed their desire for marriage to their families, which both families accepted.
Camille was unable to come to India due to Covid restrictions but once the restrictions were lifted Camille came to Hampi. And both of them got married according to Hindu rituals.

Playing good hockey in front of our own fans was a great feeling. We played Pakistan in our first match, and I remember the Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium was completely packed. And as soon as we lined up, the crowd went wild and immediately cheered us on, giving us a confidence boost.”
“That feeling of being supported and encouraged by the home fans when you play well in front of them is unparalleled,” Sardar said.
