Charity begins at home! Former hockey player Ajit Pal Nandal firmly believes in that theory. Hailing from Bohar village in Rohtak district, Ajit Nandal has adopted 21 girl students of the government school from his native place. Inspired by Gautam Gambhir, Nandal has promised to take care of the girls' education for their entire school years, train them in sports and also pay for their expenses related to sports tournaments. The village school in Bohar identified 21 girls from Classes VI to XII who come from a humble background for adoption.

Nandal, who also runs a state-of-the-art facility gymnasium and a stud farm in Rohtak, opened his arms for other girl students who are keen on training for sports can avail the facilities of his gymnasium for free. According to reports by various media houses, Nandal was inspired by Gambhir's act to bear the educational expenses of the children of slain CRPF personnel in Sukma district.

While his act is certainly to be lauded, former Indian opener Virender Sehwag is also in awe of the former hockey player's act. Sehwag on his Twitter handle wrote, "This is great work done by Ajit Nandal. Best wishes".

According to The Tribune, Nandal has also adopted five boys who play hockey. Speaking to the leading daily, Nandal said he would try to rope in more prominent sportspersons and sponsors who can adopt children at the grassroots level and steer them towards a better future. Nandal was also quoted by Times of India, saying he was perturbed by bad name earned by the state (Haryana) particularly Rohtak due to recent crimes against women.
