Mihila Marandi, a 16-year-old boy from an underprivileged family in Ratanpur, Nirsa, Dhanbad is extremely passionate about football. He has completed his matriculation and played tournaments in the nearby villages. Through the football coaching sessions conducted by Tata Power in Maithon, he got guidance and support which honed his skills. This directed his love for the game positively and gave him confidence to participate in state and national level selection. Due to his consistent practice and efforts, in November 2018, he got selected for the Under 17 National Football Camp. Mihila feels happy and grateful that because of Tata Power, he and many local youths got such a wonderful platform, to fulfil their dreams.
