Sponsorship has always helped the one who deserves to be helped.
Pushkar Sharma one of the upcoming cricketer, a former player of the African premier league, and former captain of the Mumbai U-16 team has made a gesture of thanks to his former employer Indiafirst life insurance for the sponsorship.
Pushkar Sharma said, "the current pandemic has destroyed many families. Some emotionally and some financially.
Being the only earner in the family it was hard for me as well.
However, because of Indiafirst company, it was a little easy to go through this hard time."
Pushkar’s journey with Indiafirst started when Ajish Rahman one of the senior employee and the Captain of Indiafirst gave him the job as a phone manager and also gave Pushkar an opportunity to play in the Indiafirst team.
Pushkar was awarded by best batsman of the year while playing for Indiafirst.
From there Pushkar started getting fame in Indiafirst company. In 2019, Sharma got an opportunity to Kenya for playing a tournament. By seeing Pushkar’s abilities and potential for playing cricket Mr Digambar asked him to come to Kenya. As working in a cooperate company it was hard to ask for 30 days leave. However, after a meeting with the Chief people officer of Indiafirst Mr. Menon, company agreed to approve one month’s leave for its employee’s benefit.
