First of all, we would like to know about you, where do you come from, what have you done academically and who is who in your family.
My name is Rishabh Chauhan and I belong to Shimla. I am former Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association player and certified cricket coach ( LEVEL 2 ) from International Cricket Council Dubai. I did my schooling from Bishop Cotton School Shimla thereafter went to Chandigarh for further studies, I have also completed Ll.B. from Dehradoon. In my family, I have my wife and my parents.
- What inspired you to venture into this work. When did you take the big leap of doing so and why?
My inner belief and passion for cricket inspired me to start this new venture in Shimla. Once a cricketer is always a cricketer. Sitting behind the laptop in the Corporate sector was never my cup of tea. I thought how could I utilize my energy in cricket. So after discussion with my coaches and friends, I started this venture. I thought to coach young budding cricketers of Shimla and started my journey as a cricket instructor.

- With what vision you started the academy and what are your plans for the future as a commercial sports academy and as an academy spearheading the sports revolution in the state.
- Why do you think sports is important for people? and why do you think that many people shy from opting for sports now?
Any sports is good for better mental and physical development of the body. No, I don’t feel that people of Shimla are shy for opting any sports as we are getting positive response towards RTCA by people of Shimla. Nowadays parents are becoming more aware to get there children indulge in some kind of sports along with studies.
- What do you think is the reason for our country poor performance in sports worldwide, do you think, youth throwing their body and life into unhealthy activities is a big reason, your thoughts?
Personally, I think that our country is doing good in sports worldwide. I agree that there is a lack of basic infrastructure in rural as well as the urban area. Also, lack of knowledge among coaches. Yes, most of our youth are indulging in unhealthy activities and their energy is going waste. So one of the aims of this venture is to make the youngsters aware about to live healthily and physically fit.
