Young Indian golfer Arjun Bhati has sold all the trophies in order to raise money for the Prime Minister’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations (PM-CARES) Fund. The teenager has donated Rs 4.30 lakh towards the cause.

Bhati’s ,trophy cabinet had more than 100 trophies including 3 World Golf Championship titles and National Championship. Bhati is a promising upcoming golfer and is supported by the Virat Kohli foundation.

Bhati has sold his trophies to his relatives and friends of his parents to raise money.

“As you all know, our country is going through a tough time, a difficult situation has arisen. I would like you all to come forward in helping the country. Do contribute in whatever capacity you can.

“In the last 8 years, I had won 102 trophies, I gave them to get some money and now I have contributed Rs 4 lakh and 30 thousand to the PM-CARES Fund. I would like everyone to utilise this time and follow self-isolation,” Bhati said.

“I wanted to do my bit in India’s fight against Covid-19. Since I have no earning of my own, I decided to sell my trophies. Trophies can be won later, but I can’t sit idle when my nation is in need of funds to fight the deadly disease.

“My relatives and friends of my parents have bought them. Though the trophies are still at my home. I will send them across once the lockdown is lifted,” Bhati added.

Bhati’s selfless act was recognized by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The PM retweeted Bhati’s tweet stating “This kind of feeling of the countrymen will be a greatest support during the corona pandemic. ”
