Shradhanjali to Late Sh.M.K.Sathya Kumar (Chief Coach).
Sathya Kumar who worked in Sports Authority of India as a Chief Coach of Kabbadi and Kho-Kho and
trained more than 300 coaches worldwide is not among us today as he left this world on 12 November 2020
with his everlasting memories and experiences.
As it is the real truth of life that experience remains with us forever even after leaving this body.
This man was a great example of dedication, sincerity, hard work and perfection. As he was not only
produced world-class coaches but even trained them to live with the honesty, discipline and sincerity.
After getting the sad news of his demise our team reached Mysore at his
residence and collect information about him so that his contribution for the development of Kho-Kho
never get hidden from the world.
He was a father of two girls namely M.S.Ashwini and M.S.Tejashwini and husband of Ms. H.S Gayathri.
It was a very shocking moment everywhere that the legend of Kabbadi Kho-Kho left us. This man was a
true example of honesty which is the necessity of world and he set the example among many about his
strong character and honesty.
This noble soul was born on 18th May 1966 in Mysore, the place where historians were born. He proved
that he was not an ordinary man but a Historian of Kho-Kho. The whole world and coming generations of
Kho-Kho will always remember his contribution to lifting the most disciplined game of the world that
He was a very modest man, extremely focused and dedicated towards his work.
He did his B.Com from the University of Mysore in 1986, B.Ped, M.Ped from the University of Mysore in
1987-1988 and NIS diploma from SAI, NSWC, Gandhi Nagar, Gujarat in 1989-90.
He appointed in NIS SAI Western Centre Gujarat to work as academician teacher in 1992.
We interacted with their students to know about him all replied with one answer that he was a man of
honesty, discipline and professionalism. His absence in the family of world Kho-Kho is never filled
but his everlasting experiences will remain forever with all of us.
His achievements in Sports were good as he represented Karnataka and Mysore University and performed
very well through his career.
As a coach, he even trained Srilankan players and made them capable of achieving medal at International
tournaments (Asian Kho-Kho Championship) 1996.
As we can't go away from the truth of life that one day every soul has to leave this body whether he is
a king or a poor but the things that go with us is the true service, good work, to help the needful that
assists our soul to live with peace whether it lives in this body or some other form of the body.
