New Delhi, Jan.16 (ANI): It seems that cricket is the only sport in India which enables players to lead a lavish lifestyle, whereas other sportspersons really find it hard to earn their livelihood.

The story of international para-swimmer Bharat Kumar is another example of negligence that sportspersons, other than cricketers, have to face in our cricket crazy nation.

Bharat Kumar, who is a gold medalist in World Games, a silver medalist in the World Championship for India, has been forced to wash cars of others to earn his living.

It is such a sorry state of affairs that Kumar, despite bringing such laurels to the nation, is still without a job.

He has tried a lot and approached a lot of people but has got no response. Distressed by this, the gold medalist has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
