ASHISH BALLAL
Meet Ashish Ballal, India's ace hockey goalkeeper who has done St. Joseph’s Indian High School proud. He is an Arjuna Awardee in 1996, Bangkok Asian Games Gold Medalist in 1998 and a silver medalist in the 1994 Asian Games held at Hiroshima, Japan. He was a member of the Indian team at the Barcelona Olympic Games held in 1992 and Captain of the Indian Airlines Hockey Team. For this six-foot-two tall goalkeeper, hockey is a passion. He wants to give back to Indian hockey what he himself received. He has teamed up with others like Dhanraj Pillai to start the Dhanraj-Ashish Hockey Academy which was launched simultaneously in Mumbai and Bangalore. Boys in the 10-14 years age group are recruited and trained. Thanks to persons like Ashish, Indian Hockey has a bright future.
 
ARAVIND BHAT
“Bhat is Champ”, said one newspaper when Arvind Bhat won the men’s national Badminton tile at Indore in February 2009. He won quite a few international titles and was a member of the Indian Thomas Cup squad. Until recently he was ranked 27th in the world. This recent national win will certainly give him a big boost to go up much higher. Hardly a few days after his Indian triumph, Arvind has left for Germany to take part in some tournaments there.

In his school years at St. Joseph’s Indian Middle and High School, Bhat was seen leaving class, racquet in hand, every day to rush for practices at the courts of the club he was attached to. However, interested as he was in mechanical engineering, Bhat was more focused on academics. Though a late beginner, he has caught up and has risen to become the National Champion. Sheer grit and hard work has brought him glory. A member of the Tata Padukone Badminton Academy in Bangalore, he was the National men’s singles finalist in 2002, 2004, 2006 and 2008. Though the winner’s spot always eluded him, he stuck on with dogged determination. He acknowledges his indebtedness to the legendary Prakash Padukone. Though 29 now, Bhat dreams of winning an Olympic medal.

“There are a whole lot of youngsters who are hungry for success and have the ability to raise their level to beat us,” says Arvind. Hope there will be some more youngsters from St. Joseph’s Indian High School to step into that group.
