As a country that is seeped into the culture of sports and everything that comes with it, we are endlessly enthusiastic about the lives of sportsmen and women. However, we never hear stories first-hand from sports persons themselves. There is a treasure trove of knowledge and experience that each they have to share, and that is where Tell-A-Tale plays an amazing role.
Tell-A-Tale, an initiative of Sportzilla and Alter Ego, is a series of 12 unknown stories of extraordinary people in the sports, each for 12 months. Their achievements, with adventure, courage, excitement, thrill and laughter will make you sit at the edge of your seats.
They have conducted two sessions of Tell-A-Tale so far where 1st Tale: A Tale of Kashmir to Kanyakumari featured Maharao and Pooja Budhawale. The 2nd Tale: A Tale of Highlines and High Peaks where Rohit Vartak and Ashish Mane shared their experiences.
Tell-A-Tale presents its third edition called titled 3rd Tale: A Tale of Mind and Body on 24th March!
