Stars shone bright for 21 girl students studying in classes from VI to XII of a government school as they were adopted by former Indian hockey player Ajit Pal Nandal. Nandal said that he would bear their educational expenses, train them in sports and take care of their expenses in terms of equipment and fees vis-a-vis sports tournaments.
The girls belong to a government school in his native Bohar village. Nandal has also decided to take up all their expenses related to studies till they clear Class XII exams from the government school.
Before this, cricketer Gautam Gambir had stated his decision to bear the educational expenses of the children of slain CRPF personnel in Sukhma.

Nandal says he was inspired by Gambhir to adopt these girls. Nandal is also a co-member of Task Force constituted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi with an eye on the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Rohtak SP Pankaj Nain who was present at the event to announce the adoption said that girls have great potential in all aspects, and they needed to be guided in the right direction.
