Kondagaon. If the desire is there in the mind then the path will emerge automatically. This has been proved by 15 year old Ranjita Karote, daughter of a village in the district. Ranjita, a class 9 student, does not have a father. Mother’s financial condition is weak. Therefore, she left her daughter at Kondagaon Child Welfare Council for studies. But the feat accomplished by the daughter here is no less than anyone.
Actually, while staying in child welfare, along with studies, Ranjita also started teaching judo tricks to ITBP soldiers. Due to his dedication, he got selected in SAI Bhopal. Here also he won. Now he is being sent to Spain to take training in Judo.
Ranjita was taking training here
There is a coaching camp in Kondagaon run by ITBP 41 Battalion, which is being operated since 2016. Due to this, many students from the interior areas have won medals in Judo at the state and national level. But Ranjita Karote is the first student to go abroad. Ranjita was taking training in Judo from Uday Singh Yadav and Narayan Soren in ITBP. Till now she has won gold in the state five times, while she has also won bronze medal in Bhopal National Judo and bronze medal in Lucknow.
Now Sai is taking training in Bhopal
Ranjita Karote is now studying in SAI Bhopal and is taking Judo training there. Ranjita has won the trials for players to be sent abroad in Bhopal. Now she will go to Spain on January 20 to participate in the international judo practice selection. Let us tell you that Ranjita was selected in Khelo India Women’s League in 2020-23. After getting the medal from there, she got selected in Bhopal SAI, where she is now living and studying.
This is the situation of the family
Ranjita is from Kor Kote village of Farasgaon village of Kondagaon development block. After the death of his father, his mother was raising him, but when his financial condition was not good, his mother admitted Kunda to the Child Welfare Council for his studies. Here, along with studies, Ranjita also started teaching Judo.
Ranjeeta is an example for people
Uday Singh Yadav, trainer of ITBP 41 battalion, said that I have no words for the feat that the student has done. Ranjita has made not only the district and state proud but also the country. Ranjita is an example for the people. This teaches us that even in times of scarcity, if we have dedication, great heights can be achieved. I have full faith that one day this girl will bring glory to the country.
