Wonderful Gesture By the X-Hostelers
The Boys had Mahendra Karki´s affectionate name “Mahendu” written on their jersey´s instead of their own names and they also presented Jersey Number 3, which was Mahendra´s number, to his younger brother Gyanendra Karki through their Captain, Nim Tshering Lepcha.
Winning and losing is part of the game but X-Hostellers have entered this tournament to honor and respect the memory of one of the best Sikkimese footballers “Mahendra Karki”.
Moments and Gestures like this truly make football more than just a game.
