Appaji remembered his earliest days at IIT-B and how he had joined at a very young age. He was then one amongst all the students in every way. He mentioned how he identifies himself completely with IIT-B. Appaji spook about the generations he coached and the best moments. He also had a message for current students and players.

I remember the toning up sessions on the hillslope behind Hostel 1. Appaji used to get the team their and we used sprint up and walk Down this patch of road until all of us could no longer walk…..
Was good experience in the MINIMUM level of training that is a must.

My best Wishes to Appaji on his 60th. I know he would still be looking like he is in his 30’s
I found these photos on the net
Probably around 1987-8
