“Abstain from drugs & Intoxicants”: the great Khali
Jalandhar: King of wrestling across the world, the “Great Khali” alias Dalip Singh reached Lovely Professional University. Accompanied by former ‘Mr India’ Hira Lal, Khali inaugurated the new session of LPU’s ultra-modern gymnasium-‘Fitness Edge’. Both of them highly appreciated the best of fitness facilities at the university. Students gathered around Khali like “Lilliputs” and Khali shared his world level experiences with them. Looking at the body built of Khali, students compared their own body measurements with towering built up of globally renowned Khali.
In a great message Khali instructed students: “Abstain from drugs & Intoxicants and live a long healthy life with constructive approach. Society needs your youthful energy the most for the great works to be done for the goodness of humanity.”Interacting with international as well as national students, Khali shared: “The world recognised my strength when I extended a crushing defeat to undefeatable wrestler ‘Undertaker’.”To some other questions put, Khali answered: “No doubt I enjoyed bollywood and TV shows, but wrestling is my real passion and it always thrills me. I want all of you to rule the world by being towering in body and mind!”
Welcoming Khali to the campus, LPU Pro Chancellor Ms Rashmi Mittal said: “We are happy to receive great wrestler of the world who has been kind enough to alert students in regard to their health and physical fitness.
