Both the brothers, Sai Kiran and Narsing are under the tutelage of Gulab Singh Pahelwan of Gulab Vyayamshala, Puranapul. Earlier, in some of the tournaments, both the siblings had to face each other in the finals. A sea of emotions rises among the jury and audiences. It’s a mixed bag feeling to have them confront in the finals as on one hand, it takes pride to see the two who have made it to the finals, share the same blood, and on the other hand, sad that one has to win, means, the other has to lose. Indeed a pensive mood! There’s neither intensity nor excitement in such finale for the very reason that both the finalists are siblings.

A victory rally is organized, every time they win from the Gulab Singh Vyayamshala towards their home. All the relatives, neighbors and well-wishers participate in the rally and congratulate the winner(s) and family. A welcome felicitation is given by the family members at their gate entrance. The feeling is just that of a war hero returning home. Saikiran and Narsingh with their relentless hard work and success stories are making their near and dear one’s chest swell with pride. Let’s wish good luck in all their future endeavors.
