Something more about Manoj Patil
“I come from a humble background, therefore I have always believed in struggle and hardwork. I started going odd jobs ever since I was 13-year-old. I feel absolutely ecstatic about being a self-made person. My hometown is Kolhapur; Kolhapur has given the country many Athletes. I would also mention that my genetics have helped me a lot in my journey, although hardwork is the only way out, good genetics do give the much needed boost. But one should not become lethargic if they are blessed with good genetics, because that will not make you get up at 5am and hit the gym, in the end it all narrows down to your efforts and perseverance.”-Manoj in an interview
