According to Prateek, he got to know about this athlete in year 2017. He saw a news in which reporters are showing a lady crying and quoting that she want to sell his husband’s Arjuna Award. This idea struck in his mind and he took his first step of this journey then. He personally met Makhan Singh’s wife Salinder Kaur, Makhan Singh’s Son Parminder Singh and daughter in law.
