Meet the Forrest Gump of India ************************************ It was just a physical test for recruitment of police constables in Sriganganagar district in Rajasthan on March 26. But the results in the 10km run left officials stunned. The aspiring constables were needed to cover 10km in one hour to pass. But, a 24-year-old completed the course in almost half the time! Sandip Acharya, from a non-descript village in Hanumangarh district, crossed the line in just 33 minutes, which is nearly as good as the national record. Senior police officers conducting the tests made him run another 1.5 km, which he did in four minutes. IGP, Bikaner, Girdhari Lal Sharma, confirmed that Sandip had indeed run the mandatory 10 km in 33 minutes. “Forrest Gump has been one of my all-time favorite movies and watching Sandip run was as if the character was in front of me. He was running like the wind,” said a police officer in the recruitment committee. Sandip, of Kihanpura Uttarada village, is not even aware that his finish time is hot on trail of the national record. Athlete Surendra Singh, who runs in state-of-the-art running shoes on synthetic tracks, holds the Indian 10,000m record of 28 minutes and 2 seconds. He did so in Vigo, Spain, on July 12, 2008. Kashinath Aswale has the national 10 km road record of 29:43 minutes. Had Sandip run in proper gear, he might have shaved off a few more minutes, said one cop. And yet, Sandip may not make it to the police. That’s because he didn’t apply under sports quota. “Had Sandip applied under sports quota, he would have been selected for sure. But because he didn’t, we can’t say if he would be selected,” said IGP Sharma. Sandip and his father are labourers. He dropped out of school after completing secondary education. As the family couldn’t afford sending him to school, he graduated through correspondence. He never trained for running or followed a dietary regime. “I had appeared in a written exam for police constable recruitment in June 2014. I came to know that I had passed when the results were announced a couple of months later. I then started preparing for the physical test,” said Sandip. “A 10km stretch separates my village from the next one. I started running on the road connecting the two villages,” said Sandip. IGP Sharma expects Sandip to run much faster in tournaments. IGP Sharma added that another aspirant, Shrawan Kumawat, completed the run in 35 minutes. “Shrawan had applied under the sports quota because he had won gold medal in an inter-university competition. Shrawan has been selected. We will train him to participate in police tournaments,” said the IG.
