chipka di” It was a poem crafted by his friend and Dutt posted it on social media as he felt the same sentiments In that poem Kanhaiya is called napunsak (impotent) the protesters are compared to Turkish invader Mahmud Ghazni and the names of Chandrashekhar Azad and Bhagat Singh are also invoked The subsequent flood of tweets by him with a similar theme earned him praise and brickbat with some criticising him for falling prey to ‘right-wing propaganda’ rather than focusing on his sport But Dutt insists his political ideology isn’t painted in any colour “JNU issue wasn’t a political thing for me He (Kanhaiya) spoke against the country If it’s about country’s benefit then we should talk about it I don’t think if BJP feels bad or someone else will feel bad I say what I feel is right” he says “Our army sacrifices their life for the country We just play for the country They die for the country Mahaan hai woh…” This unflinching baring of his soul changed Dutt’s public image of being this shy village boy who cared about nothing but wrestling “Chup toh mein abhi bhi rehta hoon magar mere jo vichaar hai woh…(I am silent even now but my thoughts…)” he argues with a smile “Whatever I feel strongly about – the rights and wrongs – I will talk openly about it If I am not able to do that then God should have made me mute” Social media unmuted him Though Yogeshwar is barely reachable on his phone he likes to be surrounded by people He shares his apartment with four or five close wrestler friends while hordes of well-wishers – young and old – queue up to meet ‘pehlwanji’ every day A year or so ago you wouldn’t have imagined the 34-year-old to speak up on such an issue He was and continues to be very self-effacing But in the last few months even as he copped abuse from fans of Salman Khan he has spoken contemptuously when the actor was declared an ambassador for Olympics Last month he retweeted the singer Sona Mahapatra: “Women thrashed people run over wild life massacred & yet #hero of the nation ‘Unfair’ India full of such supporters” He has also sacrificed his friendship with fellow wrestler Sushil Kumar by speaking out in support of Narsingh Yadav It’s Dutt like we have never known him For his friends though it is the Yogeshwar they have always known Chapter 2 – May 2016 Yogeshwar’s tweet about girls’ education to the Haryana chief minister His friends have seen the evolution from a shy boy to this outspoken Twitter star but they know that it isn’t a transformation but just a flowering of personality Raised in a household of teachers in Bhainswal Kalan a tiny village in Sonepat Dutt’s dinner conversations with parents and friends were stimulating Hours were spent reading biographies of Subhash Chandra Bose Chandrashekhar Azad Bhagat Singh and Jhansi ki Rani The interest in literature slowly extended to poetry He is a big fan of poems written by former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and the performance poet and politician Kumar Vishwas But those closest to his heart are by Hari Om Pawar especially his heart-wrenching poem on Kashmir’s freedom “Kya kavita hai woh Hari Om Pawarji’s poetries give me goosebumps” he says His parents wanted him to follow their career-path but he was drawn to wrestling from a very young age He would daydream about being like Balraj Pehelwan Bestowed with the title of Hind Kesari Balraj was very tall and extremely strong Mythical stories on his exploits in the mud-pits further added to the legend of ‘Ballu Pehelwan’ He died doing what he loved the most – during a fiercely-contested dangal And that inspired Dutt even more He did not know what the Olympics were back then Wrestling was also continually shaping his spiritual side True to the akhara tradition he carries his Bajrang Bali idol everywhere He offers prayers to Hanuman before stepping on the mat The deeply religious wrestler is also a firm believer in what is considered to be one of wrestling’s foremost tenets – brahmacharya “Of course I am a brahmachari” he smiles “I will get married once my career is over” A vegetarian himself the only time Dutt scoffs at his friends is when they eat meat Former India women’s basketball team captain Prashanti Singh who knows him from 2002 when both were recruited by MTNL Delhi under sports quota talks about Dutt’s only reproach to her “He always tells me ‘pehelwanji ek jeev doosre jeev ko kaise kha sakta hai Chod do yeh… (how can one living being eat another living being Stop eating non-veg)” These ideologies moulded him into an opinionated person with high set of principles and a very strong sense of right But he wasn’t articulate enough so often kept his views to himself Prashanti remembers him as a shy village boy Once he confessed to Prashanti that he feared he would accidentally poke himself while eating with a fork Prashanti laughed it off But Dutt wasn’t kidding He has even run away from official dinners for the fear of fork and has contended himself with glasses of milk instead of the lavish spread at the five-star hotel “Like most wrestlers he too was shy” Prashanti says “But we forged a bond immediately since we came from very similar backgrounds However he was so innocent and was still new to the city culture that I felt very protective of him Almost like his bodyguard” she laughs It was Prashanti who introduced him to Twitter during the Incheon Asian Games in 2014 Yogeshwar always wanted to be heard And the little birdie has given him the wings He defines himself as ‘a proud Hindustani’ on his Twitter profile The 155 people he ‘follows’ include RSS Indian Space Research Organisation and CNN International “Twitter keeps you updated with current affairs Most of my reading these days happens on my phone” he says “There are a lot of wrestlers on Facebook But it’ll be good if they come on Twitter because there is more news available on it More viewpoints Twitter broadens your horizon It’ll keep you informed on what’s happening in India and around the world It’s important to know what sacrifices people make to achieve what they want to” he says Chapter 3 I’ve never ever seen anyone doing neck weight exercises
