Girish Marathe
Sports Instructor
Hello, I’m Girish Kantilal Marathe. I’ve completed my Diploma in Engineering  from Pune. I’m a Sports Instructor and I’m very passionate about Athletics. I’m a Trainer in Sports Injuries. I’m a state player in 800 M, 400 M and 200 M run. For me Aatman is an ocean of educational possibilities. Nothing is impossible here. ‘There may be people that have more talent than you, but there’s no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do.’ We learn that from  Aatman! ‘It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up.’  I’ve learnt the true meaning of that too, from Aatman!
