Who is Ajay Kumar Saroj’s parents? Know everything about his mother and father

As a plumber by trade, Ajay Kumar Saroj father never allowed his meager money to stand in the way of his children’s ambitions. And he didn’t even hesitate to borrow money to get his kids kits and shoes for that. “When my kids first showed interest in running, I helped them, and gradually all four of them showed enormous promise. I was a terrific runner in school, but after an early marriage and later children, the talent kind of faded. We managed our kitchen and even borrowed money to buy shoes and kits for the kids. It was because I had a low salary and I wanted them to be professional runners,” Dharamraj told the reporters.

Ajay Kumar Saroj (26), competed in the 19th Asian Games in China. He made everyone pleased by winning a silver medal in the 1,500-meter event. Ajay, who hailed from the little town of Kajiani, had been involved in athletics since he was a teenager. He used to rehearse on the Meva Lal Inter College campus in his village. His father Dharamraj would watch over him. All four of his siblings are involved in sports. Though Bhatia has convinced him to pick up the books again, Saroj is happy with his work as a ticket checker at the Allahabad station. Coach is right, though; it might be difficult to get a job later on without a degree. Sitaram College is where I’m enrolled to complete my Bachelor of Arts. The end of my first year of college is soon upon me. Saroj continues, “I’ll try to travel for the tests, even though it might be difficult.”

At the fifth Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games, Asian champion Ajay Kumar Saroj took home the gold in the men’s 1500m competition. His time was 3:48.67. Ajay Kumar Saroj had previously made headlines at the Asian Athletics Championships. In the men’s 1500m, he took home the gold in Bhubaneshwar in 2017 (3:45.85s), and in Doha, Qatar, in 2019 (3:43.18s), he took home the silver. Saroj earned a bronze in the men’s 800m event (1:52.04s) and a gold medal in the men’s 1500m (3:53.46s) at the 2016 South Asian Games. Saroj has previously won one gold medal in the men’s 800m event and five gold medals in the men’s 1500m events at the National Championships.


Ajay Kumar Saroj claims that his parents were aware of his academic shortcomings, which is fortunate. When he was 15 years old in 2011, his parents—a farmer and a housewife—asked him to take up athletics after telling him he wasn’t very good at it. A greater test awaited him following his victory run in the 1500 meters at the current Asian Athletics Championships in Bhubaneshwar, when he spent the final 20 meters celebrating his victory. It took the 20-year-old ten minutes and some coaxing from his coach Jaswinder Bhatia before he appeared in front of the media in large numbers.
