The biggest factor that sets ABG apart from other companies is its diversity.

We evolve as a better human being through the challenges that we face in our lives. Challenges always help us to learn something new ,there is a famous saying that goes like this ,”There is no scope for improvement once we stop challenging ourselves”. We would never had a landmark invention like that of the bulb , if Thomas Alva Edison had stopped trying while facing the challenges that he had to go through.
Like every human being in this world ,I also had to face many challenges in my life that had shaped my personality and my outlook towards life. From my childhood days I had a strong interest for football. I was part of the school and college football team and I was also part of an A division football club. During the fourth year in my college ,I suffered a serious injury on my right ankle during an inter college football tournament and the doctor recommended me to stop play football as it was a serious injury. Thinking about the fact that I won’t be able to play again affected me mentally. I decided not to give up easily. I started consulting different doctors and interacted with players who had faced similar kind of injuries .I developed a treatment plan to strengthen and heal my ankle. Through five months of intensive treatment, rest and strengthening exercises ,I was able to recover from the injury and I am still continuing my passion of playing football .Going through this phase , reinforced a never give up attitude in me and it had made me mentally stronger.
