Gogi used to be a bright student while he was in school and college. He participated in various Volleyball competitions and won medals.

When he was in college, he started getting involved in college politics, and from there, his political rivalry with the Tillu Tajpuria gangster started.

Today I will leave you because I am with my father. The next time, I’ll kill you.”

As a child, Sunil would come to our house and the two would lie in the verandah, talking for hours. So thick was their friendship that Sunil would run to our home every time his mother didn’t make chapatis for him. They were inseparable; it’s quite unfortunate how things changed.”
