My friends have been calling me and showering me with their love and best wishes. There is so much excitement among all my relatives and even our neighbors; my school and college want to honor me. This is what I call God’s blessings. It’s a beautiful feeling.” Giving credit to the city of his birth for this win, Prathamesh says, “All the credit goes to Goa for my success.
