GT: Tell us about your journey so far
SC: I joined as Indian navy in Sikkim 2nd batch and was really interested about bodybuilding from very tender age ,from the year 2005 when I was posted at Mumbai at a ship named INS ADITYA there was a small gym at my ship, I used to go to that gym and used to excercise but without proper guidance , then at the year 2010 I left Indian navy , once I came to sikkim to witness the Easter India bodybuilding championship and I was so inspired. I started doing bodybuilding on proffessional level. I am in this field since 12 years ! I won Mr Ultimate Sikkim 2016. I was the top five at eastern India bodybuilding competition. As you all know bodybuilding is such a hard game , you have to be so consistent at diet , sleep , workout , also it is very expensive when you take it to a professional level.
GT: How do u see yourself as an artist or social worker?
SC: If a person is a cricketer or footballer he has to introduce but the bodybuilder needs no introduction his body is self explanatory. I had achieved name and fame in this field so I decided to give something to the society as well.
GT: What is the motivation behind your fitness?
SC: My fist gym was at Rangpo IBM in the name of Bodyvibe gym and fitness. I was so concerned about the rising drug situation at my sorrounding so I decided to open a free gym at Rorathang Bazar so that the youth who cannot afford could come there and workout without any fees, I don’t charge any fee there !! That was my contribution towards healthy state.I see my self more as a social worker because being social for me is not like showing off but I do it because it gives me inner peace.Even at Rorathang with the help of road company I have constructed one storied school building which is being used as class 11 and 12 at Rorathang Senior Secondary School.
GT: Tell us more
SC: So I started to open gym, Also I m sending best student from my gym to accuire free bodybuilding courses including diet and nutrition so that it could be job oriented. At my another gym in Rangpo I don’t charge fees to those who cannot afford. I look this more as social service rather then business. I was the first to keep state level interpharmacy competition which was a grand success. Even to motivate school going students I organised state level interschool push-up and pull-up competition. I myself is my self motivator !! My wellwishers my fans are my biggest motivation.
GT: Tell me about your work in acting so far
