It is due to the roles played by the Macho Man as heroes in the Hindi films, that the youth of the present generation are inspired and had developed a fad of keeping themselves fit and polishing their personality. Many such youths also move a step ahead towards bodybuilding while working out in the gym and they devote their entire life in strong bodybuilding and succeed in fulfilling their dreams.
But a mechanical engineer named Sandesh Deshmukh, who hails from Pimpri Chinchwad city, adjacent to Pune is a bodybuilder with the difference. He has been developing his physic simultaneously while pursuing his mechanical engineering degree. This really requires hard work determination and commitment.This youth Icon Sandesh Deshmukh is a resident of Shahunagar locality in the Pimpri-Chinchwad town.

From sports to bodybuilding
It was since childhood that Sandesh had a penchant for various sports. As cricket was his favourite, he played it in school as well as college and was known to be a player with high sportsmanship. He dreamt of becoming a cricketer of repute but during one match when he saw the transparency being killed and nepotism galore, he decided to eschew playing cricket and take a sport as a career that is transparent. This resulted in encouraging him towards building his body stronger in the period when he was concentrating only on personality and fitness. He started devoting more time to bodybuilding and came out with flying colours. Besides, he also started seeking valuable in-depth knowledge in the field of bodybuilding.
Part time work for building the body
The financial situation of Sandesh Deshmukh’s family was very weak and his parents had many expectations from him as he was their elder son. On the other hand, Sandesh had no other goal than to make a career in bodybuilding. But unfortunately, his career had compelled him to spend around rupees 30 to 35 thousands for regular exercises and diet. As his family was not capable of coughing up the amount, he had to work as a delivery boy, bouncer and at some times as a gym trainer to raise money for meeting the expenses for his bodybuilding. On one hand, he was working hard in the gym and on the other, he was concentrating on the part-time job and developed the skill of balancing, the two.
