Arul Selvi

Arul Selvi loved table tennis. "Like most sisters, I learned the game from my brother Ravi," recollects Selvi. But Ravi's interest waned and turned to other things, leaving Selvi to fend for herself in table tennis. "I felt so insecure and was struggling to practice, that I almost gave up playing, but fortunately I met Raman." S. Raman, a budding champion at that time motivated her to continue playing. "But what attracted me more than his encouragement was the difference in his life." Raman shared with Selvi that Jesus had made the difference in his life, and invited her to church. Arul recalls, "I was challenged by the priest to accept Jesus as my Savior as He had died for my sins, in order that I could have peace with God." Arul gave her life to Jesus Christ and told her parents who were orthodox Hindus. They accepted her faith in Christ and even allowed her to marry Selva Kumar, who is from a Christian family.

Arul Selvi, like everyone else, has her ups and downs in table tennis. Once she ranked #1 and now she is ranked #8 in India. Whatever her rank may be, she is never ashamed to proclaim the reality of Jesus Christ in her life. Whether it is over Bangladesh TV when she won the gold medal at the South Asian Games in the mixed doubles or with her fellow players.
