Pat discusses their friendship by saying, “When I saw the news of Seidu Musiwala’s death, I texted Gordeep to confirm. In my home gym, where I train, I played songs like Jatt Da Muqabla and the recently released song 295 to set the pace for my training.”

I visited India twice and competed in Pune and Guwahati. The kind of love that India has given me, no other country has ever given me. I have more fans from India than Pakistan in the weightlifting community. When I was leaving the hotel in Guwahati, the staff and volunteers were crying. It made me feel emotional.”

Noah’s father, Ghulam Dastgir Bhatt, who was himself a weightlifter, spoke of the love he got from India by saying, “I am surprised when people talk that India and Pakistan are born enemies. How much love and respect India has given me, we also love Indian players and Hindustan too. I often talk to my Indian friends like Manjit Singh and ex-Secretary of the Indian Weightlifting Federation Balbir Singh. In fact, my day starts with reading ‘Good morning’ messages.”

Gurdip offered some insight into their friendship by saying, “Noh and I first met at the junior tournaments six years ago and are going to share some tips on diet. Obviously speaking Punjabi helped our friendship.”
