Mortal, an Indian boy from a single parent family in Mumbai, India, grew up in a slum. His mother worked hard to support him and his brother. The boy would have stayed in the slums all his life, just like most poor born Indians.


But the "Jedi survival" video game came to India, and he is one of the best in this group of Indian players.
