This past week, the young student-athletes of NBA Academy India joined the league's NBA Together campaign - a global community and social engagement campaign that aims to support, engage, educate and inspire youth, families, and fans in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Over the past couple of days, the youngsters have shared how they have been dealing with the nation in lockdown, their home workouts, new hobbies, healthy habits and more.

Achintya Krishna shares his new hobby and talent on a beautiful Sunday ☀️ #NBATogether - "I learned to play the ukulele a month ago. I had learned to play the guitar 4 years back, and the ukulele looked easy to learn. It helps me stay occupied, when I get bored. The sound of it is very energizing and soothing. I would recommend others to learn it because it's very easy to learn. It's a small instrument and you can carry it anywhere you go. You can use this to play any song you'd like!" - Achintya Krishna, #NBAAcademy 🇮🇳
