Musclemania® India Physique Apurba Dasman says, "“I succeed because I am willing to do the things others are not. I will fight against the odds. I will sacrifice. I am not shackled by fear, insecurity or doubt. I feel those emotions, drink them in and swallow them away. I am motivated by accomplishment, not pride. If I fall I will get up, if I am beaten I will return. I will never stop getting better. I will never give up.”

At 5'11", 78 kgs., 21 years old and lifetime natural, Apurba was a Top 5 Finalist and promised to return to the MM stage again next season with a complete symmetrical physique.
