M S Dhoni in one of his interviews had said that he always tries to control what is controllable and that principle holds water in every career and situation in life, Thoudam was quoted as saying by ANI. He also said that it is only the hard work and self belief that pays in the end. Coming from a region which does not have a very prominent representation in the top echelons of the government, Thoudam has set an example for many aspirants from the region and has himself become the role model to emulate.
