I would get constant feedback about my appearance. The perception was that a person like me would only be a flash in the pan," Kohli said. <p></p> <p></p>"But the truth is if you work hard, the game will give back. The game doesn't look at tattoos, it looks at commitment," added the Indian skipper. <p></p> <p></p>He also feels younger players have become more confident because there is no mandate anymore. <p></p> <p></p>"If you have tattoos, earrings or styled hair, you're not stopped (at the junior levels) just because you're flamboyant. It's not like, if I style my hair or have tattoos, I won't dive on the field because it'll get spoiled," he said. <p></p> <p></p>When Kohli made his ODI debut, fresh off the U-19 World Cup victory in 2008, he stood out. <p></p> <p></p>"For me, winning is like an obsession. I've started to accept losses only now, but earlier, I would just go mad (when I lost)." <p></p> <p></p>But now instead of obsessing over winning every time, Kohli is learning to enjoy the responsibility he shoulders. <p></p> <p></p>"I realise now this is not just about me working hard and doing something on the field, but also about seeing the larger picture. That I have this opportunity to do something special for my country," added the 29-year-old.
