Happy Birthday Rahul Dravid
It’s birthday. So what do we do on birthdays usually? Well, for starters, we cut a cake but other than that we also reflect on what one has achieved in life till now.
The person we are going to talk about today Ladies and Gentlemen is none other than the ‘Great Wall Of India’-‘Rahul Sharad Dravid’. Interestingly, he was known as ‘Jammy’ in his younger days as his father worked for a jam factory called ‘Kissan’. Dravid grew up to become one of the finest batsmen to have ever played this beautiful game.
A thorough gentleman Dravid would also walk on thin-ice for the Indian Cricket Team. You asked him to open the innings- He would do that for you, you ask him to become a wicket-keeper or suddenly captain the team-He would do that for you as well. Rahul Dravid was the kind of person who would call for a run and wish his partner ‘Good Luck’ at the same time.
While he had numerous opportunities where he could have made a lot more money, Rahul being Rahul decided to help the India A and India Under-19 Team instead once he retired and is now the Director of the National Cricket Academy. We would like to take this opportunity to wish Rahul Dravid a very ‘Happy Birthday’ and hope that he always stays the same and keeps spreading love and good vibes like he always has been.
