City Boy No.1

This follows the post by Rubic_Cube earlier today on the subject of our Bangalore boys; Dravid, in particular!

India captain Rahul Dravid was deservedly named the man of the match for his vital knocks 81 and 68, which proved crucial in a low-scoring game.

Following his matchwinning knock that earned India’s its first test series victory in 35 years on Caribbean soil, you’d expect his home to be a hubbub of activity – fans, wellwishers, bouquets, galatta, majaa etc etc. Hmmph! Nary a soul. See for yourself.


While I’m miffed with/about the absence of a celebratory mood, it dawns on me that his home perhaps is a reflection of his own personality – unpretentious, solid, calm, serene, get it?

The Wall itself!

    How about some respect for his privacy ? Surely you can put your digital camera to better use ?

    I prefer the Bangalore boys to be the way they are, instead of being featured in TOI’s party animals page. Graham Gooch perhaps summarised Dravid best in this article:

    And hats off to the fans for being dignified too.

    @BNB: Privacy? Thats a good point. But I ain’t no papparazzi keen to show the world whether he prefers Hanes to Jockey – now that’s serious breach of privacy! Lets see what happens on his return back to Bangalore re: a celebration! Cheers & take it easy, mate! ;)
