Former legendary cricketer, Rahul Dravid has a large fan following. He will always be remembered as one of the best Indian cricket players in the cricketing history. The man, who saved India’s pride by giving his best on the field, is famous for his gentle nature.
It was a science exhibition at Rahul’s kid’s school. The cricketer went there like other parents and patiently attended the exhibition . He also enjoyed every bit of it with his kids, fulfilling the duties of a doting father. One of the parents, who was also present at the school for the exhibition, shared a pic of the veteran cricketer, patiently waiting for his turn in a queue with his little ones.
The parent expressed how beautifully Rahul proved his gentleness by getting mixed into the crowd without spreading any celebrity air.
Take a look at the tweet here:
That’s Rahul Dravid in a queue with his kids at a science exibhition.
No show off;
no page 3 attitude;
no celebrity airs;
no “do you know who I am?” looks;
Queueing just like any other normal parent… really admirable… pic.twitter.com/NFYMuDqubEAdvertisement

As a youngster, I once got a seat close to the pavilion. Was constantly staring at Dravid with eyes full of admiration.After a while,he got up from his seat, came to me & whispered “Don’t stare at me. I’m just like you. No different from you.” He became a real hero to me.
