Former Indian Cricket team captain and legendary batsman, Sunil Gavaskar, said that students are in hospitals for coming out on streets.
Sunil Gavaskar expressed his concerns over the current affairs of the country. He said that the country is going through turmoil. He added that students are out on the streets when they should be in their classrooms. He was talking at the 26th Lal Bahadur Shastri Memorial lecture.
“The country is in turmoil and whatever I am going to say about the changing face of Indian cricket isn’t going to ease it one bit. Some of our youngsters are out on the streets instead of being in their classrooms. And some of them are ending up in hospitals for being out on streets.”, Gavaskar said.
While stressing about the necessity of being united in this crisis, he added, “The majority are still in classrooms trying to forge their careers and to build & take India forward. We, as a nation, can go higher only when we are all together when each one has to be simply Indian first and foremost.”
Gavaskar also said that the game of cricket has taught us to pull together as one for winning a game. He also expressed his belief in the country saying, “India has overcome many crises in the past and it’ll overcome this one as well.”
