Rahul Dravid Sits Quitely In The Back During A Book Event In Bengaluru. Fans Bowled Over By His Humility

Besides being termed as ‘Indiranagar Ka Gunda’, the current head coach of the Indian cricket team Rahul Dravid is also hailed as one of the most humble personalities in the cricket world. Highlighting Rahul Dravid’s humility, a Twitter user has shared a heartwarming tale that indeed proves the former cricketer to be the kindest.

The simplicity of Rahul Dravid

Rahul Dravid is a well-known person not just for his on-field performance but also for his presence off the field. The current Team India Head Coach is famous for keeping a low profile and typically disregarding the gigantic fame he has.


Now former India cricketer Rahul Dravid has won hearts with his humble nature during a book event in Bengaluru. Dravid’s calm and down-to-earth behavior during the event was shared on Twitter by a user named Kashy and it will make you respect the gentleman much more.

According to a Twitter post, Dravid was spotted at an event in a Bangalore bookstore where former cricketer GR Viswanath was present to talk about his new book titled Wrist Assured.

Down-to-earth person

Now, one would expect such a famous cricketer to enter the place with his escort while grabbing the attention of the guests. But, according to the user, Dravid quietly “walked in alone with a mask on” and “greeted Ram Guha”.


“He walked in alone with a mask on, greeted Ram Guha, which is when me and Sameer realized it was indeed Rahul Dravid, he happily sat in the last row without any fuss so much so that the girl sitting next to him didn’t even realize who she was sitting with,” read a part of the Twitter thread.

But later, his fans queued up asking for autographs from him. Dravid patiently fulfilled the requests and then even apologized for not giving the autographs suitably as the crowd had gathered around him.

Realizing that he was unintentionally stealing Viswanath’s show, Dravid then asked the crowd to instead talk to Viswanath. This is what won Kashy’s and probably everyone’s hearts present at the venue. “How can a person who has led the Indian cricket team to so many glories be so humble and down to Earth,” wrote Kashy.


The post has pulled up hundreds of ‘likes’ and comments on Twitter, where many praised Rahul Dravid for his humbleness.
