Indian cricket lovers favourite M.S.Dhoni celebrates his birthday today. He turns 39. Honestly, I am not a cricket fan, but ask me how am I reminded of his birthday being today. I have a colleague at my workplace, who used to distribute chocolates to all employees and cut a cake on the cricketer’s birthday year after year. And during this lockdown period, she went a step ahead. 2 days back I got a call from an Amazon delivery guy, asking me to come to the gate and collect my delivery. I explained I had no order coming in, but he mentioned my name, my address and I had to go check it out.
Took the parcel and unpacked it as I entered my building. I found a box of chocolates with an envelope mentioned Happy Birthday Dhoni. I instantly knew this was The Great Fan of Dhoni, my colleague who had sent this. Dhoni, Are you listening ?
Few points on his birthday apart from Cricket :
- In 2011, he was honoured as a Lieutenant Colonel in the Territorial Army.
- In 2009, he was awarded a Padma Shri.
- In 2018, he was awarded a Padma Bhushan.
- In 2016, a biopic was made on Dhoni, titled, M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story and played by a talented star, Late. Sushant Singh Rajput.
- A down to earth man, with a sweet smile. Happy birthday Dhoni
