The book ‘Driven’ penned by Sports Journalist Vijay Lokapally showed how much respect Indian Test skipper Virat Kohli have for his coach Rajkumar Sharma.
It was on 2014 Teacher’s Day, Kohli’s Elder Brother Vikas reached Rajkumar Sharma’s house and rang the calling bell. Rajkumar himself opened the door and he was worried to see Vikas come to his house so early in the day. Vikas entered into the house, dialed a number and handed over the cellphone to Rajkumar. Virat Kohli who is on the line wished his Guru, ‘Happy Teacher’s Day, Sir’. Then, Vikas placed a bunch of keys in Rajkumar’s hand and asked him to step out of his house to see the brand new Skoda Rapid parked outside his residence.
Rajkumar Sharma was so moved by the gesture not because its an expensive gift but the emotional touch reminding the influence he had on his career and valuing the role of a Teacher.
