Bravo, Rahul Dravid

Rahul Dravid, a consistent batsman deservedly hailed as the Great Wall for successfully stalling the efforts of opposing teams, has graciously declined to accept the honorary doctorate that the Bangalore University decided to offer him.

Dravid undoubtedly ranks among the topmost cricketers who deserve accolades. His humility that he would rather earn a doctorate is eminently praise-worthy. He has gone up several notches in our respect for the achiever. At a time when everyone is craving for praise and compliments, deserved or more likely undeserved, Dravid's action serves as a beacon. Our netas, particularly politicians, are unlikely to follow him.

Dravid's modesty and gentlemanliness have always stood out. Therefore, his latest action is typically 'Dravidian'.
