R Madhavan’s Son wins Medals for India
Bollywood actor and proud father R Madhavan is blissfully pleased as punch after knowing that his son had made the country proud. An elated Madhavan took to his social media platform to share good news that his 14-year-old son Vedaant won a silver medal for India at the Asian Age Group Swimming Championship 2019 in Bengaluru.
The energetic boy took part in a 4x100m freestyle relay for ‘Group II’ boys. His father shared a collage of pictures from the event. In the post, R Madhavan mentioned that it is his son’s first-ever official medal representing India in international sports.
Vedaant with the other three participants bagged a silver medal in the category, while Thailand clinched the gold medal and Japan bagged the third spot with a bronze.
This is not the first time when Vendaant has made his father proud. He had won 3 gold medals and 1 silver medal at the Junior National Level Swim meet three months ago.
Madhavan took to social media to share the news, “With all you Blessings, good wishes and Gods Grace … Vedaant makes us very proud again.. 3 golds and a silver at the Junior Nationals Swim meet. His first individual National medals ? . Asian next. Thank you so much to GAF MUMBAI and to all the coaches and team members,” he wrote.
Vedaant will be taking part in Asian Games. In 2018 too, he had won his first medal for India at an international swimming meet in Thailand.
“Proud moment for Sarita and I as Vedaant wins his first medal for India in an international swim meet in Thailand today. Thank you for all your blessings,” R Madhavan had then posted on social media.
Rahul Dravid’s Son scores a double century at Under-14 State Level
In sensational news, Rahul Dravid’s son Samit scripted history as he smashed a scintillating double century in an Under-14 state-level game. The bright prospect proved that age is just a number in the gentleman’s game and turned up the heat against Dharwad Zone while playing for Vice-President’s XI.
It is quite fair to say that the 14-year-old son is following in his father’s footsteps. He hunkered himself at the crease and faced 256 balls to score the beautiful knock which included as many as 22 fours.
The story doesn’t end here. Samit scored a brilliant 94 not out in the second innings of a drawn game. Quite interestingly, Samit bagged three wickets to his name. His all-round performance received plaudits from all across the world.
Based on the prima facie, one can come to a firm judgement that Samit can go on to replicate success in cricket at the highest level just like his father ruled the cricket in his prime.
Rahul Dravid has been an integral part of Indian cricket history and has played an important role in lifting the values and morals of the gentleman’s game. He is often known as the man of simplicity. He is admired by millions of fans across the world.
He is probably one of the very few players in the world to have no haters. It would be quite interesting to see if his son can go places just like Rahul Dravid. Can the Junior wall makes waves and weave the magic like The Wall? Only, time will tell the true story.
