You Should Learn To Accept The Reality: CSK Bowling Coach Lakshmipathy Balaji Speaks On COVID-19 Scare
Former Indian cricketer and the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) bowling coach Lakshmipathy Balaji is confident that India will quickly cop up from the deadly coronavirus which has taken the lives of more than 30,000 people worldwide.
Balaji gave examples of the Tsunami and Chennai flood when India had to face hard times, but the country successfully combated the situation and survived.
He says that with the help of other countries and by following the rules, we can get rid of the deadly virus.
“We are designed to survive. Our ancestors were able to fight diseases. Our parents were able to deal with difficult times. Even we have survived crises, the 2004 Tsunami and the Chennai floods to name a few.”
“People are coming together. Countries are offering help to each other, setting aside the differences. Respect the time. If you look at how to get through the day, then it’s going to be difficult. You should learn to accept the reality and inculcate self-discipline during these times.
Challenges make stronger: Lakshmipathy Balaji
Further, he added that he clearly knows how a cricketer feels when he sits for a long time in the home. When Balaji had a back injury, he was ruled out of the game for a long period. So, he says that player has to go through mental challenge while sitting at home.
“I missed 2 years of cricket during my back surgery. I am used to sitting at home and doing nothing. If I have overcome that, definitely I can overcome anything. Each and every sportsman would have had their own set of challenges that would have made them stronger,” concluded Balaji.
Meanwhile, to support the government, many big names have donated in PM’s relief fund. Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, MS Dhoni, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane and Patha brothers have also donated their bit to help the needy to face the tough time.
