Virat Kohli’s childhood coach reveals Teacher’s day gift from his disciple

Veteran journalist Vijay Lokapally has revealed some interesting and never-heard-before stories about Virat Kohli’s life in his book ‘Driven’. The book covers the Indian batting sensation’s inspirational journey in the so far and contains numerous excerpts that will make the fans respect the player even more.

Kohli’s childhood coach Rajkumar Sharma’s contribution in his disciple’s rise from a prodigy to one of the biggest star of the game is well known. One can understand Rajkumar Sharma’s huge contribution in Kohli’s life by the fact that he was conferred with the highly-prestigious Dronacharya Award a couple of months ago for his exploits. In the past, Kohli has been very vocal about his coach’s contribution in his life and made sure to congratulate his teacher after the recognition.

Busy in West Indies with the team, he tweeted:

Well, the latest revelation in the book will surely prove that how much the Indian batting star adores his coach.

The author wrote:“I answered the bell and found Vikas (Kohli’s elder brother) at the door,” said Raj Kumar.

“His brother’s arrival at his house so early in the day was cause for concern. Vikas stepped into the house, dialed a number and handed his cell phone to Raj Kumar. ‘Happy teacher’s Day Sir,’ said Virat, even as Vikas thrust something into Rajkumar’s palms – a bunch of keys.

“Rajkumar stood perplexed as Vikas requested him to step out of his house. A gleaming Skoda Rapid was parked at the gate – a gift from Virat to his mentor.”

“It was not merely because he had gifted me the car. It was because of his emotional touch to the process of reminding me how much he treasured our association and valued the role of a teacher in his life.”
