Sunil Gavaskar Opens Up On Student Protests

“India has overcome many crises in the past and it will overcome this one as well.” Sunil Gavaskar equated the ongoing protests in India with the crisis of war it faced in 1965. The cricket great was speaking at the Lal Bahadur Shastri Memorial Lecture.

    He lives in Laalaaland not India, he has no clue what everyday Indians go through. I don’t think he can preach coming from the privileged position he has always been in.

    So what you are saying is we should support the ones who sell this country to corporates and rule us by dividing us. Great Batsman, but zero. He should be ashamed.

    This COVID-19 unnecessarily blown up out proportion. Compare the total population with number of people infected. I hope this doesnt become advertising platform for so called elites.

    Hmmm.. No wonder.. he turned down Imraan Khans.. invitation to his inauguration as Pakistan Prime Minister... playing politics.. Sunil Gavaskar should be helping could to use sport to build bridges with other countries.. not break relations and create unpleasantness and dislike for people... after all Indian and Pakistan people share the same DNA...

    Money and Gavarnar are inseparable .This cricket stadium speech , delivered in the style of a Messiah is an airy nothing .Well ,you eat roti without rice vice versa rice without roti , indeed a great sacrifice . Count the runs you made , but ask not the students to be duty minded .An empty stomach cries , a full purse preaches .Oh , Sastri is your toe model , for other achievements , remember the others .Jai Javan, jai kidan?? What do you know about the suffering peasantry .Why are they committing suicides .This is not a cricket book of rules , the social reality is there outside your brain , insensitive and immature .

    Gavaskar is another scared bhakt of Modi. He should speak of the economy, unemployment, looting of funds from independent institutions, destroying the Aam admi’s hard earned money by making public institutions in buying defunct and worthless companies like the IDBI and many more instead of exposing his alliance to the ruling dispensation through his verbosity. He can be frank to say he wants to save his back at the cost of the common man.

    His speech is not as blunt as his cricket commentary. His speech was diplomatically hypocrite.
