MS Dhoni Takes To Instagram To Express His Excitement of Receiving Padma Bhushan in Army Uniform
The Former Indian Cricket Captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni was conferred with country’s third highest civilian honor, Padma Bhushan on 2nd April, 2018. And it was not the former Indian Captain who went to receive the award. The award was received by Honorary Lieutenant Colonel Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
Dressed smartly in his territorial army uniform, he marched and collected his Padma Bhushan from President Ram Nath Kovind on Monday. And post the ceremony, he took to Instagram to express his excitement of accepting the honor in uniform.
Taking to Instagram, Dhoni posted a series of photos from Monday’s event which included his family as well. The post read: “An honour to get the Padma Bhushan and receiving it in Uniform increases the excitement ten folds. Thanks to all the Men and Women in Uniform and their families for the Sacrifices they make so that all of us could enjoy our Constitutional Rights. Jai Hind.”
Dhoni is regarded as one of the most successful captains of all time. He has been the best captain India has ever had and the best, the world has ever seen. He is the only captain to have won all the ICC trophies. From having lead the Indian team to their first ever T20I victory to bringing home the glory in the ODI circuit after a drought of 28 long years, he has done everything.
He also led the team to a famous win in the Champions Trophy 2013. He is the one under whom India managed to reach the No. 1 spot in Test Cricket.
2nd April is one important date! It was on this day, 7 years ago, that MS Dhoni hit that famous six over long on to quench India’s thirst in ICC ODI Cricket World Cup.
What was even more special about his receiving the Padma Bhushan was, he received that in his Army Uniform. He made every single citizen of the nation be proud of their armed forces. He made a statement that did reach the young hearts and made a strong impact.
MS Dhoni is a legend. And there obviously is a reason why millions follow him and wish to be like him. He is a true leader in every sense of the word.
