The Indore born, Bangalore raised boy completed his schooling from St. Joseph’s Boys High School Bangalore and earned a degree in commerce from St. Joseph’s College of Commerce. He might as well have had an extremely erudite career had he not been selected to the Indian national cricket team while studying MBA.Called up for the England tour of 1996, followed by his bellowing debut with a 95, Dravid had begun with what was to become a celebrated journey.

Dravid started his cricket learning at a naïve age of 12. He represented Karnataka  at the under-15, the under-17 and the under-19 levels.Keki Tarapore,former Indian cricketer and coach accurately identified Dravid’s talent for the game while coaching at a summer camp. He made his Ranji Trophy debut in 1991, while still attending college

The name Rahul Dravid in itself is a qualifying brand for modesty. With controversies maligning the reputation of contemporary players surrounding their distasteful opinions in a popular pop-culture talk show, it is important that one remembers the class that personalities like Dravid featured. No amount of paper proofs or degrees can do proper justice to the way he has conducted himself thus far,and that like he says is perhaps the mark of a true scholar in him!
