Former Indian Cricket Team captain Mahindra Singh Dhoni, who holds an honorary rank of Lieutenant Colonel in Indian Army, paid a visit to the army public school in Srinagar on Wednesday and interacted with students.
There was no pre-knowledge of the event and the official twitter account of Chinar Corps, Indian Army, posted photos of Dhoni interacting with school students.
Donning the army uniform, the 36-year-old posed for photographs with the students and faculties of the school.
During his interaction with the students, the honorary Lieutenant Colonel stressed on the importance of education and sports, according to Chinar Corps’ official twitter account.
“Lt Col (Hony) Mahendra Singh #Dhoni interacting with the enthusiastic children of #APS #Srinagar; emphasised upon importance of #studies and #sports @adgpi @NorthernComd_IA @msdhoni,” the tweet said.
The wicketkeeper-batsman, who was conferred with the honorary Lt Colonel rank in 2011, had interacted with soldiers at the Line of Control (LOC) and even expressed his desire to serve the army after he retires from international cricket. (Kashmir Wire)
