India is always known for its rich culture and vast heritage. People from various other countries come to experience India’s culture and know about its historic significance. The recent example comes from a delightful encounter which showcases Jonty Rhodes and his love for India and its culture.
The former south African cricket legend showed his gratitude towards the wisdom of Bangalore’s taxi driver. The taxi driver had advised Rhodes to indulge in a quick and tasty meal before stepping into the city’s infamous traffic signals. Rhodes took his advice and stepped at a famous roadside eatery to grab a bite of the Indian traditional breakfast. The former south african player took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to express his gratitude towards the taxi driver and wrote “When taxi driver at Bengaluru airport suggested to stop at his favourite restaurant for a roadside bite, because according to him: ‘traffic will be standing!’ Grateful I took his advice. Excellent #mangalorebun and #Mysoremasaldosa, finished off with #masalachai #loveIndia.”
The photo he posted consisted of a Mangalore bun, the Mysore masala dosa and a comforting cup of masala chai. His hashtag of #loveIndia which was accompanied with the tweet is a proof of his affection for the country. This is not the first time international cricketers have shown their love for India. Earlier, Brett Lee also visited India and had posted pictures of the yellow taxis of Kolkata as a heritage of the city. The former Australian player was a part of Kolkata Knight Riders for many years after becoming a bowling coach for the team.
