Sudhir Kumar Choudhary – Indian Batting Maestro Sachin Tendulkar’s Biggest Fan
You must have seen that in every international cricket match a man who paints himself in the Indian Tricolor blows a conch when the Indian team arrives on the ground. Yes, that is Sudhir Kumar Chaudhary. Once in 2003 Sudhir peddled all the way from Bihar to Mumbai on his bicycle just to watch the match between India and Australia. Since then he has never missed a match of India that is being played n the Indian soil.
This man belongs to a very simple family in Bihar and he does not have enough money to finance his travels so he travels to different parts of the country on his bicycle just to watch the Indian cricket team play. Many a time he would even travel by trains but without ticket to watch his favorite team play. His passion for cricket is amazing as his whole life revolves around cricket.
The best moment of his life came when India won the ICC Cricket World Cup on 2nd April 2011 at the Wankhede Stadium. He was signaled by The God of Cricket, Sachin Tendulkar, to join the celebration of winning the world cup in the dressing room of Indian cricket team. There he got to lift the world cup and pose with it.
This humble man from a very humble background is so passionate about cricket that he even postponed his marriage just to able to see the match. Though Sudhir is a trained teacher he s unemployed. Earlier he worked with a milk company too. Though his parents are against this kind of life style but Sudhir is adamant on continuing the same lifestyle. He has declared that he is born in this world so that he can watch Indian cricket team play. His life is mostly dependent on the monetary support he receives from the public.
There has been a documentary made on his life named “beyond all boundaries” where he is shown to be the greatest fan of the Indian cricket team and cricket as such. The film makers had to travel along with Sudhir for thousands of miles to make this documentary on his life and incredible passion
It is not only he in the family that is passionate about cricket, his younger brother shares the passion too. He bought Tendulkar’s biography for this reason but has not been able to read the biography beyond the fourth page of the book.
Sudhir Kumar Chaudahry has his own fan following now and he was helped with getting a visa for Australia World Cup in the year 2015. Sachin tendulkar himself wrote a letter of reference for him asking the embassy to give him special treatment as he is a national icon.
