Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir might be aggressive on the field in an attempt to win games for the team but when it comes to the other side of Gambhir’s world, his attitude towards doing good deeds for others has always been the coin of the realm.
The former Indian Boxer Dingko Singh who is deemed to be one of the greatest boxers for India made the nation proud by winning a gold medal for India in 1998 Asian games when taking a trip down the memory lane.
But, after coming to know that he was suffering from bile duct cancer, it resulted in the depth of the depression. Dingko Singh was admitted to the local hospital to undergo chemotherapy treatment on Tuesday at Imphal. With a view to cure cancer, it is believed that the doctors had to expel 70% of the constitute of the patient’s liver organ.
After being aware of the news, Gautam Gambhir felt unhappy and was there to help Dingko Singh to provide financial assistance. ”It is disturbing to note that Dingko has been left alone to fight for his life,” he told Indian Express.
Gautam Gambhir also heaped praise on the popular boxer for winning the prestigious gold medal for India at Asian Games followed by some majestic accolades and also quoted that many take inspiration from him. The cricketer also added saying that he has done something good for which he is least bothered to bring to public attention.
“It is really tragic the way we treat our sportspersons. I mean here is a guy who has won gold at Asian Games, Arjuna Award and is a Padma Shri. I am sure there are ways to look after him. I have done something which I won’t like to publicise here.” said Gambhir.
