If someone asks you, who is the most calm and patient person in the history of Indian Cricket Team, then I know everyone would have a unanimous answer – Rahul Dravid. He is known as ‘THE WALL’ in the Indian Cricket team. The level of patience and calmness he has, no one is comparable to that. His wife, Vijeta Pendharkar is a medical surgeon by profession. Vijeta was born to a family of an Air Force Wing Commander. Her father’s profession made her to move around a lot in her childhood days. After her father’s retirement, they settled in Nagpur.
Vijeta was completely into a world of science and medicine and had no clue abour the world of cricket. Dravid once said that her obliviousness to the events taking place on the field helped him immensely.
You will be surprised to know that Vijeta gave up her profession after few years of marriage for the family. Dravid was away most of the time because of cricket, so Vijeta took the responsibility of their children’s upbringing. She became the biggest support system in Rahul Dravid’s life and always maintained balance between a demanding career and a peaceful life at home.
They met each other for the first time in Bangalore and became friends. After moving to Nagpur also, they stayed in touch and really grew fond of each other. Soon after their relationship blossomed. The duo got married on 4 May 2003 in a private ceremony. The duo has perfect tale when it comes to their love story.
