Rahul Dravid, Ajit Agarkar visit Columbia University in NYC amid T20 World Cup, pay tribute to BR Ambedkar

SUMMARY : Rahul Dravid and Ajit Agarkar, notable figures in Indian cricket, visited Columbia University in New York City during the T20 World Cup. Their visit was significant as they paid tribute to Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, a prominent Indian social reformer and the principal architect of the Indian Constitution, who had studied at Columbia University.

This visit highlighted the deep respect and admiration for Dr. Ambedkar’s contributions to Indian society and the global recognition of his work. Dravid and Agarkar’s tribute at Columbia University served to acknowledge the historical and academic ties between India and the institution, as well as to honor Ambedkar’s enduring legacy.

Rahul Dravid and Ajit Agarkar visited the Columbia University in New York City on Thursday. They paid tributes to BR Ambedkar.

A picture of Rahul Dravid paying his tribute to BR Ambedkar while visiting Columbia University has gone viral. The photo is shared on X by Vishal Misra. His X bio says he is the Vice Dean Computing and AI at the university. Besides sharing Dravid’s picture, he also posted a photo of Ajit Agarkar. While Dravid is the head coach of the Indian cricket team, Agarkar is BCCI chief selector.

“Dravid and Agarkar paying their respects to the father of the Indian constitution and a Columbia PhD Dr BR Ambedkar,” Misra wrote as he posted the photos.

Later, Misra shared another picture of the former cricketers along with a witty caption. “No Rahul and Ajit, we cannot have the next Indian team camp here at Columbia. I told you that was a different kind of encampment back there – please!” he posted.

Rahul Dravid and Ajit Agarkar are presently in the USA with the Indian team to take part in the T20 World Cup 2024. India made its debut in this season of the T20 World Cup with a match against Ireland on June 5 and emerged victorious by eight wickets. Team India is set to play its next match against Pakistan on June 9 at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, New York, USA.
