Sourav Ganguly Opens Up His Home and Heart to You
You’ve seen him proudly don the whites and blues of the Indian cricket team. You’ve seen him celebrate the victories, the centuries and the wickets. You’ve seen him give back as good as he got on the cricket field. You’ve seen him mostly on the cricket field and recently in the commentators’ box. Now the man credited with creating the brand of fearless cricket we play today, takes you on a very personal tour of his most beloved space – his palatial home in the Kolkata suburb of Behala.
Three generations of Ganguly’s have called the lavish red building home for over 64 years. It’s the place that has been the mute witness to the birth, boyhood and the eventual crowning of Sourav as the captain of the Indian cricket team. It’s the only home he has known in his 44 years. Little wonder this is where he longs to return to, wherever in the world he may be.
In the second season of ‘Asian Paints Where The Heart Is’ Sourav Ganguly opens up this very private place for all of us. Sourav’s passion for his abode shines through as guides us through its various facets. The garden, the different rooms and the balcony. Yes, you get to see the room where a retired Saurav watches live cricket matches. You also see his special morning place. And most importantly you will be taken into the sanctum sanctorum. The room built by his father that hosts memorabilia and photographs from Sourav’s brilliant career.
There’s also the classy dining table that has hosted some of Indian’s finest cricketing talent. That’s the place, Sourav tells us, his mother has personally served prawns and other Bengali delicacies to Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman.
So join Sourav on a journey like nothing you have gone on before. Enter the Ganguly mansion to truly experience the place Sourav calls home.
