Reliving his Roots: MS Dhoni Meets His Old ‘Chaiwala’ and Treats Him To Grand Dinner

Dhoni has frequently highlighted that he has not forgotten his roots, and off late he has been re-living his days of struggle and anonymity. One more chapter from those days, as a South-Eastern Railway ticket collector at Kharagpur station in West Bengal, came to the forefront when he bumped into Thomas, the owner of a tea shop on the platform, which Dhoni used to frequent at least 2-3 times a day. Thomas had travelled to Kolkata from Kharagpur to catch a glimpse of his now-famous customer. Dhoni is leading the Jharkhand team in the Vijay Hazare Trophy matches being played at various centres in West Bengal. Dhoni recognised him instantly and not just that, the former India skipper also invited his old friend for a grand dinner at the hotel where the Jharkhand team was staying. Thomas was moved by Dhoni’s gesture and announced that he would rename his tea stall in Kharagpur the ‘Dhoni Tea Stall’
