Full body painted in tricolor, hair style with map of India and huge tricolor in hands. The fun of the match is not complete until this person is seen in the cricket stadium. This person is Sudhir Chaudhary. Sudhir, a resident of Muzaffarpur in Bihar, is currently in Raipur, the capital of Chhattisgarh. Team India has arrived to cheer the Legends in the Road Safety World Cricket Series. In conversation with Dainik NewsBust India, interesting stories of life were shared. It was also told that what was the reason when a normal student became crazy about Sachin and did life in the name of cricket.
It is from the year 2001-02. Sudhir, who was a cricket fan since childhood, was studying in college then. Sudhir Chaudhary used to play inter college cricket. India’s cricket match was to be held in the famous stadium Eden Gardens, then saw the live match for the first time. In the year 2002, he wanted to meet Sachin after reaching such a stadium, but then due to tennis elbow injury, Sachin went abroad.
This is how the stadium of Raipur reached.
A few months later, he went to Mumbai by bicycle and met Sachin in Sudhir. Seeing this fan’s craze, Sachin gave him the entry pass of the match. Just after that this cycle continues till today. Now Sachin always gives Sudhir near the match. Sudhir has a VIP entry in the match. Tendulkar’s obsession overshadowed Sudhir to such an extent that he left his graduation in the middle and now only lives the life of a big fan of cricket.

only cricket is my job
Sudhir told that he does some part time work. But they do not have a fixed source of income. When asked how the house runs, Sudhir clearly said that he has no financial base. He lives only in the fun of cricket. Other family members watch the work, friends and relatives also bear the travel expenses of their travels. Whenever any kind of advertisement is shot in a sports series, Sudhir gets some money.
Wherever he passes, Sudhir creates an atmosphere of cricket.
Sachin sends abroad
Sudhir told that Sachin Tendulkar himself bears the expenses from entry pass to visa and air tickets in matches to be held abroad. Because of him, Sudhir comes to watch matches and support India’s team. Sudhir told that because of Sachin Tendulkar, I have traveled to many countries like Australia, Dubai, New Zealand.
Fans go crazy posing for pictures with Sudhir.
asylum was ready to send
Sudhir told that in the initial days when he started going to the cricket stadium by painting himself in the color of the tricolor in this way, the family members got angry. The matter got so bad that people started calling Sudhir mad. Sudhir told Dainik NewsBust India that preparations had been made to send him to the insane asylum. In the beginning, the situation was such that when he used to reach outside the stadium to watch the match, the police used to drive away with sticks. Sudhir was also taken into custody by the police. But even after all these difficulties, the craze for cricket did not diminish.
cricket is life partner
Sudhir did not marry because of his passion for cricket. He rejected many relationships. Even the family members do not even ask him to marry him after seeing his passion for cricket. Sudhir himself has declared that he has made cricket his life partner. Sudhir says that when cricket is my life then why should I make someone else my life partner.
Sudhir paints his own body.
takes 8 hours to prepare
Sudhir told that the paint he applies on his body is enamel paint. It takes about 7 hours to write Tendulkar to paint the entire body in the color of the tricolor. After this it takes 1 hour to color your hair and make tricolor on the face. Sudhir is prepared like this for about 8 hours. It also takes 2 to 3 hours to clean this color after the match is over.
Life sacrificed for Sachin
In the match played in Raipur on Wednesday, Sudhir kept on unfurling the huge tricolor for almost an hour before the toss. Cheered the team throughout the match without stopping. The next day when the match took place on Thursday, Sudhir continued to do this for hours and encouraged the team by hoisting the tricolor with the same zeal throughout the match. When asked are you not tired? Sudhir said – There is so much love for Sachin Tendulkar in the heart that one does not feel tired, now life is sacrificed for cricket and Sachin. I will continue to encourage Team India by hoisting the tricolor like this as long as I am alive.
