Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly is celebrating his 48th birthday today. Veteran Sourav Ganguly, who has been instrumental in taking Indian cricket to a new height, has spoken of a tremendous event connected to his life.
According to media reports, Sourav Ganguly recently recalled his childhood saying that he saw ‘ghosts’ in the house. “I saw a ghost in my house,” Ganguly was quoted as saying. The ghost belonged to a young boy working at my house. That day was Sunday. I was upstairs and spending time with my family. I was 12-13 years old at the time and that day my family told me to go and get the boy tea. ‘
In an interview to a private sports channel, Ganguly said, “When I went to the kitchen to have tea with the boy, he was not there. I was then told it would be on the roof. But he wasn’t even there. Then I went to his room looking for him.
As I entered the room, I saw him running on the boundary wall on the roof of a 6-story building. If he had fallen, the situation would have been much worse. ‘ The former captain said he saw this and shouted for help but no one came.
According to the report, Gagunli said, “Then I went downstairs and called my uncle and took him there but the young man was not there. I think he’s dead or gone. We kept searching for it.
The young boy was hanging on one of the large coconut trees near our house. It’s been more than 30 years. Ganguly said his family then called a fire brigade team and tried to bring the young man down but he did not want to go down.
