Indian Test specialist Cheteshwar Pujara on Monday (October 8) turned tour guide for a day in Rajkot after the hosts finished off the first Test against the West Indies inside three days at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot.
The Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) shared a video on their official Twitter handle, where the local boy can be seen giving a sneak peek into the top 3 things that he would want people to do when they are in the city.
The BCCI posted the video with a caption, “Top 3 things to do in Rajkot @cheteshwar1 turns tour guide and gives us a sneak peek into the Top 3 things to do when in Rajkot - by @28anand.”
Meanwhile, Pujara started it off with the local cuisine, saying with a smile, “Gujarati thali is a must-try. You will have different options in the thali. But you must try Bajre ka rotla and Khichdi curry. You will also be served with some delicious desserts. You cannot avoid that.”
According to Pujara, the next thing is the Garba that the people must do when in Rajkot. The right-hander further added, “If you are in Rajkot during Navratri, you should try to be a part of the Garba which is a local traditional festival. While I don’t know Garba, I’m trying to learn. The atmosphere is fantastic so you should definitely be a part of the Garba and enjoy the festivity.”
The 30-year-old also feels that the people must also visit the historic school in Rajkot from where Mahatma Gandhi graduated. Pujara signed off by saying, “Number three on my list is the Alfred High School where our own father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi graduated from. You can visit this place, feel the aura and sense the rich Indian history.”
