My Son, Sourav Ganguly

November 10, 2008

As told to Indrani Roy Mitra

Chandidas Ganguly is the proud owner of one of Asia's best printing business houses, but most Indians know him as the father of cricketer Sourav 'Dada' Ganguly, who retired from the game today.

We caught up with the senior Ganguly at his Behala home in Kolkata a few hours after his son missed a century by 15 runs. Sourav's father had yet to get over the fact that Dada had missed a ton. "But then, cricket is a one-ball game," he said.
