The face ev­ery­one liked

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - P SENTHIL SARAVANA DURAI

The news about the sad demise of Muham­mad Ali, boxing gi­ant, has sent shock­waves across the world. Ali sported the nat­u­ral physique that just added to his per­son­al­ity like any­thing. Sports are great thing in life and see­ing great per­son­al­i­ties in the field of sports and just em­brac­ing them whole­heart­edly are great feel­ings.

Go­ing down the mem­ory lane, I had heard and seen a lot of news about Ali through the me­dia dur­ing the days of my school and col­lege [in the 1990s]. Though many hap­pen­ings and un­cer­tain­ties [like his fight against dis­ease] had taken a heavy toll on Muham­mad Ali, the fact is that he had in­spired many and is still in­spir­ing mil­lions of peo­ple the world over. Any step to­wards es­tab­lish­ing a me­mo­rial com­mem­o­rat­ing boxing sport [game he loved and breathed till fag end of life] will be a great trib­ute to Ali. — Ma­ha­rash­tra, India
