Rohit Sharma has laid the foundation stone for an international cricket stadium and training centre at Heartfulness Institute in Hyderabad. The stadium will be named after the Team India vice-captain, who has been rested for the three-match T20 International home series against Sri Lanka.
The facility is being developed by the Heartfulness Institute on the outskirts of the Telangana Capital. The spiritual master of the institute, Kamlesh Patel accompanied the master batsman at the formal event to lay the foundation of the stadium which will offer training facilities to the youngsters at the institute, coming up at the Heartfulness global headquarter in Kanha Shantivanam, Chegur, Hyderabad.
“As soon as I entered Kanha Shantivanam, I felt an environment of positivity. It is very true when you are close to nature there is so much positivity. My experience with Heartfulness meditation has been amazing and I felt so light and so positive. There is so much negativity around and we need to increase positivity and meditation can certainly help,” Rohit Sharma said.
