“We must say ‘thank you’ to Chappell for giving this title to my son,” Dr V Satyabhama was quoted as saying by MiD-DAY.
“To us, our son is Very, Very Special because he is very modest and simple. He does not talk much and always respects elders. He prays twice-a-day and has all good qualities,” she added.
Both of Laxman’s parents are doctors. Laxman's father Dr V Shantharam is a respected physician in Hyderabad while his mother is a retired radiologist.
His mother said on Saturday at Hyderabad that had he not become a cricketer, he would have become a doctor also.
“Laxman took two days to decide his future. He had to appear for his Medical entrance exam and at the same time, he got a call to join the under-19 team in England. With his father’s consent, he decided to be a cricketer,” said Dr V Satyabhama.
