Dravid replied very modestly by saying, I can t remember exactly the first time but I know where it sort of came out from, where it originated.

I think later on, a reflection after going through my career, I really thought that it was really clever boy or girl sitting on a desk in some news paper office somewhere. Actually, looking into the future and sort of decided, Okay, lets name him The Wall today in a really positive sense. But also we can flip that around for our future headlines, which could be The Wall crumbles or another break in The Wall , or 'The Wall' fell down. As it happened, when I went through a bad patch, later on, I saw those headlines elsewhere in the newspaper. So, I think someone really clever in a newspaper office somewhere sitting there decided you know this is a good one for the future. <strong>Also Read: <a title="When a fan girl refused to leave Rahul Dravid's house" href="http://www.criclife.com/cricketainment/anecdotes/when-a-fan-girl-refused-to-leave-rahul-dravids-house-80539" target="_blank">When a fan girl refused to leave Rahul Dravid's house</a></strong><p></p><p></p>Well, this is what Dravid thinks behind his famous name The Wall and he is probably right as well.
