He lost a lot of things very early in life - his father at the age of 11, his eye when he was 20. So I think he was used to losses. He didn't dwell on these things at all and moved on with his life," said Tagore while releasing a book on Pataudi titled 'Pataudi: Nawab of Cricket' at the Kolkata Literary Meet in Kolkata on Saturday.<br /> <br /> According to Tagore, Pataudi's spirit of "courage under fire" held him together in trying times.<br /> <br /> "The grace and courage under fire quality that he had took care of him dealing with life," said Tagore.<br /> <br /> One of the trying times according to Tagore was when Pataudi lost his captaincy in 1970.<br /> <br /> "Saif (Ali Khan - the couple's son) came on the scene the same year and that took away a lot of hurt. He did build the team but he wasn't there when the matches were being won," said Tagore.<br /> <br /> The National award winner also divulged that Pataudi did not pen an autobiography as he felt unless he could speak the truth there was no point in writing.<br /> <br /> "He used to say if I cannot speak the truth what was the point of writing," said Tagore.
