The centre was inaugurated by Prakash Padukone and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/Rahul-Dravid" target="_blank">Rahul Dravid</a> in the presence of Paralympic gold medallists Murlikant Petkar and Devendra Jhajharia as guests of honour. The center has been designed by former rifle shooter and Olympic champion Bindra. <p></p> <p></p>A day prior to the inauguration, both Bindra and Dravid were present in the GoSports Foundation's annual Athletes Conclave. During the event, Dravid shared his words of wisdom on failures. <p></p> <p></p><strong>'You need to learn to fail well'</strong> <p></p> <p></p>"I am quite qualified to speak on failure. I played internationals 604 times, but I didn t cross 50 on 410 of those occasions. When you fail, you tend to brush a lot of things under the carpet. You try to blame someone, find an excuse. But it s a really good opportunity to learn about yourself. <p></p> <p></p>Like when you fail on an overseas tour, one way to react to is to say, 'these conditions are not right, or I didn t get enough practice' and think 'when I play in India again, there are six Tests hopefully against Sri Lanka the way they are playing I will make up my average. But the greatest players I played with looked at it as an opportunity. So you need to learn to fail well,' stated the former Indian skipper. <p></p> <p></p><strong>On his record partnership with VVS Laxman at Eden Gardens</strong> <p></p> <p></p>"We had lost badly in Mumbai (during Border Gavaskar Trophy 2001) and my form wasn t good. I was demoted to No. 6. When I was walking in during the second innings, Steve Waugh said Rahul at 6? next Test at 12? But I just told myself, let me see how many one balls can I play . It was the simplest thing I could do and it worked," concluded Dravid.
