Interestingly, Dhoni, who applied for the teaching post in Raipur, the capital of Chhattisgarh, gave his father’s name as Sachin Tendulkar. The applicant qualified for the pre-selection interview and accordingly shortlisted Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the son of Sachin Tendulkar for interview. This interesting incident came to the notice of all when the said candidate was not present for the interview.
Fifteen applicants were due to be interviewed on Friday. When Mahendra Singh Dhoni was not present, it raised suspicions among the officials. They called the number given in the application and considered the application as fake as they did not pick up the phone. It is very clear that this application is fake as the name of a member of a family with different family names matches the names of two famous cricketers.
The news has been taken up by social media in a celebratory manner. The discussion on social media that MS Dhoni is the son of Sachin Tendulkar is causing a lot of laughter. Many are coming to the scene with reactions. One wonders if MS Dhoni is going to stop playing cricket and become a teacher.
According to the application submitted by the candidate, MS Dhoni holds an engineering degree from CSV University. As soon as the information came out, other candidates posted it on social media and the news went viral. Authorities are preparing to take legal action against the fake candidate.
Although the officials have admitted that the application is fake, everyone is confused as to how all the other procedures were completed and reached the interview. If the police register an FIR against the incident and conduct an investigation, it will be interesting to see how the whole incident came about. Even so, owning one is still beyond the reach of the average person.
