t seemed like any other day in Bangalore. Traffic moved at a snail's pace. FM stations were still playing 'Chamak Chalo' and the locals continued to crib about how the temperature was a couple of notches higher than usual.

But there was one thing different. Bangalore's favourite son was calling curtains on a huge chapter of his life.  A chapter that not only rewrote records of the nation's favourite pastime but also brought back words like determination, integrity and dignity to the gentleman's game

The media room at the Chinnaswamy stadium (venue of Dravid's exit press conference) had the national press trickling in much before the scheduled start.  The mood was already nostalgic and the Karnataka State Cricket Association contributed by greeting everyone with despondent instrumental music from 'Veer Zaara' (Tere liye, hum hain jiye, honton ko siye…Dil mein magar, jalte rahe, chaahat ke diye). 

Shortly after, in walked the man of the moment - Rahul Sharad Dravid with his father, wife and young sons by his side to be part of his farewell.

Dravid's many records

- First batsman to score a century in all Test-playing nations.

- Most catches in Test cricket (210).

- Second-highest run-maker in Test cricket after Sachin Tendulkar.

- Was ICC's Player of the Year and Test Player of the Year in 2004.

- Recorded the highest-ever partnership in ODIs with a 331-run stand for the second wicket with Sachin Tendulkar against New Zealand in November 1999.

Among the next generation of players, he finds Virat Kohli most exciting.

"You could see then that he was a very exceptional talent coming in from the U-19s. It's heartening to see that it's happening [his coming through] at a very good time for India. He's developed and grown over the last 2-3 years and I think that in the last one year or six months, it has been really a culmination of that so I hope he goes on to bigger and better things because that's going to be important for India.

"You want not only him, but 3-4 more guys to establish themselves as world-class performers for it to be really good thing for Indian cricket."

Kohli has been tipped to become the next Rahul Dravid by former India captain Anil Kumble. India would surely love for that prophecy to come true.

It's just a natural cycle. I believe that a lot of our younger cricketers nowadays have a lot of exposure and ability. If you look at a lot of the guys, they are vying for those Test spots which might open up in the next year or so. They have played a lot of ODI cricket and have so much of exposure and experience."

"I remember in 1996, when me and Sourav [Ganguly] went to England and Laxman joined us, it was a new group of players that was coming through and trying to establish ourselves, so that will happen in Indian cricket as well over the next two years.
