In an enchanting talk, ICC Hall of Famer Kapil Dev explains the importance of being passionate in life, and how his passion lead him to overcome all barriers and become one of the greatest cricketers to have ever played the game. The son of a humble farmer from Chandigarh with a plethora of wisdom up his sleeves, he left the audience mesmerized and perched on the edge of their seats, finally taking a bow to a standing ovation and thunderous roar.
