It was refreshing to read about Indian Badminton champ Pullela Gopichand's refusal to endorse Coca-Cola for the simple reason: "I don't drink any of these soft drinks. So how can I advertise them and have kids drink them."
Would a cricketer, who everyone knows earns much more than any other sportsperson in the country, have the character to refuse such a lucrative advertising contract?
It feels good to know that some people are not corrupted by fame and the lure of the lucre.
Way to go, champ!
