Dhoni keen to complete graduation

Ranchi:

India's limited overs cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is keen to acquire a graduation degree despite his demanding career and busy calendar.

Dhoni met the principal of St Xaviers College, Nicholas Tete on Wednesday and expressed his desire to complete B.Com from the institution.

"Yes, he is keen to complete his graduation in commerce. Once Dhoni formally submits an application, the college will start the process," Tete told PTI here on Thursday.

He said the college, being an autonomous body, would have to seek guidance from its chancellor and the University Grants Commission (UGC) on the mode of education to be applied for Dhoni.

"Since he has a busy schedule, there will be a problem for him to attend classes regularly. Maybe, the distant education mode could suit him.

"In this mode he has to submit assignment papers and other related things," Tete said.

Dhoni had completed class XII from a DAV School in
Ranchi.

In 2006, the then Ranchi Deputy Commissioner Pradip Kumar had said that Dhoni would lead the Sarva Siksha Abhiyan to help enroll students at the primary level, but Dhoni could not turn up as the official communication never reached him.

However, now Dhoni's academic interest has made the students of the college euphoric.

"We are excited after learning that he will be among us. This will not only help his academic career but also inspire the students not to take education lightly," said Sourav Roy, a third-year student of the college's mass communication department.
