Recalling the feats of several personalities of Jharkhand, President Ram Nath Kovind on Monday said cricketer MS Dhoni has made Ranchi famous in the world of cricket. The President was speaking with students during the 33rd convocation of the Ranchi University. "MS Dhoni met me at Raj Bhavan yesterday (Sunday) as a courtesy call. I felt good.
