“In BHS, Allahabad - the Boys’ High School - in the year 1953 -54, when I was in the 4th or 5th Std., and Babuji was in England for his studies, I wrote to him that I had entered the Boxing ring in School, to enhance the Cock House points of my House, the Blue House .. and that after one successful bout, had got defeated in the next one .. and that my physical condition against a stronger opponent had given me a black eye and a bleeding nose,” read an excerpt of his post.

In his expressive writing, AB elaborated, “Some several days later - several, because parcels and letters came by boat then  - a book arrived for me ..  on boxing .. and inside on the first page was his signature, the date of purchase and destination and a quote from him: “Good hard blows are delights to the mind” !!!”

The megastar star further added, “On a visit to St Catharine’s College, Cambridge during a shooting stint in England around the early 2000′s to see the College Information manual and seek Babuji’s name, I was, on coming to know I was there, accosted by the Faculty Members of the College and invited over for a cup of tea and a chat .. and I narrated this incident to them.”

He concluded by saying that it was the heartiest laughter he had ever witnessed from a Britisher and he discovered that tales of a fight, any fight, seem to attract their attention rather more prominently than fish and chips.
