Speech by Shashank Mane, UNAIDS Intern on the occassion of the visit of International Cricket Council President, David Morgan to UNAIDS Secretariat. Geneva, 17 November 2008
As a youngster, like for many children in India, my dream was to become a cricket player for my country. Being anything else seemed to be almost unnatural. However, this dream was detoured when I moved away from my homeland. After that, I had limited access to playing cricket - but the influence that cricket had on my life and the values it instilled in me live on in me to this day and probably will forever.
