#CaptainCool: Dhoni Wins A Padma Bhushan And Our Hearts, This Time In An Army Uniform

A man amongst men, MS Dhoni has once again filled our hearts with pure joy ad left us beaming when he received his Padma Bhushan award in the Indian Army uniform. Receiving the award from the President Of India, Ram Nath Kovind, everybody’s favourite cricketer stood marched down proudly in his honorary Lt Colonel rank uniform.  

This is not the first time the former Indian caption has been conferred with such a distinct honour. Dhoni received his Padma Shri back in 2009 and was bestowed honorary Lt. Colonel rank in 2011 by the territorial army. The Indian Army gave MS Dhoni this Honoury commission, as Dhoni being a youth icon will inspire many youngsters to follow his lead and serve the country. 

Joining his side at the ceremony was his loving and supporting wife, Sakshi Dhoni, who was glowing with pride in a resplendent yellow saree (supporting Chennai Super Kings, maybe!). The man of the hour was also snapped in with his adorable daughter post the ceremony, who is pulling off a Beret better than we ever could!
