When Laxman met Jaisimha

Late 1980s.

Bandar Road in Vijayawada.

A young man is trying to cross the busy road.

From the opposite side of the road, a tall and lean man emerges.

He then hopped on to the pillion of a passing cyclist.

The teenager then met the charismatic elder at the Indira Gandhi Municipal Corporation Stadium where the Nutrine Under-13 tournament was to get underway shortly.

M.L. Jaisimha, the elder.

V.V.S. Laxman, the young boy.
