Dr. Bhavil Acharya- Champion On & Off the cricket field…
Coronavirus has made all of us realize the importance of unity, humanity and harmony, many people during this pandemic have selflessly risked their own lives to bring a positive change in this stress driven society. One of those examples of brave humans who has done a noble job for the society is Dr. Bhavil Acharya. Dr. Bhavil since the time lockdown was announced, he started conducting Covid Emegency services voluntarily for BMC.
Speaking to Cricketgraph, we got to know Bhavil has so far donated around 6000 litres of hand sanitizers to the migrant labours. He even personally visited the labour camp areas to spread awareness and information about this pandemic to the labours who had no idea about the do’s and don’t’s during this pandemic. Apart from that, Bhavil has tested over 15,000 people in the labour camp areas since the last few months, while he has also voluntarily conductied ICMR registered testing.
Dr. Bhavil shared with Cricketgraph “I have bought PPE kits from my own pocket and serving the BMC voluntarily, even the hand sanitizers which were donated to migrant labors is bought through my own savings. Apart from that I have also sanitized a large number of areas in Santa Cruz, approximately 25-30 societies where I have personally conducted sanitization as well as shared awareness about coronavirus”
When you hear such stories, the faith in humanity gets restored & covering Bhavil becomes all the more relevant because he is also an avid cricketer who plays club & corporate level cricket. Bhavil who is an MCA registered player has played Kanga League representing Muslim United and Paramount Cricket Club.
Bhavil also plays corporate cricket representing Andheri Team in Shri Barku G Patil T20 League amongst other tournaments. In 2003, Bhavil was declared “Man of the Series” in All India Inter Medical Cup while in 2015 he was declared the “best batsman” in Mumbai Cricket Challenge Tournament where he scored the highest runs. In 2017, Bhavil received “man of the match” award in MCC finals where he received Harley Davidson from the hands of Sachin Tendulkar while his team won Prize of Rs 9 lakhs as the tournament winners under his captaincy.
Dr. Bhavil also shared that ” If i would’nt have been a doctor, i would have been a full time Cricketer” and we can certainly agree looking at his love for the game. Cricketgraph salutes such selfess humans like Dr.Bhavil who are truly champions on and off the cricket field.
