Ghazal Alagh meets Kapil Dev

In an unexpected yet delightful encounter, Mamaearth co-founder Ghazal Alagh found herself seated next to India's first World Cup-winning captain, Kapil Dev, on a flight.

The meeting, which Ghazal described as "serendipitous," lasted for two hours and was filled with profound conversations and revelations. Sharing her experience on X (formerly Twitter) on March 15, Ghazal expressed her gratitude and awe for the lessons she learned from the cricket legend.

"Me and @therealkapildev Paji shared a 2 hour long flight and the lessons I learnt are invaluable," she wrote.


During their conversation, Kapil Dev imparted three key pieces of wisdom to Ghazal: to play not for the sake of winning but for passion, to focus on building one's children's character rather than obsessing over their scores, and to view challenges as adventures rather than problems. 

Netizens reaction

Ghazal's post about the encounter quickly captured the attention of social media users, garnering over 140,000 views. Netizens expressed their admiration for the cricket legend and the valuable lessons shared by him.
