I have always admired Harsha Bhogle- not only as a fine cricket commentator but for being one who chose to make a living out of his passion- for cricket. Read this interview with him in the Business Standard. He and his wife, Anita run Prosearch Consultants. I like Harsha for his knowledge of the game of cricket, his fluency and his humility.
These days we are much more open to the idea of rather unconventional careers.
