Default Coming soon: a Dhoni temple in Ranchi

Mahendra Singh Dhoni is no god but for his legions of fans, the Team India skipper is no less either and to pay tribute to their hero, his admirers are planning to build a temple here.

"We the Dhoni Fans Club are raising funds among ourselves to build a temple in our idol's name. There are also many well-wishers supporting us," club President Jitendra Kumar Singh told?media here today.

"We thought if Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan can have their wax statues in London, why not build a temple and install a five-foot statue in the temple of our very own boy?" Singh said.

But the moot question remains, will Dhoni agree to inaugurate a temple having his statue on the alter."We will try to convince him. Let us?see what transpires," Singh said.

The temple, under construction on the outskirts of Ranchi on a 1650 sqft area, is expected to be completed next year. The Dhoni fans club have also collected two hundred photographs of their idol giving glimpses of his days of childhood, youth, induction into the Indian team, the image of his flowing mane and the latest pictures to be put up in a gallery.
