On the fourth anniversary of the Mumbai terrorist attack (26th of November) that left 166 people dead and over 300 injured a statue of hero Sandeep Unnikrishnan was unveiled in Bangalore. Sandeep (31) was killed in action while fighting terrorists inside the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower. His last words were to his men “Do not come up, I will handle them”. His father a retired ISRO officer said during the unveiling ceremony that his family was living an aimless life after their son’s death and haven’t celebrated any festivals for the last four years.
What could they possible place in front of the Sir Alex Ferguson Stand at Old Trafford, you may well ask? Well, how about a nine-foot (2.75-metre) bronze statue of Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson? Yes the statue was unveiled this week. Alex Ferguson is the English Premier League’s most successful manager with 12 titles.
And what did the man himself have to say about the statue…”Normally people die before they see their statue – I’m outliving death,”
