India’s heartthrob cricketer Hardik Pandya is in trouble, all thanks to his appearance on Karan Johar’s popular chat show ‘Koffee With Karan’. Here are 4 lessons you can learn from the unfortunate episode.

1.    Dignity

As a public figure, one has to be dignified and responsible while talking about topics like women, work and society. Hardik Pandya’s inappropriate responses to Johar’s questions have received a massive backlash from audience and media.

2.    Respect the Women

Treating the opposite sex with upmost respect is important. Amid the empowering campaigns like Me Too and Times Up, Hardik Pandya’s act of objectifying women is shameful.

3.    Onus of Responsibility

Being one of the very first cricketers to be invited on Koffee with Karan, Hardik Pandya was representing the entire cricket fraternity of India and his loose comments about women have strained image of everyone associated.

4.    Consequences

Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Well, in Pandya’s case it is the latter. Him being sent back from Australia despite being one of the most appreciated cricketers in playing 11 teaches us that no one is bigger than what’s right.
