While speaking to R Ashwin on his Instagram show ReminisceWithAsh, Harbhajan Singh said that he is pained to see such distress among Indian people during the coronavirus pandemic, especially those who are underprivileged. The 39-year-old added that he plans to do farming once he retires from the game and distributes free vegetables among the needy.

Harbhajan Singh claims that he has a strong desire to get into farming after he retires from the game. He revealed that he is keen to buy some land and grow vegetables which he can distribute among the poor and the needy. Harbhajan Singh reckoned that he has earned enough money, which he probably can't spend in a lifetime and as a result, he would rather be giving to people who are not as fortunate as him. Harbhajan Singh opined that the fans have given him a lot and it will be his way of giving something back to them.

Harbhajan Singh's views echo those of his CSK captain, MS Dhoni who already seems to be enjoying a life of retirement without actually retiring officially from cricket, in his Ranchi farmhouse by indulging in organic farming.
