Melbourne: He claims to have seen extremities of wealth and poverty in India and overwhelmed by the latter, Australian pacer Brett Lee has opened a music studio for slum children in Mumbai.
The pacer, who is a regular visitor to India not just for cricket but also for music and film assignments, said it was his first trip to the country in 1994 which left an indelible mark on his psyche.
"I'll never forget my first experience of seeing the poverty in India on my very first trip there. I've seen extreme wealth and extreme poverty in India. I guess I'm lucky to have experienced that because if you only see one side you can't fathom those extremes," Lee was quoted as saying by 'The Sydney Morning herald'.
