Happy B’day To The Greatest Athlete and Human Being I Have Seen In My Life, @sachintendulkar.
Here’s my tribute to a man who’s been the inspiration for billons around the globe.
They say all men are equal in God’s eyes or all men are created equally but when you watch Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar play you simply can’t stop yourself from thinking seriously about those words time and again.
Sachin came from a middle class family like us and even after getting illustrious success in his carrier, even after named as the greatest cricketer the game has ever seen he never forget his roots and his values with which he was brought up by his parents. In his 24 years of staggering career there were hardly any controversies he’s been involved in. Post his retirement the way he handles his personal life and the way he acts it gives us an impression that this man wins at life in every possible department not only as a cricketer but also as son, as a husband, as a father and above all as a great great human being.
Talking about his spine tingling, jaw dropping and out of this world career of 24 years the world know every thing about this little miracle from god. More than 30000 runs, 100 hundreds, world cup, numerous series victories, umpteen MOMs and infinite records that came in his path and he thrashed every single one of them and put his name on it. There are two eras of cricket before sachin and after sachin. Period. He has rewritten all the history books there was before him. He came, he saw, he conquered and he left.
The joy and the feeling of watching this little genius play is something that next to impossible to put in through words. I mean when this man play his trademark straight drive, all of a sudden the world seems all the more beautiful. But i have one regret i will take all my life with me and that regret is i couldn’t able to see him play in his prime. Sachin’s prime was 1990 to 2003. I started watching cricket from 2004 when i was 6 India were on tour to Pakistan. But even in his final years there weren’t players who can sit on the same table as this man even in their prime. Thank you, God, for letting me watch this man play.
