a man millions of Indians adore

Sachin Ramesh Tendulakar ….. Well I can spend my whole life to blog about someone like our  little master of Indian cricket.. the man each and every Indians adore and worship…The number of records he has broken or created were just staggering.The way he still plays,even the shorter version of the game T20 is inspiring  a lot of youngsters in India who play cricket…. In spite of all this he remains one of the most humble human beings you will come across…

An article from Time magazine about him:

When Sachin Tendulkar travelled to Pakistan to face one of the finest bowling attacks ever assembled in cricket, Michael Schumacher was yet to race a F1 car, Lance Armstrong had never been to the Tour de France, Diego Maradona was still the captain of a world champion Argentina team, Pete Sampras had never won a Grand Slam.

When Tendulkar embarked on a glorious career taming Imran and company, Roger Federer was a name unheard of; Lionel Messi was in his nappies, Usain Bolt was an unknown kid in the Jamaican backwaters. The Berlin Wall was still intact, USSR was one big, big country, Dr Manmohan Singh was yet to “open” the Nehruvian economy.

It seems while Time was having his toll on every individual on the face of this planet, he excused one man. Time stands frozen in front of Sachin Tendulkar. We have had champions, we have had legends, but we have never had another Sachin Tendulkar and we never will.
