Sachin Tendulkar: The Kohinoor of India

As I sit down to pen these lines I get the feeling that the person about whom I am going to write is probably the most beloved son of this great nation. Even if someone tries to include the life and performances of this great soul in an article, I am sure they are bound to fail as this man is beyond the scope of imagination, beyond the reach of any analysis and beyond the pages of a silly book. So here is tribute from a person who has grown up watching this great man and one who has been greatly influenced by his modesty.
Man of records, Master Blaster, Kohinoor of India these titles prove to be insuffient to describe Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar. Starting as a 16 year old boy, Tendulkar is at the zenith of success and amazingly his hunger doesn’t seem to end. After Starting the career against a formidable Pakistan side there has been no looking back for Sachin Tendulkar as he still continues to create history every time he walks on to the field.
Most appearances in ODI’s, most ODI hundreds, most test hundreds, most international hundreds, most runs in test and one day cricket history, most runs in a calendar year, most runs in any world cup, the pages of record books would prove to be insufficient to record the achievements of this cricketing Maestro.
As Tendulkar enters into his 21st year in international cricket there are many more records waiting to be made/ broken by this indomitable soul.
There is no one of his stature in World cricket today and even after reaching the apex of success which others can only dream for, this man still remains unbelievably modest and humble, unperturbed by any controversy in his prolific career.
His critics have become adept to accept their defeat as every time Sachin proves them to be wrong by his match winning performances.
The double hundred that he hit recently which was the first of its kind was another jewel in the crown of the King of cricket. Many cricket analysts later confessed though they thought Indian dynamite Virender Sehwag to be the hot favorite for that record but they didn’t dare to write off Master Blaster from achieving that record.
Tendulkar’s performance in the recently concluded IPL was outstanding with him surpassing Shaun Marsh as the highest run getter in a single IPL tournament giving a huge jolt to his critics who thought T-20 was far from his reach. Yet another record!!!!!!!!!!
Sachin Tendulkar has been a champion both on and off the field and by far the best human being to have played this beautiful game. But still his dream of India winning a world cup with him being a member is still unfulfilled. With him and Team India in rip-roaring form off late we can hope that this time God will shower his mercy on the Indian team and give India’s most beloved son a perfect farewell gift.
I would at last recall what former cricketer Navjot Singh Siddhu once said about Tendulkar-
“Jaha har sar jhukh jaye wahi mandir hai, Jaha har nadi sama jaye wahi samandar hai aur jo har jung jeet jaye wahi SACHIN TENDULKAR hai”
-where every head gets bowed is a Temple,
Where every river gets converged is a sea,
And who gets victory in every battle is SACHIN TENDULKAR.
THANK YOU.

    Sachin is the most talked about cricketer in the whole universe (there are still some who criticise him too :-) this legend is by and large the greatest ambassador of cricket, i believe (have all reasons to). the more we see him and the more we know him, the more we like him. he has a class in everything he does. although he was not my favorite cricketer so far, i cant imagine cricket without Sachin Tendulkar.

    Hi Yuvarajan,
    Indeed Sachin is a great gift of God for Cricket Fans across the Globe, No borders, No Country, No Nations. He is simply a cricket cracker for the entire cricket lovers. In Pakistan people worship Imran Khan, Waseem Akram, Saeed Anwar, Inzi and many more but i worship this great legend of cricket.
