Sachin Tendulkar -India’s favourite son and a perfect Youth Icon!

Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar, The man who unites the nation, the man who connects the hearts and the man who has brought lots of joy and glories to the nation; true, sincere, honest, humble and a perfect team man, India’s favourite son and a perfect Youth Icon! These are the words comes to my mind to describe the God of Cricket.

Breaking records & creating new milestones is no more a surprise for either Sachin Tendulkar or any cricket lover. Though it is no more remain surprise, it has certainly become a cause for celebration!

“The Great” man has completed 50 Test Hundreds today and he is not far away of completing 100 international Hundreds. 50 Test Hundreds! What an achievement this is! He surpassed Sunil Manohar Gavaskar – another “Great Man” – to score most hundreds in test matches and since then he is leading the list. (It was an emotional moment while sachin became the first man to hit a double century in an ODI and Sunil Gavaskar was trying to touch the feet of Sachin Tendulkar and Sachin was protesting. Two greats having this much respect for each other! It can happen only in India.)

How anyone who was watching cricket can forget his debut at the age of 16 who became the talk of the cricket playing nations! From his first international tour, he started justifying his extraordinary talent. It didn’t take long for the world to recognize the class and caliber of the young prodigy and very soon he became nightmare of the oppositions. It’s been 21 years since then but he is still ruling the cricket world. It was expected that the young man will become one of the great batsmen but no one had a hint that he would be the God of Cricket. It was predicted that he would break the world records but nobody knew that he would pass the barrier of 50 Test centuries.

It is not just the talent but it is about hard work and discipline that has kept him a threat for the oppositions. Gary Kirsten said in an interview that among all the Indian cricketers, Sachin Tendulkar spends the highest time in the nets. He is the first man to enter the nets and the last to leave. This is the discipline he carries.

He is now 37 years old and he has spent more than 21 years into international cricket but still getting better and better. This year he has scored 1539 runs in test matches with an average of 85.50 with the help of 7 centuries. Out of those there were 2 scores went pass 200. Asking sachin about himself, he said that he is still a student of the game. He always believed and still believes that the game is bigger than anybody.

Talent can make one “The Greatest Cricketer” but some of extra qualities that Sachin carries - i.e humbleness, hard work, discipline & dedication - has made him “The God of Cricket.”

Congratulations to you God of Cricket! It’s our privilege to be born in the “Sachin Yug”! The nation loves you “Little Master”, and wants to see you playing forever and ever and ever and ever….!!!!
