A Tribute To Sachin

Filled under:
Posted by: danish Ahmed 4:12 AM

I had reserved my 100th post to dedicate it to Sachin Tendulkar on his 100th centuries in International Cricket. But I could never start on it. Being a pucca Sachin fan, the odds are huge that once I start writing, my own admiration for him would lead to exaggeration, yet I wanted my tribute to be as impartial as possible, to try understand the man who changed the game of Cricket forever and the profound impact he had on the psyche of an entire generation of Indians. However, as Sachin bids adieu to Cricket I find no reason to refrain myself from completing it even if it means going overboard with every superlative I can recall. What is it about Sachin that an entire nation turn him into god of Cricket ? Of course, it is his almost supernatural skill with the bat and the game of Cricket but at least for me it is more than just Cricket.
