Guest Article: What is Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar?

This Article was written by a friend for the cricket blog which me and my room-mate Pattrow maintains. Just couldn’t stop the urge to post it on my personal blog too. Enjoy the article:

What is Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar?

Apart from the fact that you were born in India there is one more reason that makes you proud of being an Indian, it is Sachin. It is that Sachin Tendulkar is an Indian. It is that Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar puts on that blue jersey which makes you proud.

Some people become talented. Some people are born talented. Then there are some people who are gifted. Sachin does not fall in any of these categories. Sachin Tendulkar is beyond talents and beyond being gifted. He is, Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar.

There are some people on screen you wait to see. There are some people on screen for whom you skip other things. Then there is Sachin who makes you leave everything, mind you, everything else and watch the screen. Sachin Tendulkar makes you hide the remote because you cannot take your eyes off him. Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar makes you hug your television set, quite a few times, many a times.

There are some people who break records. Then there are some people who make new records. When Sachin plays, you don’t watch the score-card, you watch him. Sachin Tendulkar is beyond records, beyond statistics. So, when an under -19 or gully cricket is happening, one says...see that shot was like the Master Blaster’s. One doesn’t anymore compare him to anything or anybody. Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar is the comparison.

There are some people, who when they fall sick make to the front page of national dailies. Then there are some people who when they fall sick, comments are taken from doctors and made the headlines. When Sachin falls sick, the whole country prays for him. When Sachin Tendulkar falls sick, quotes from fans, common masses across the nation make the news. When he had a tennis elbow, there were front page infographics showing what exactly has gone wrong in a certain ligament of the posterior side the elbow. It is then, that people, newspaper vendors, tea-sellers, pan-shop owners, who have no clue, absolutely no clue about what those photos are, discuss those intricate biological diagrams, test reports and x-rays, knowing that they do not understand a word of it all. They do it because of one simple reason; those graphics are of Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar.

There are some people who play. There are some people who play exceptionally well. Sachin is crusader on the pitch, so even if we lose, we know there is this one man who inevitably fought till the end. Sachin Tendulkar is the hope on the pitch, the hope that as long he is there at the crease, a miracle can happen anytime. Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar is the smile on the pitch.

There are some people who are role-models. There are some people who represent a sport. Sachin is the other name for cricket in India. Sachin Tendulkar is the super-hero of millions and millions of kids and youngsters, a super-hero of his own kind who wins the combat by sweeps and strokes. Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar is the photograph of a man with his bat held up under the tag, C for Cricket, on a worn out poster to teach kids alphabets.

“Sach is life.”

Info: Writer is an admirer of Sachin and a potential journalist. Also the writer badly wishes to know what you think of the blog entry.

amazingly written.. N so true.. Sachin has become a legend. Maybe our kids and even their kids would read abt sachin in their history books.. Who knows wat will happen.. And how far this legend would go..

Wish i could appreciate the writer for his excellent article.. If he has a blog then maybe u could just send the link..

SSV said...

Yes totally agree.and understand the urge to post it!! Really well compiled thoughts..
Such is Sachin ! .. And to add a cliche... If Cricket is my religion..Sachin is my God!He is no incarnation .. no messiah .. He is the GOD himself!!

Pratik Gupta said...

@Chanz: If sachin doesnt go down in history, I will rewrite the history book and make my children read that :)

BTW writer dont wish to share the personal blog link but your appreciation for the blog will be duly conveyed.


@SSV: Glad that you liked it! and Hail Sachin! :)

Very well written and neat choice of words. Any amount of praise is not enough for the man. Sachin is an icon.

'Sach' is life!
Short of adjectives for him.
The greatest cricketer i have ever seen and above that a great human being.
Remember the lines he said when he completed 15k
"people throw stones at u and u turn them into Milestones"
That was from the heart.
Will soon write a tribute for him.
Great wrk!!

Cheers

Nuts
