Here’s a nostalgia piece on the Little Master of cricket by a fan
Sachin Tendulkar – The Little Master who made cricket one of the most important things in the lives of billion people. Being lauded as one of the greatest, if not the greatest batsman, Sachin in his eventful career has many remarkable records to his name which can’t be broken possibly forever! As he turns 47 on 24th April, here are some of the best knocks of the Master Blaster in his career. Also, an emotional letter a 90’s kid has written for Sachin Tendulkar.

Here’s a fan’s Letter to Sachin:
“To all those who had fasted while you bat, you gave them a heartfelt, million-dollar meal. Sometimes you are the only reason for many of being happy. Being proud. Being not alone. Ahh, what would it take?? Just typing your name in YouTube and there you are, with your straight drives, square cuts, smiles and centuries.
You bettered lives. You created childhoods. You created careers goddamn and you changed the sport into a religion.
‘Anna, wo Sachin wala bat dhena!!’ How many kids would have asked this question while buying a bat from the shopkeeper. And the shopkeeper, who smiled for our madness, sold us the bat with red-blooded MRF sticker and watched us study the curve of the blade and practice the stance then and there.
It seems impractical, if we wish to go back to the past and want to watch you bat again in Sharjah, Perth and Wankhede. For us now, as unlucky as we are to be born 10 years later, we still have your memories. We can cherish them for the days and years to come.
We have our favorite heroes, movies and books. But they can’t give goosebumps every-time we watch the scenes and climax. We can’t cheer to those songs, as much as we did when you pushed that single and ran your 200th run. They can’t pull out tears from our eyes as you did when you walked back to touch the field. You demanded us to cheer. To cry. To love and to remember!
Thank you and #HappyBirthdaySachin
One of your Billion admirers.”
