#Sachin Tendulkar Retires After Playing 200 Tests; To Be Conferred Bharat Ratna

Author:

#sachin retires

Like him or dislike him , admire him or denounce him, but you cannot ignore him. Sachin Tendulkar has finally retired after playing cricket for 24 years. The star cricketer dedicated all his years to the game and decided to call it a day after playing 200 tests, with the final one against West Indians at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. The Indian Government has decided to confer the highest civilian award, Bharat Ratna, to Sachin, recognizing his contribution to the game, in general, and Indian cricket, in particular. With unbeatable world records, Sachin will remain an icon for everyone alike-including players and people from all walks of life-who have witnessed Sachin's exploits in the field for 24 years. To me, Sachin's retirement has come as a shock, for I cannot imagine cricket without Tendulkar. But as they say, everyone has to call it a day one day, I have to console myself!

Check Sachin's retirement speech here

The greatest cricketer of all time made the decision with a heavy heart, because cricket without Tendulkar and Tendulkar without cricket is unimaginable. With unbeatable records in both forms of the game, Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar has enjoyed every moment of his game. I still remember the day his father died and Tendulkar had to return to India from England while the Indian cricket team was playing world cup. Sachin returned to England to serve his country immediately after his father;s funeral. Sachin scored a century against Kenya the very day and dedicated his century to his dad.

Sachin is a Genius

A few people in this world are born to bring cheers on the faces of others. They are that creation of God that needs no introduction. Words fall short when it comes to describing such people. Every person comes on earth to do something significant. People like Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar are born to bring smiles on the faces of the depressed. Yes, it is very true. I have seen and felt it. At times, when I felt depressed, Sachin helped bring the smile on my face.

The world's best batsman deserves nothing less than accolades for the sheer courage he has shown both on and off the field. He is not only the best batsman in the world but also a human being, who helps others in their trouble. There is more to Sachin than is visible on screen. His off screen role is equally praiseworthy. He helps thousands of orphaned children. His generosity knows no bounds.

He is a darling of millions, superstar, a billionaire, but the most important of all a human being with a humane nature.

He is blessed with the most sublime touches, the courage to face the most fearsome bowler, the smile that can enlighten several faces, the statesmanship to steal victory from the opposition camp, the penchant to win laurels for his country, the magnanimity to donate, the patience to bear criticism, a heart that loves INDIA and a desire to decorate India with victories.

All such qualities have made him an iconic figure of the present generation. I am sure the future generation will treat him the same. People like Tendulkar are very hard to see in this world.

What can be the biggest compliment for this genius than Sir Don Bradman's statement that he sees himself in Sachin.

It is not for nothing that he is considered the best batsman in the world, curly-haired Tendulkar is a class above all. He is the highest century getter in both one dayers and tests. He is the highest run getter in both forms of the game. He is the highest "man of the match" award winner to date. He has many more records to his credit. He was the first to win the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award, the highest honor for a sportsperson in India.

For all this, he deserves the highest civilian award in the country, the Bharat Ratna. He deserves nothing less than that.

Sachin's wife, Anjali Tendulkar, is a daughter of an industrialist, Ashok Mehta. Both got married on 25 May 1995. She is a doctor by profession, a pediatrician in particular. Both make a brilliant couple, despite of the fact that Sachin's better half is four-year older than him. Well, age never makes a difference, and it should never be a hindrance in a relation bred on love and entwined in love. It was a love-cum-arrange marriage. Both are blessed by 2 kids -- Sara and Arjun.

Sachin's father, Ramesh Tendulkar, was a teacher. Therefore, Sachin knows the doctrine of hard work and perseverence. His father died in 1999, when Sachin was playing the World Cup in England. Thereafter, Sachin has been dedicating his hard work and laurels to him. Lucky are his parents that they got a son like Sachin.

Gob Bless!

दुःख है मुझे की अब आपको खेलते देख पाना संभव नहीं है किन्तु अभी तक जितनी क्रिकेट आपने खेली उसमे आपका धैर्य देखते बनता है, ये सार्वभौमिक सत्य है की सचिन जैसा ना हुआ है और ना भविष्य में होगा,मै प्रभु से दुआ करता हूँ की आप जब जहाँ जैसे रहो भगवान् आपको और खुशी नवाजे और आप यूं ही हमारे दिल में राज करो....लव यू एंड मिस यू ऑन ठ फील्ड .....:)
