The God of Cricket – Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar

“If cricket is a religion for 125 crores Indians, then definitely Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar is the GOD of this religion”, “Sachin conquered the Mount Everest of ODI Cricket”, “Sachin’s thunder on Gwalior ground”, “First man on planet to reach 200 in ODI and it is the Super-Man from India”, “Today is the day of celebration”, and amid all these news blazes on different news channels, I celebrated this eventful day with a bottle of Kingfisher Strong.

After a tensed day in office, slashing Sachin’s double century against South Africa, first ever in one international cricket, came to me as a pacifier. In light of the milestone that Sachin has achieved, nobody seemed to bother about the result of the match and so do I, but just now Headlines Today started flashing the breaking news that India has won the match by 153 runs. In addition, with this I completed my last sip of the best creation of humankind. I grew up watching Sachin hitting 6s, 4s, centuries, half centuries, winning matches for India and I really cannot envision what would happen to the followers of India’s prevalent religion when he retires. However strained you are, Sachin’s century or any match-winning inning would have always brought a smile on your face.

Being an ardent fan of Shri. Hariwansh Rai Bachchan, I got reminded of a line of his epic creation, Madhushala,

बैर बढाते मस्जिद – मंदिर मेल कराती मधुशाला |

Now I feel that it is not only Madhushala, but Sachin’s game also creates a great bonding among the citizens of this country. This man has eventually ended the era of breaking old records and has now started making new records with each passing match in both the major forms. Today in different cities of India, all the festivals appear to have advanced collectively and people have started celebrating Holi, Diwali and Eid today itself. We will always be proud of you Sachin and keep on drawing inspiration from you. You are the light Diwali, color of Holi..there is only one Shenshah in Cricket, who plays for India…… Kudos to you.
