Thank You for the Memories Sachin

Hi Sachin,

Today when you walked off the field for the last time, taking a bow all round the stadium did you have tears in your eyes?  I sure had in mine.  Being a person of the same age I have followed your career since childhood.  In the early childhood years it was the pride of somebody my age playing with the big guys 🙂 cocking a snoot at the elders in some sense.  In the later teens and early twenties your success was about looking up to you; about what a person of my age could achieve with hard work.  In mid life it is about  awe, about saluting the colossal achievements, about recognizing that such success is not for everybody but for a chosen few one.  Today as you retire it is looking up to one who has fulfilled his calling, made his money, secured his future and SUCCEEDED – something very few of us have achieved at your age.

You are an extremely talented, successful and talented cricketer.  You have given us a lot of pleasure, memories to cherish, bragging rights “I watched it”, “I am his contemporary”.  But the most important aspect about you that stands out is your humility, how your presence commands respect, how the enormous success sits lightly on your shoulders.  If there is anything I would like to attempt is to copy being humble – as you are.

Thanks Sachin, for everything.  All good things, including a Sachin Tendulkar career, has to come to an end.  But then the memories will live for ever.

– A ardent fan.
