Sachin Tendulkar is considered to be nothing short of a demi-god in a cricket-crazy nation like India. Sachin has played the game at the pinnacle for over two decades. He has given immense satisfaction and pleasure to a country of more than a billion. Ironically, ‘Sachin- A billion dreams’ releases this week and it has to be said that is letter is well-timed. Sachin has scored more than 100 centuries and has amassed more than 50K runs in a span of 24 years, these are surreal records. Sachin Tendulkar is also the first batsman to score a double ton in One Day International. Sachin Tendulkar is the mentor of Mumbai Indians and is currently a busy man after MI managed to lift the trophy for the third time, hence it is assumed that with all the interviews and press conferences lined-up, Sachin is a busy person.
But Sachin manged to cull time for his ultimate fan, whose letter was heart-wrenching. Some words were not clearly written and could very easily be made out that it is a kid who has written it. But Sachin humble as ever made time to read the letter and actually respond to it. Is this called ‘greatness’? May be yes. The name of the fan is Avineeshwar. We do not have the details of what he does or where is he from, but he truly is a fan of the little master. If one tries to read the letter, you will see the format that is used is very ‘schoolish’, something they teach in school.
