Dedicated to the Master Blaster ”Group Captain” Padmashri Sachin Tendulkar on his 5th double ton, 48th ton and first against Sri Lanka in 11 years

From the Time Magazine-

” When Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar travelled to Pakistan to face one of the finest bowling attacks ever assembled in cricket, Michael Schumacher was yet to race an F1 car, Lance Armstrong had never been to the Tour de France, Diego Maradona was still the captain of a world champion Argentine soccer team, Pete Sampras had never won a grand slam.

When Sachin Tendulkar embarked on a glorious career taming Imran Khan and company, Roger Federer was a name unheard of; Lionel Messi was in his nappies, Usain Bolt was an unknown kid in the Jamaican backwaters. The Berlin Wall was still intact, USSR was one big, big country, Dr. Manmohan Singh was yet to ”open” the Nehruvian economy.

It seems while Time was having his toll on every individual on the face of this planet, he excused one man.

Time stands frozen in front of Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar. We have had champions, we have had legends, BUT WE HAVE NEVER HAD ANOTHER SACHIN TENDULKAR AND WE NEVER WILL.”

Sachin you are the best and we all love you!!!!
