Five points, someone – Sachin Tendulkar

Sachin-Tendulkar

Sachin Tendulkar, the legendary cricketer

Someone I have admired for many, many years, like most in my country. So much to learn, love, and respect him for. Here are the five things that stay with me:

  1. Defeats do not depress me, they motivate me.
  2. When you contribute towards the team, trying to achieve the team’s cause, that is when the records are created.
  3. I have never tried to compare myself to anyone else.
  4. At least with me, the match starts much, much earlier than the actual match.
  5. It is important to be a nice person. It is the easiest thing to do, but most difficult to maintain.
