Sachin's retirement
by Bigthree on Nov 15, 2013 06:44 PM  | Hide replies

I am a cricket fan. I am also a very ardent fan of Sachin but I equally admire the other greats like Dravid, Laxman, Ganguly, Kumble, Kapildev etc., I enjoy a good innings whether it was played by Sachin, Dravid, Dhoni, Rohit, Ganguly or whoever. Having said that, I really feel this is a big moment because Sachin has created such a big impact on Indian cricket fans and I fully respect that and I am not concerned about the hype. Though it may irritate a few people, its an expression of feelings from certain sections of cricket lovers and we should respect that. Its not an impression that would harm anybody.

However, what is more disturbing is the comments of Sachin vs Dravid, Sachin vs Laxman, Sachin vs Lara vs Ponting etc., For those who spend time on making those comments, I wanted to share some of my thoughts. The people you compare were both successful. They inspire so many people. If you are making this up because you do not want to follow a person as your role model, you have the right to choose. But, this particular mindset of playing down a person's achievement is not good for your own personal development. Very likely(I emphasize likely because I hate prejudice), you would not align with some set of achievers in your workplace, family or friends circle. Lets learn to appreciate all Indian achievers. We have something to learn from all greats. They all make India proud.

Not sure why there is so much of hype around Sachin's retirement, in cricketing circles and media. Probably they are afraid that Sachin might decide to return if he isn't given a grand farewell :-)

Those who will miss Sachin should watch video recording of old matches and be satisfied.He cannot be younger and better any way now.If still you are sad,please hold on.Tendulkar will be back again,with a new name "Arjun" after 2 years.Till then you can watch Tendulkar_jee in toothpaste_and_shampoo advertisements.I bet,you will not miss seing him.

There will be no more comments that India lost because of selfish Sachin.Infact,India is winning more since Sachin started featuring less in the team.That also gave chance to establish Virat Kohli in the middle order.So far ODI's concerned ,there are many as Rohit,Shikhar,Pujara,S_A_Roy,etc to fit in to the opening slot.

Paid_media will still keep_rooting for him as sports_minister,India_veteran_team master_blaster,etc,etc as he still has million dollar contracts with companies as brand_ambassador,just same way as Aishwarya_Rai after pregnancy.So,that investment needs to be returned.

Salute the legend.Please stay away from corrupt congress.
