Sachin ! what we will do?

It was obvious that one day would come and the man would go away from the crease. It is obvious that nobody can keep the momentum of performance to a stretched period   and it is obvious that a man like Tendulkar could only bend the time and make it walk behind him or at least along with him.  

It would be  just a shocking news for all cricket lovers  on the globe  when Sachin churned out the decision of quitting  but for the 90’s Indian generation  it is not just a shocking news , it is not even a news but a very personal loss.  We – the 90’s generation or the late 80’s generation do not know cricket with out that man. We never thought of a blue bleeding team without a mentor god.  We are the people who write “Sachin” at the first column even if we are asked to write the Indian players’ name in alphabetic order.  I do remember the days when we groped the bundle of cricket bats from the shop to get the MRF sticker one. It was sad to go to school or college when the game is there. We couldn't   have the courage to write “to see Tendulkar’s innings” against the reason in the leave letter book otherwise we would have bunked the classes like anything. Yes we have done it often, but not as the number of centuries Tendulkar has in his kitty.

 Pressing the power button on the TV or switching the channel was such a ‘mandatory’ task for all cricket viewers (at least for me) if Sachin got out. A great man who sailed more than 2 decades collecting memories and giving memories never give up the trust, love , passion and respect for the game. The big shark was always away from the luring parties or trapping money games inside.  No wordy fights, no black marks, nothing other than Cricket.  

Sachin! , You might have played bad, we might have discussed about your retirement but we never wanted you to throw down the throne abruptly. This was sudden and we are sorry as we couldn't bid a bye in a most dignified manner. You took a time when the whole India is disturbed and the youth is busy with another great move.

 The man was there with his bat from the days I could remember, we could remember and he has been standing beside us with the same bat for such a long period and now the tough time has knocked us showing an ODI scorecard without Sachin.  Will miss you man, and tell us what we do with a bat, a ball, 6 stumps and 2 bails without you?


  1. But the time he chose for getting out of cricket was not good. It was a time of Media and people were protesting the brutal gang rape in New Delhi.

    Sachin missed the due attention on account of it.

    However the post is timely
