To Sachin Tendulkar, my hero

My dear Sachin Tendulkar,

I bid you farewell today with a lot of emotion. I am every Indian cricket fan who watched you perform for 24 years (gloriously on days, doggedly when chips were down). I am every person who respects great accomplishments that come with honest effort, perseverance and cultured skill. I am every fan who has admired the grace and the gravity of your on the ground, and off-the-ground words and deeds. You are a worthy hero in your own right, and you have been an inspiration to all of us in more ways and on more days than can be enumerated. I so wish we had more like you in every field. There is more to write and say but we will leave that for another day, as great emotions leave little room for words.

Thank you for every burst of hope and inspiration to provided to me and the nation, and for a career full of accomplishment.

Sachin one of the most electrifying cricketer in the history of world cricket rightly deserves the highest award our nation can render him with. A true legend who served Indian cricket for the past 24 years and have created a sensation like none other in the history of world cricket. I wish him all the best and pray that he enjoys the remaining part of his life as he enjoyed during his entire cricket career. May God bless you great one.
