If there is one contemporary Indian who is admired, adored and appreciated by fellow Indians, it is Sachin Tendulkar. He combines his ability with humility which is why he has a fan following across not only India but the whole world.

Napoleon Bonaparte said: “Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever.” Sachin Tendulkar has proved him wrong by establishing his glory forever. His performances on the cricket field will be remembered at all times.

Sachin is certainly the best cricketer India has produced. It would not be an exaggeration to claim that he is the best player the world has produced.

More than cricket, what he has taught Indians is humility. Neither wealth nor fame that he achieved at a very young age affected him.
