Living in the shadow of limelight

Recommended Posts

Ever wondered how it feels to carry hopes of over a billion people on your shoulders, every time you walk into the field? Ever wondered how it feels to breathe free amidst the loud echoes enchanting your name? Ever wondered how it feels to stay away from the limelight in personal life, despite being in the spotlight for larger part of the professional life? Ever wondered how it feels to be simple, humble and down to earth, even though the world worships you as God of the game. Ever wondered how difficult it is to stay grounded when you are gifted with the most beautiful and surreal pair of wings. Ever wondered how difficult it is to be Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar, despite being peoples' "Tendlya".

It was very emotional moment for all of us. SRT was part of our childhood memories. Endless discussion during classes, morning assembly where everyone used to be impatient just to talk about the 100 which he his last evening. 

 

That speech moved many people. Some of my friends even cried. One of the biggest moment in history of cricket.

Sachin’s speech was class and I will leave it at that. It did not make me cry at all but it did play on my mind for the next few days regularly. Your friends shouldn’t cry. No one died. Its just a speach which was class.

I was in office at that time,kept aside the work and when he was making his speech tears were rolling down my cheek.

The other instance I cried is when we won the world cup in 2011. Moment of disbelief as a fan.

The sort of attachment an average Indian fan felt in his heart for Sachin will be unparalleled.
