In India it’s oft-repeated that if cricket is religion then Sachin is god. The charisma of the man is such that he has fans across age groups, gender, income groups and borders. The man responsible for inspiring millions to pick up the bat and break windows celebrates his 47th birthday today.
What sets him apart from other champions of sport is the sheer humility and graciousness he carries himself with even after having a ‘more than a Maradona’ fanaticism surrounding him. If one just looks at the sheer number of people who wanted the master to do well it boggles the mind how the Mumbaikar remained so calm in the middle.
As expected, on his big day cricketers from across the world have wished the master on the microblogging site Twitter. Be it Ashwin reminiscing the good old Chepauk days or coach Shastri wishing the ‘Bossman’. Check out some of the tweets from the cricketing fraternity here;

Many more happy returns of the day @sachin_rt paijee. The memories of your 100s at Chepauk are still so fresh in my memory and feels like it happened yesterday. May you have great day and beyond. #SachinSachin
