Sachin Tendulkar turns 47 today. The most adored Indian since the generation of our freedom fighters takes one more forward step in life today. His crores of admirers would already be aware that the legend has decided not to celebrate his birthday this time as a mark of respect for the frontline Covid-19 warriors.
However, that hasn’t stopped his followers and fellow players from celebrating the great legacy this Mumbaikar leaves behind. Truly someone who has captured the imagination of a billion people for the last 30 years, Tendulkar would reflect back at his achievements with great satisfaction.
One of his protégés and someone who resembles him not only in height but also in batting stance is Virender Sehwag. The Nawab of Najafgarh has made it a habit to wish people on their birthdays in his own style and this time it’s no different. Check out his tweet for the Master here;
True that the great man could stop time in India when batting. But the biggest inspiration @sachin_rt Paaji’s career is summed up is in these two pictures. Much needed to remember especially in these difficult times that after every adversity comes victory #HappyBirthdaySachin 🙏🏼 pic.twitter.com/UODlDjbCEL
