On October 17, 2008 Sachin Tendulkar again surpassed a milestone set by his fellow great cricketers like Alan Border, Brian Lara, Sunil Gavaskar and others. First he break the highest test run record of Brian Lara by making 11953 runs and then completed 12000 runs in Test Cricket (A Great achievement not only for all Indians but for every cricketer and every sportsman in this world.). I hope that he will cross the 15000 mark and he may be the one of the great sportsmen/cricketer who had so many number of records with him.
He had played since the age of 16 and playing till date without untiring efforts dedication and his love for cricket. Here I would like to mention the lines read in book YOU CAN WIN by SHIV KHERA that
"The average person puts only 25% of his energy and ability into his work. The world takes off its hat to those who put in more than 50% of their capacity, and stands on its head for those few and far between souls who devote 100%."
And there is no doubt that Sachin had devoted his 100% energy to cricket.
BEST OF LUCK TO THE GREAT LITTLE MASTER AND A SON OF INDIAN SOIL.
