“ First man on planet to score a double hundred in ODI's and it is the superman from India, Sachin Tendulkar. 200 from 147. Take a bow, master ! “ was Ravi Shastri's reaction for someone well-deserved doing the impossible, millions and zillions of eyes witnessed. Merely thinking big doesn't execute it. Merely executing it doesn't do good forever. Putting efforts to make it effortless is what SACH is about. It’s transcendental that way. Its really mesmerizing to see his composure amidst the cacophony of half baked, rarefied opinions credited to make their presence felt. There is clear demarcation between his conscious and subconscious. That's where conviction stems from. He humbly doesn't care to explain coz if it could be understood why would there be only 1 Sachin Tendulkar. He is an innovator go-getter meant to create milestones so that people can sit and opinionate on those what they are meant for while he is busy creating another one. Willing to play another 50 over knock after having played knocks like 175 before unbeaten 200 and 5 centuries in the past 7 tests recently shows he is not ready to slow down. WORLD HOLD ON as its still counting. Not letting success go to brains n failure to heart seems to be his mantra. Even after achieving the unachieved and seemingly impossible forever there were no aggressive gestures, no running around the park. He just took off his helmet, raising helmet and bat to acknowledge that it’s done. He doesn't need to do fancy stunts when the world celebrates for him.
A mere statistical autopsy doesn't confirm genius, though he clearly stands out there as well. Statistics can be quite deceptive. It is half measures leading to a confident illusion. A miscued shot edged passing by the keeper gives a boundary on board but it doesn't make a tail-ender stand in the league of a specialist batsmen. Likewise, categorically there are differences between 2 batsmen as well. One scores and the other is spectacular to watch. Scoring a ton is no big deal. Runs on board don’t define class. It can be defined only after contemplating every aspect of it. Every bit of his innings makes it special. He has piled up those records and it seems to be his prerogative to rightly possess all of the possible and impossible records.
He goes through the veins of his own game and every factor directly or indirectly affecting the way he does that. Sach has been following a rigorous exercise regime only for those parts of his body straining while playing typical ST shots like lofted cover drives, straight shots over the bowler's head he has not been playing for a longtime.
The overweening compassion he draws is not on dossiers. The exemplary is stimulation to subconscious which moves the nation. He is an ideal combo pack of every perfection seen in different people. Sachin Tendulkar is a spontaneous, simple performer and human being. Simplicity is esoteric. Ostentation can be taught as ' show off ' can be showed off. Complications can be explained, simplicity is inexplicable as it cannot be broken further. Spontaneity and simplicity cannot be taught. It is the last thing to achieve but the first prerequisite to be an achiever. Showed promise and potential at the age of 15, became a legend at the age of 25, thrashed all the records stepping into the league of his own at 30 he still stands tall to break his own records never to be broken again. The camera perfectly positioned eyeing at the sky while the little master walks back to the pavilion acknowledging the standing ovation shows the height of the GOD OF CRICKET. For those obsessed with numbers and for those needing spectacular batsmanship. There is someone for whom the world says “His name is Tendulkar and he is far from over." .......JAI HO !!! THE STORY CONTINUES.........
