You can take life lessons from this autobiography of Sachin Tendulkar. Speaking of life lessons – one incidence from his early days of Cricket is when as a teenager his nose was hit by the ball bowled by Waqar Younis in a test match against Pakistan. The year was 1989. Sachin’s nose started bleeding and Navjot Singh Siddhu who was at the non-striker’s end came up to take a look at his condition. Since, his nose was bleeding and his age was small, Sachin Tendulkar was suggested to go back to the pavilion as ‘retired hurt’ and take rest. But then suddenly, out of all the chaos going around, a voice was heard, “Mai khelega” (I will play). These 2 words by Sachin were enough to shatter the suggestions of him going back to the pavilion. After that, not only Sachin continued to bat but he also scored a half-century. Sachin’s talent is unparalleled but to be a champion you need to have a bigger attitude than talent. This anecdote reflects why he is the ultimate master blaster and highest run scorer in Cricket on planet earth. Playing it my way is available on at a discount of 72%.
