The boy wizard

No, not Harry Potter.

I'm talking about our own little wizard. Check out this amazing 1989 video.

If you notice, except for the diction which has gotten more refined over the years, nothing else has changed. Two decades. Countless world records. But the man continues to carry himself in the same humble manner.

Yes, Amazing! is the only word

Completely agree with you. He is superhuman. Not many have experienced what it means to carry the expectations of an entire country of one billion plus day in and day out. And to do it with the same innocent smile for twenty long years is just unbelievable. More than the cricketing records, its the way the man carries himself should be an example to everyone on how to handle success.

Well, I am yet to learn how to handle success cos I am about to scream at the top of my lungs....... GOLD !!!!! :)

Sachin at 15 had a sense of cricket that not many veterans of the game have. I bet what he says here is much more refined than what Viru can come up with even now after his bizzare freak shows(no disrespect).
i thank my stars that I was born when Sachin was the God of all things (atleast in my life).

the way he spoke the work 'bat' with an elongated and sharp 'tt' - he definitely scored a four.
