The Man,The Legend,The Role Model

The Man,The Legend,The Role Model

The Man who belongs to a sport the name of which became synonymous to his name. The man who redefined that game with the way he played converting all previous records to his name and creating other milestones which were hard to reach by the next generation. The man which infused that sport in the veins of that country which still struggles to get timely food, shelter and clothes but watches and plays that game to be like him. The sport I am talking about is cricket which we all Indians eats,drinks and breathes and the man is Bharat Ratna Sachin Tendulkar.

India is known by his name in the world. The fame he brought to the country with his phenomenal cricket is an inspiration to the whole generation of young cricketers. Many cricketer of current Indian team like Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Yuvraj Singh, Virender Sehwag, etc gave him the credit to attract them towards the game and why only Indian cricketers foreign cricketers and the whole generation of of his era was glued to cricket due to him.

But what makes him the legend and the role model is not his cricketing records because someone would break them someday but his passion,sportsmanship and behavior on and off the field .His never say die approach in life. He never misbehaved with any senior or junior player he played with,encouraged younger generation keeping his own interests aside,supported his captain and coach in every situation, remain spotless at a time when match fixing hold every cricketer's collar, remain a true champion of the game even off the field with the way he conducted himself in public. We see today's cricketer indulging in brawls and fight with each other or displaying arrogant behavior publicly ill-treating fans and media for their little feats while he remained down to earth even after achieving so much.

There was a time when he was above the game but he never took appreciations to his head and always remained humble to everyone. His clean image, his soft spoken attitude, his sportsmanship, his tendency to take criticism positively and his principles(refused to endorsed a liquor brand) sets and examples for others to follow. Now he is separated from all forms of cricket after his retirement but the cricket is not separated from him. Commentators,viewers,spectators,opposition,captain still search for him in others that's what a role model is all about always in your mind to encourage and inspire you. 

I am writing about #MyRoleModel as a part of the activity by Gillette India in association with


  1. Master Blaster is a great role model, Cifar. He'll continue to inspire all.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

Hindi Hain Hum Watan Hai Hindustan Hamara?

(Inter - Religion marriage still taboo among Indians ? What is your take on it .)

We as Indians are still confused for our cultural identity i.e who we are as residents of this country. Hindu,Hindustani,Indian,Bharatiya,Hindi or something else. When there is so much struggle in conveying our identity then how people who consider even inter-caste marriages as taboo would accept Inter - Religion marriages. We are all united under our constitution which make all of us equal and grants freedom to follow any religion. An adult individual thus holds the freedom to choose his or her partner regardless to any religion.The constitution also declares India as Bharat or India and not as Hindustan which denotes its secular identity not related to a particular religion. How a Chris…

An Ode To Teachers

An Ode To Teachers.

Teachers play an important role in shaping our life. If you are among privileged who took formal education or even when you are among the non-educated there are people in your life who teach you something or the other in course of journey of life. Apart from life I have learnt many things from many teachers I encountered in life whether it’s about subject like Science, History, Literature, Geography or things helpful in daily life which make us more experience. 
Naming any one teacher will devalue the contribution of others. So I restrict myself from naming anybody and before going further with the topic I like to remember my English teacher whose death news I have heard recently. He taught me English from Seventh to Tenth class. He depends on his life experiences while teaching than on bookish knowledge. We used to enjoy his classes. I was a bright student and teacher’s favorite but on two occasions in my school life I got slapped. Once in first class when as a m…
