Sports desk. Arjun Tendulkar, son of the world’s great batsman Sachin Tendulkar, was bought by Mumbai Indians at his base price of Rs 20 lakhs in the recent IPL auction. Arjun was strongly criticized on social media by many people on this decision of Mumbai. Some people even talked about nepotism. He believes that he was selected because he is Sachin’s son. On this whole issue, veteran cricketer Sachin, who has scored the most runs in ODIs and Test cricket, believes that in sports, a player recognizes the performance on the field, not his background. One of the greatest cricketers of all time, Tendulkar retired in 2013 after earning several records. Tendulkar said that whenever we enter the dressing room it doesn’t really matter where you come from.
What part of the country have you come from and with whom do you belong? The situation is same for everyone here. In a virtual conversation with PTI after he became the brand ambassador of ‘Unacademy’, there is no recognition of anything other than your performance on the field in sports. Tendulkar said that the game unites people with new initiatives. He said that you are there as a person. Someone who wants to contribute to the team. This is what we want to do, to share our experiences. Being part of different schools and boards, I meet different types of instructors. I learn a lot myself and these are the experiences I want to share. He advised the students to make extra efforts to achieve their goals.
Tendulkar said that keep chasing your dreams, dreams come true. Many times we feel that nothing can happen now but it never happens, so make extra effort and you will achieve your goals. He remembered his late father Ramesh Tendulkar who was a professor. Tendulkar said that when we talk about access I remember my father who was a professor and traveled from one end of Mumbai to the other and he was constantly busy teaching his students.
