Hullo Atuldom

This is the ideal time for this post as a cricket- crazy nation is enjoying the 10th season of Indian Premier League or IPL as it is called.

It is also the time to celebrate the 45th birthday of’ ‘the god of cricket’. But he himself is rather humble and human enough to say that ‘God of Cricket’ is someone else. He is also called the ‘Master Blaster’. He is a pint-sized tornado that burst on the Indian cricketing scene in 1989 following his awesome performances in the local tournaments of Ranji Trophy, Irani Trophy and Deodhar Trophy. His inclusion into the Mumbai Ranji team happened in 1987 but that year he narrowly missed playing alongside his idol -Sunil Gavaskar who had retired from all forms of cricket after the 1987 Cricket World Cup. But he was used mostly as a substitute fielder. At the age of 15 years and 232 days, in 1988, he was picked to play for Mumbai against Gujarat and scored a century on debut, in fact he has scored centuries on debut in the Irani and Deodhar Trophies too. His brilliance was the talk among cricket followers of Maidan-cricket, in Mumbai, in that period and he was coached by the able master Ramakant Achrekar. At age 14 he attended the MRF Pace Foundation to train as a fast bowler under Dennis Lillee who asked him to concentrate on his batting. He holds a record along with fellow school-mate and India Teammate Vinod Kambli for an unbroken partnership of 664 in a Harris Shield Inter-school tournament. Oh, he has numerous records to his name – youngest player to debut in International games for India being one of them. He was 16 years 205 days at the time of his test debut and 16 years 238 days when made his ODI debut.

If the readers have not yet guessed, I am talking of Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar, named after his father Ramesh Tendulkar’s favourite music composer- Sachin Dev Burman. (See the cricket to movie connection here, we simply cannot escape the two going parallel). So, like every normal youngster of the late 70s and early 80s cricket was Sachin’s addiction and he was lucky that his parents saw his talent early on and provided facilities to nurture his talent unlike other parents back then who used to feel – “playing all the time meant studies would suffer then what would one do for bread and butter?” It can be safely said that Sachin’s parents, more importantly his mother, must have been inspiration for parents of later cricketers specially from smaller towns and cities of India – hope that explains the emergence of players like the Pathan brothers, Dhoni, Sehwag etc.

These days there is a trend of biopics among filmmakers in Bollywood. I think ‘Bhaag Milka Bhaag’ (2013) was the inspiration for this new set of films. What followed was a movie on Azharuddin (2016), MS Dhoni (2016), wrestler Mary Kom (2014) etc. There was a movie even on the match fixing scandal that rocked cricketing circles and got bans of various durations for the players involved virtually finishing their playing careers.

But I don’t want to talk of sad occurrences like scandal or bans in this post. Let us focus on our birthday boy who played cricket for close to 25 years without a break? No there was a small break when he had an injured elbow and the world learnt what is a tennis-elbow 😉. There was a film in 2017 which was more of a docu-drama where Sachin himself faced the camera as the narrator of the movie; unlike the movie on Dhoni where Shushant Singh Rajput enacted the part and Emraan Hashmi played Azhar. “Sachin: A Billion Dreams” is directed by James Erskine and released world- wide in the month of May just as the IPL season was coming to a close. The movie shows Sachin as he is in real life. It has music by AR Rehman, and the songs are written by Irshad Kaamil. The song with this post is sung by Sukhvinder Singh and an unknown female voice towards the end, also in the English words. It begins on Sachin’s home ground – Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium where there are stands named after Vijay Merchant, Sunil Gavaskar, Sachin Tendulkar- all of whom have played a major role in making cricket a national craze. It shows the back of a Sachin fan who was a permanent at all the venues where India has played cricket since 2008. The song with the mantra – chant “Sachin Sachin” that used to be heard everywhere whenever Sachin stepped on the field; be it for batting, bowling or plain fielding. He was a darling of the public. Wishing him all the best in his retired life and lots of good times with his family and friends.

[Ed Note: As per information from other online sources, the rap portion of this song is written and sung by Kaly.]

raat chaahe
ho ghaneri
hai ujaala tere haathon mein
ho adhoora
khwaab to phir
neend kaise aaye raaton mein
abhi aadhi kheli tu ne baazi
abhi choten dil ki taazi taazi
abhi dil ko hai karna raazi
tere hauslon ne paa leni hain manzilen

sachin. . .  sachin

tu hawaaon
ki dishaayen
mod dena chaahe jo bhi ho
aur baaki
waqt pe hi
chhod dena tera saathi wo
le ke jaayega wo aage aage
nai subah tere liye jaage
naye kal se baandhe hai tune dhaage
tere hauslon ne paa leni hain manzilen

sachin. . .  sachin
sachin. . .  sachin
sachin. . .  sachin
sachin. . .  sachin

i was born with the game
you were born the same
i do this for my people
i don’t do this for the fame
i was born with the game
you were born the same
i do this for my people
i don’t do this for the fame
you keep chains
keep the change
just give me my reign
and leave me my lane
and just remember my name

sachin. . .  sachin
