This book is the journey of a man who dreamed big, stretched his arms towards the sky and reached the summit. A record 83 individuals, all path-breakers in their own right, speak out on what Sachin means to them. If Asha Bhosle calls him ‘God’s apna aadmi’, and Kapil Dev wants him ‘to stand as tall as Mahatma Gandhi’, Viv Richards gives him ‘10 upon 10’.
Taking the reader through Sachin’s journey of life, the author steps boldly on what has been ‘forbidden’
Bhattacharya shares with us the cricketer’s values, his appealing humility, non-star like image, his persona as a son, husband and a father. Introduced through eye-catching and popular phraseology, the chapters in the book capture the soul of the man fondly referred to as the ‘God of Cricket’!
Idolized by the young, revered by his colleagues, blessed by the old guard – Sachin Tendulkar who created history at the age of 16, today continues to rewrite it, as the unified voice of the country salutes him.
The book SIZZLES with NEW FEATURES:

‘Most people who admire Sachin only see the successful part of him … I wish they had an opportunity to see the other side too. They would see with how much care and intensity he prepares himself each day even after 22 years. No wonder we call him the God of Cricket. I often think that if cricket is Ram, then Sachin is Hanuman, Ram’s biggest disciple. I will say he is as close to the idea of a perfect man that I have ever seen …’
