Sachin Tendulkar has been the most influential sportsperson in Indian sports by a long shot. His contribution to the game and the Indian society has been phenomenal and has inspired an entire generation of youngsters who follow SACHINISM.
As a fan brilliantly puts it "Yet it's not the enormity of his achievements on the cricket field, which sets him apart. It's the way in which he has achieved it. His records will not last for ever. Some young turk or turks will eventually get to them, no doubt. But will they be broken in the manner that they were set? That's a very tough possibility. The very fact that these records were attained while dealing with stardom, public scrutiny (the kind world leaders would rarely face), criticism and acclaim, at an age when most people just get started makes him incomparable to any living mortal. The legacy that he would eventually leave behind for his fans and followers, thus, is not the records, but something even greater. It's what defines Tendulkar to them, to us. It's not the destination, but the path. This is what makes him appear akin to God for his "followers". A genius, yes. But God? Still, it sounds as insane as it did before! But, now, it becomes important to see it from their point of view. God, not for any supposed super human capabilities or immortality. God, not because of his seemingly impossible achievements. But God because in all his time under the limelight he has refrained from displaying any sort of human weaknesses. The kind his two greatest contemporaries, Brian Lara and Shane Warne, often fell for. It wasn't their fault. It's the sort of temptation that fame and fortune brings with it, and ordinary men can do nothing but bend in front of it. And the fact the Tendulkar could makes him an example for what "we all want to become", to quote Aussie Andrew Symonds. And if that perfection is not divine, the I don't know what is!"
