Cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar firmly believes that sport only recognizes the performance of the field and not the background of the athlete.
One of the great greats of the game, Tendulkar retired in 2013 after breaking many records during a glorious career.
“Every time we entered the locker room, it really didn’t matter where you came from, which part of the country and where you belonged. It was an equal level for everyone.
“Sport recognizes nothing but your performance on the field,” Tendulkar said.
He talks about a sport that unites people through the new initiative.
“You are there as a person who wants to contribute to the team,” added the 47-year-old legendary batsman, who will connect with students and share his experience.
“This is what we want to do, try and share my experience. (I was) as part of different schools together and met different coaches. I myself learned a lot and these are the experiences I want to share.
“We will be holding classes for free, so I think we wanted this platform to be accessible to everyone and everyone,” added the batsman, who has many records in his name.
He also advised students to continue to pursue their goals and make extra efforts.
“Keep chasing your dreams, dreams come true, how many times we push ourselves and feel it’s a dead end, but it’s never a dead end, so take that extra step and you’ll achieve your goal,” he said.
