New Delhi: Not only being a record-breaking cricketer, Sachin Tendulkar's involvement in social causes for the education of slum children in Mumbai through the NGO Apnalaya is commendable, according to his mother-in-law.
Tendulkar's mother-in-law Annabel Mehta, who is actively associated with Apnalaya for the last 40 years, said the retiring batsman was deeply influenced by his father and he sponsors school children in his memory.
"Sachin is undoubtedly one of the greatest cricketers of all times, but what is more important to me is he is a fine human being. He was greatly influenced by his father and has grown up with strong family values. He is very much a family man," Annabel told PTI in an e-mail interview.
