New Delhi: Every time he goes out to bat and dominates the opposition like Hercules, a thought crosses my mind - when will he stop? And then, can't he play forever? I know I share this with each and every Sachin Tendulkar fan.
He attained the stature of God even before he could qualify to fight elections in the Indian democracy, and now, 21 years since this prodigy broke into the scene, we have run out of adjectives for him.
What else could we call him? How else do we praise him? Brilliant? Extraordinary? Out of this World? All these terms and their synonyms have been used beyond their expiry dates, but this Man, relentlessly and consistently, continues to amaze us, entertain us and instills the belief that till he's there in the team we are very much in the race.
