The crowd goes on a toss when Sachin is on field. Because when Sachin plays well, India sleeps well. We all have numerous memories the Legend has gifted us, both on and off the field. Today, as he turns 45, we thought of taking a look what Khurkiness does the God of Indian cricket has and what steps he had taken to work for good.
Seeking Blessings from the Poor
Every year Sachin celebrates his daughter Sara’s birthday with the slum people. Rather than throwing a lavish party, Sachin chooses to spend time with the poor and the needy. His concern for the downtrodden has taken him to much greater heights.
Transforming the lives of people by transforming their living place
Tendulkar changed the whole face of Puttamraju Kandriga, a slum village that he turned into a modern marvel. Gifting the place concrete roads with tiled pavements along with an underground sewage network with a treatment plant, 24-hour water and power supply, a playground and various other benefits. When asked of any such undertaking in future, Sachin’s reply was, we plan to do much more.
Bat for Good
Achieving the century of centuries, the Master Blaster rather than opting to preserve the Bat he used during the match, knew the very fact that it would be prized by many. He auctioned the bat for good and donated the money in charity.
Vision for a Mission
Sachin’s participation in eye donation camps has worked out wonders and indeed has resulted in people turning up for this good cause. His involvement is of immense importance and campaigns work out well at the end.
Crusading to Fight Cancer
Sachin has taken out various campaigns, but the “Sachin’s crusade against cancer” stands out to be one of the best. The campaign was able to gather Rs 1.025 crore which has helped cancer patients in numerous ways.
Working for the Underprivileged Children
Sachin takes a special note of getting the education reach kids who can’t afford it.
Life saver when the state drowned
Back in 2013, when Uttarakhand was hit by floods, Sachin came forward to contribute Rs 51 lakh to help the people in need.
No means No
When offered good value to endorse alcohol and cigarette, Sachin refused to do so knowing the impression that it would create on common person. He rejected it for a good cause following his principles. We are aware of the side effects caused by these products and in turn Sachin did it, proving that Money can’t buy everything.
Spreading Awareness Whenever and Wherever Possible

India that is divided by caste, creed and religion needs something strong to bring everyone together. One prominent thing is cricket and the best tool in it, is none other than Sachin Tendulkar. The man who has contributed 25 precious years on field has captured a special place in everybody’s heart. Today, being out of field, his work for the good of the nation hasn’t gone down. Khurki salutes Sachin Tendulkar for being such a humble soul!
Warm wishes from his teammates:
