Sachin Tendulkar's Record Breaking Debut On Twitter !!! 0 to 1,00,000 Followers in 33 Hours !!!

I think mostly everybody who is related to India, Indian culture, Indian people, Indian Sports, Cricket, etc… knows about Sachin Tendulkar, but still who are not so fortunate to know him till date, for them I have collected some information through some of the respected websites.
So please take a look at the mind blowing statistics of Sachin!

Sachin Tendulkar has been the most complete batsman of his time, and arguably the biggest cricket icon as well. His batting is based on the purest principles: perfect balance, economy of movement, precision in stroke-making, and that intangible quality given only to geniuses, anticipation.
Batting Averages
Mat Inns NO Runs HS Ave 100 50
Tests 166 271 29 13447 248* 55.56 47 54
ODIs 442 431 41 17598 200* 45.12 46 93

Fan following

Sudhir Kumar Chaudhary, a die hard fan of Tendulkar who earned the privilege to get tickets to all home games of India for lifetimeTendulkar's entry into world cricket was very much hyped up by former Indian stars and those who had seen him play. By scoring his first half-century in his second match and his first century aged 17, Tendulkar's consistent performances earned him a fan following across the globe, including amongst Australian crowds, where Tendulkar has consistently scored centuries. One of the most popular sayings by his fans is "Cricket is my religion and Sachin is my God".Cricinfo mentions in his profile that "... Tendulkar remains, by a distance, the most worshipped cricketer in the world." During the Australian tour of India in 1998 Matthew Hayden said "I have seen God. He bats at no. 4 in India in Tests."At home in Mumbai, Tendulkar's fan following is so great that he is unable to lead a normal life. Ian Chappell has said that he would be unable to cope with the lifestyle Tendulkar was forced to lead, having to "wear a wig and go out and watch a movie only at night". In an interview with Tim Sheridan, Tendulkar admitted that he sometimes went for quiet drives in the streets of Mumbai late at night when he would be able to enjoy some peace and silence.

The God Of Cricket himself came and twitted with his Followers through Twitter!!!

Let's Make This World A Wonderful Place To Live!

Hi Friends!
I am writing my first article for my Blog & this is something I have never done in my life. So I am getting very excited about how would it be? Do people really read my article? What would they think about it? Do they really understand it and like it too? What kind of reviews would I get to my first article?
All these questions are in my mind. But I am taking it positively as I have read so many books on positive thinking. I remember that one great person said,” Good beginning is half done!” Then I remember that another great person. He was one step ahead of the first great person. He said,” Beginning is half done!”
So here I am beginning & hopefully my half work (of reaching out to all of you) is done!
First of all, let me tell you very clearly that I know my limitations i.e. I am not a great author, article or blog writer, speaker or motivator. I am just a simple person who wants to write to do a small help to make this world a wonderful place to live. I am just one of you but that doesn’t mean that I am not great enough to do that. I firmly believe that we all have some wonderful qualities that make us unique and great in some aspects. So I am here to help you to motivate yourself to go one more step ahead of using your full potential & live the life you always wanted to live, achieve all your goals, fulfill all your dreams .
I really liked the line in the movie called ‘The Secret” i.e. we are unlimited! So let’s do some unbelievable things together for which we have to think unbelievable as they said ‘The Thoughts are Things!
I need your love and support to continue writing these articles to share my views and to motivate all my friends out there.
Please write your views & give me your valuable suggestions. You can suggest me the topics you wanted me to write for you and I promise that I will give my level best to make you happy and motivated to encourage me for writing more articles.
Thank you friends and once again let me tell you to write your views as they are very important for me!
