|Sachin - the prophet!|

There's a lot to learn from Sachin. He follows Spirituality so closely. It reflects in his answers. He's so successful because he is one of the few cricketers who do not play for records or money. He plays for his nation for the love of the game.
|He looks upwards to thank God - a true devout. I wonder how many cricketers do this?|
This was the master's response after the century - "It's been a tough phase for me. I started off the season batting reasonably well, i was luckless. I was not thinking about the milestone, the media started all this, where ever I went, the restaurant, room service, everyone was talking about the 100th hundred. Nobody talked about my 99 hundreds. It was slightly different, the ball was not coming onto the bat. It hasn't sunk in but I've definitely lost about 50 kilos. Doesn't matter how many hundreds you've scored, you still have to put your head down and score for the team. Dreams do come true. I had to wait for one for 22 years (the World Cup)."

Sachin's actions speaks louder than his words - but still his words echo in my year every single day - "Success is a journey... during that journey, people throw stones at you and.. you convert them into milestones."
And what a milestone it has been!
