What I Should Learn from GOD alias the Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar

The master is going to finally retire from all forms of cricket and in a few days he is going to play his last international cricket match. Like millions of other fans, I have always admired and prayed for him since I started watching cricket. Recently, I have lost interest in cricket, though whenever there is a match going on I will surely ask, "Tendulkar hai kya??"

Here are a few things I am going to follow, as I learn from him.

Do one thing well and everything else will follow.
Sachin played cricket and he did it with world class. Not the ferrari he owned, not his hairstyle, and not anything else about him makes him the man he is. Sure, we talk about how Kardashians dress and how Khans fight, but not for Sachin Tendulkar. 

Do that one thing, EVERYDAY.
Sachin plays cricket, practices cricket everyday. There was a coca-cola advertisement featuring the line, "Eat cricket, sleep cricket, drink only coc-cola." That was something that can signify master's way of life.

Be so humble, so humble that people feels bad to fight with you.
He was humble. Many a time, he was given out in a wrong decision, and he never protested. He never bragged about him. Even th way he speaks in the advertisements, we can feel his humility that is written all over him.

Don't ever reply to criticism by words, do the work better instead.
Ultracrepidarian critics (#$$%7)|$) has been asking him to retire, predicting his downfall, commenting wittily about the master. He never replied,  instead played the next game better. He surpassed his own records again and again.

We will probably never see him in a field again, donning that blue uniform, rubbing the ball on the pants or destroying the opposing bowler with his bat. But he will remain in our life as a hero, who never disappointed us. Sure, we wanted more.

On an emotional note,

You knew it was coming, it was inevitable, then why sachin do you still produce this numbness?
