MASTER BLASTER………

AILAAAAAA…………….

Sachin Tendulkar was born April 24, 1973, in Bombay, India. Introduced to cricket at age 11, Tendulkar was just 16 when he became India’s youngest Test cricketer. In 2005, he became the first cricketer to score 35 centuries (100 runs in a single inning) in Test play. In 2008, he reached another major milestone by surpassing Brian Lara’s mark of 11,953 Test runs. Tendulkar took home the World Cup with his team in 2011, and wrapped up his record-breaking career in 2013.

BIRTH..

See the source image

Largely considered cricket’s greatest batsman, Sachin Tendulkar was born April 24, 1973, in Bombay, India, to a middle-class family, the youngest of four children. His father was a writer and a professor, while his mother worked for a life insurance company.

Named after his family’s favorite music director, Sachin Dev Burman, Tendulkar wasn’t a particularly gifted student, but he’d always shown himself to be a standout athlete. He was 11 years old when he was given his first cricket bat, and his talent in the sport was immediately apparent. At the age of 14, he scored 326 out of a world-record stand of 664 in a school match.

After high school, Tendulkar enrolled at Kirti College, where his father also taught. The fact that he decided to go to the school where his father worked came as no surprise. Tendulkar’s family is very close, and years after he’d achieved stardom and cricket fame, he continued to live next door to his parents.

Cricket JOURNEY

See the source image

Wasting little time living up to the lofty expectations, the 15-year-old Tendulkar scored a century in his domestic first-class debut for Bombay in December 1988, making him the youngest player to do so. Eleven months later, he made his international debut for India against Pakistan, where he famously declined medical assistance despite getting hit in the face by Waqar Younis.

In August 1990, the 17-year-old delivered a match-saving 119 not out against England to become the second-youngest player to record a century in Test play. Other celebrated early highlights included a pair of centuries in Australia in 1992, one of them coming at the blindingly fast WACA track in Perth. Underscoring his rapid rise to the top of his sport, Tendulkar in 1992 became the first international player to sign with England’s storied Yorkshire club.

In India, Tendulkar’s star shined even brighter. In a country reeling from troubled economic times, the young cricketer was seen as a symbol of hope by his countrymen that better times lay ahead. One national newsweekly went so far as to devote an entire issue to the young cricketer, dubbing him “The Last Hero” for his home country. His style of play—aggressive and inventive—resonated with the sport’s fans, as did Tendulkar’s unassuming off-the-field living. Even with his increasing wealth, Tendulkar showed humility and refused to flaunt his money.

After finishing the 1996 World Cup as the event’s leading scorer, Tendulkar was named captain of the Indian national team. However, his tenure marked one of the few blights on an otherwise illustrious career. He was relieved of the responsibility in January 1998, and briefly took over as captain again in 1999, but overall won just four of 25 Test matches in that position.

LIFE GOES ON…

His struggles with the captaincy notwithstanding, Tendulkar remained as brilliant as ever on the field. He delivered perhaps his finest season in 1998, devastating Australia with both his maiden first-class double century and his memorable “desert storm” performance in Sharjah. In 2001, Tendulkar became the first player to score 10,000 runs in One Day International (ODI) competition, and the following year he surpassed the great Don Bradman on the all-time list with his 30th Test century. He was again the leading scorer during World Cup play in 2003, earning Man of the Series honors despite India’s loss to Australia in the final.

MASTER BLASTER….

Tendulkar’s dominance of his sport continued even as he moved into his 30s. He delivered an unbeaten 241 against Australia in January 2004, and notched his record-breaking 35th century in Test competition in December 2005. In October 2008, he entered the record books again by blowing past Brian Lara’s mark of 11,953 Test runs. On the heels of becoming the first player to post a double century in ODI play, he was named the 2010 International Cricket Council Cricketer of the Year.

In April 2011, Tendulkar chalked up another milestone when he and his team propelled India to a World Cup victory over Sri Lanka, the first in his long career. During the tournament, he again demonstrated he was in a class by himself by becoming the first batsman to score 2,000 runs and six centuries in World Cup play.

His career nearing the finish line, Tendulkar was sworn in as a Rajya Sabha member at the Parliament House in New Delhi in June 2012. He retired from ODI competition in December, and the following October, the legendary batsman announced he was calling it quits in all formats. Tendulkar played his 200th and final Test match in November 2013, finishing with a jaw-dropping accumulation of statistics that included more than 34,000 runs and 100 centuries in international play.

See the source image

Shortly after his final match, Tendulkar became the youngest person and the first sportsman to be conferred the Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian honor.

Revered throughout his home country, Tendulkar devoted his time to charity work following his retirement. He briefly returned to competition in July 2014 as captain of the MCC team in the bicentenary celebration of Lord’s Cricket Ground in London, and later that year he released his autobiography, Playing It My Way. As part of an effort to introduce Americans to cricket, he was named captain of an all-star team for a series of exhibition matches in the U.S. in November 2015.

Married since 1995 to wife Anjali, a former pediatrician, Tendulkar has two children, Arjun and Sara. Arjun has followed in his famous dad’s footsteps by pursuing a career as a cricketer.

Red is a bold color. It represents lust, passion, materialism, base energies, bravery, power, drama, emotions, action, passion, aggressiveness, warmth, energy and vibrancy. Its nature is active and stimulating (that’s why you can see more of red in some restaurants as it stimulates hunger).

You can use red color at places that need warmth and energy. Try putting combination of red color shades (not too much) in the living room and see how lively that room becomes.

People suffering from depression or who’re nervous should avoid red color as it can be very stressful.

Avoid having too much blue in the house as it’ll lead to cough, cold and similar medical issues.

Green

Growth, nature, relaxation, healing, fertility, abundance, prosperity, positive energy, rebirth, re-creation etc. are the attributes represented by green color. Since it represents healing that’s why you’ll notice more of green color in hospitals.

It’s a color that can be used by people who feel depressed with life. Also, young aspirants who’re willing to put in determined efforts to achieve goals in their life should use more of orange color.

Brown

Brown represents satisfaction, contentment, comfort, stability and earth element. It’s a masculine color and can be used by anyone who wants to feel happy and satisfied in his life.

Purple

Purple is the color of luxury, riches, graciousness, self-respect and poise. It can be used by people who’re suffering from inferiority complex (especially males).

It represents spirituality, contentment, satisfaction, memory, concentration, peace of mind and decisive nature.

Indecisive people should use more of violet color; it’ll help them take better decisions and instill confidence. Also, people who feel they’re always discontented with life can use violet color.

YOGA for a better life

A Recent study found that yoga practice results in changes in gene expression that boost immunity at a cellular level. And it doesn’t take long: The researchers believe the changes occurred while participants were still on the mat, and they were significantly greater than a control group who went on a nature hike while listening to soothing music.

Yoga also helps to boost immunity by simply increasing overall health.

“As you breathe better, move better and circulate better, all the other organs function better.”

Kneel, then take your knees wide and big toes to touch.

Walk your hands forward until your forehand rests gently on the ground.

Practice deep, steady inhales and exhales for about 3-5 breaths as you let go of distraction and focus on your yoga practice.

Press into your hands to round your upper back, as if a string were pulling the middle of your back to the ceiling.

Drop your head and tuck your chin to chest, hugging your belly toward spine
