Internet Desk: On the auspicious day of Teacher’s Day legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar shared a special message on his twitter handle that how he learnt his biggest lesson of his life from his sir, Shree Ramakant Achrekar. The master blaster recalled an incident of his childhood days which is still there in his memory after almost three decades.

“Back in my school days, I used to play only for the junior team and our senior team was playing the Harris Shield finals at the Wankhede Stadium,” said Tendulkar in a video posted on Twitter as a tribute to Ramakant Achrekar on Teachers’ Day. “And our coach Ramakant Achrekar sir had organised a practice match for me. He had told me to go there after school and bat at number four. He said he had spoken to the captain and you would not need to field. That used to be my training. That was important because you needed to figure out your game there and figure out how to score runs in the middle.”

“But I left all of that and sat at the Wankhede watching the Harris Shield final, cheering the senior team, clapping. After the match, I saw Achrekar sir and I thought it would be good to wish him. He asked me how many runs I got in the match and I told him I never went to play it because I wanted to cheer the senior team and clap for them.”

“Then he scolded me a lot in front of everybody and said I did not need to clap for others. He said I should take care of my own game and do something so that one day, the world can clap for you.”

“That was the biggest lesson of my life. After that day, I never missed another match,” he added.

Coincidentally on that same venue, Sachin fulfilled his dream of winning the World Cup in 2011 when Mahendra Singh Dhoni led Indian cricket team beat Sri Lanka to win the World Cup.
