Perfect presentation

It’s easy to forget, among the slew of closely analysed stories on Sachin Tendulkar, that a young reader’s edition is as much about the presentation as it is about the person being presented through the story of a person.

There are nuggets of insightful Information too — Sachin Tendulkar’s various injuries, his trysts with different oppositions and hunger for success — are a testament to the biggest cricket icon who has shouldered hopes of a nation for over 2 decades.

The family man

The chapters where he talks about his children, wife and parents; the ‘message from Sachin' where he throws light on how he ‘landed into cricket from a tree.’ He writes, “This came at the end of a long string of mischievous escapades in which I played a leading or supporting role...” Instances like these humanise the batsman, who for the most part of his career, has been treated as the God of cricket. called God Of Cricket.

There are also some interesting and more importantly, easily comprehensible, takes on batting. On focussing on 1 end at a time, for example. Tendulkar says, “As a batsman, if I’m not consciously worrying about my footwork or my backlift or my wristwork, then I know that I’m in the right space. There's no time to think about both ends at the same time.”

Master storyteller

For a cricketer, who has made a living out of destroying bowling attacks , to be able to break down the skills to a bare minimum for the young followers, was a must and the book ticks that box.

Playing It My Way — the original autobiography — was criticised for being too reticent in its content; however, it’s this quality moulded with a refreshing depiction of Tendulkar’s life that makes Chase Your Dreams an enjoyable read.
