The Cricket Boss Speaks

Times of India reports that all time great Mr. Sachin Tendulkar says

"Mumbai belongs to all Indians. I am a Maharashtrian and am extremely proud of that. But I am an Indian first,"

The boss is speaking 'where his mouth is'. With hundreds of millions of worth endorsement contracts at stake at national level showered by India's businesses; it makes sense for Mr. Tendulkar to say this. It is plain and simple business.

But Mr. Tendulkar has one more thing, as sterling as his batting record and cricketing prowess - his credibility. So when he says what he said above, we believe it, we salute him and then we make an attempt to incorporate that in our life.

There comes an occasion in nation's life when these celebrated sports persons can play the role beyond stadiums. Mr. Tendulkar has done that today with flying colors, as strong as his emblematic power shots.

Touche!

Mr. Tendulkar, you are the boss.
