Sachin Tendulkar rang in his 39th birthday at Mohali on April 24 by releasing the book Sachin: Tribute to a Legend – a collector’s edition compiled by The Hindu.

 

The book is a celebration of the man who went from prodigy to phenomenon, after debuting as an international superstar when he was just 16. The book catalogues Sachin’s incredible journey fromManchesterto Mirpur. It strives to convey the sparkle of the moment as it was recorded, so older readers can experience the delight of nostalgia, and younger ones, the excitement of discovery.

 

The book is more than just a narrative of the man who achieved a hundred hundreds – it is also a window into the mind of one of cricket’s greatest personalities. It includes freewheeling interviews, and interactions that happened after major milestones such as the ones after 100 tests and after 20 years of international cricket. Sachin is engaging, honest and interesting in each of these interviews. The book also has a statistics section and an essay on Tendulkar, the brand.

 

Arun Anant, CEO of The Hindu Group of Publications said: “This book is our tribute to his unparalleled contribution to the game”. As a part of the team working on this project Suresh Srinivasan, VP-Advt stated: “Sachin is a source of inspiration to millions of people across the globe and is India’s pride. We trust Sachin’s fans and readers at large will find it as exciting and interesting as we did when we were putting it together.”

 

Speaking at the release function, Sachin Tendulkar expressed his gratitude to The Hindu: “Readingvarious articles and opinions (in The Hindu) has played an important role in my career. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for putting this book together in a matter of a few weeks. It’s a mammoth effort and thank you very much.”
