Born in Dadar in Mumbai, Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar is often known as Tendiya, Little Master, and Master Blaster. He belonged to an average family as his father was a novelist and mother worked in the insurance industry. He had three elder siblings named Nitin, Ajit, and Savita. During childhood, Tendulkar was not a peace-loving kid. He used to pick up unnecessary fights with the new children in the school. He had a sportsman attitude since school days. He had an interest in tennis and John McEnroe was his idol.

His brother Ajit gave cricket in his hands in the year 1984. He handled him to a famous cricket coach Ramakant Achrekar, who taught Sachin and made him what he is today. Sachin credits Ajit for playing a prominent role in his life. Achrekar always saw a legend in Sachin and trained him that way. He would practice for hours without eating and sleeping. Sometimes no bowler could dismiss Sachin and Achrekar's eyes sparkled with pride. Sachin was a child prodigy. He played for the school cricket team as well as for theclub cricket. At a small age of fourteen, he tried to get training from the MRF Pace Foundation as a fast bowler.

But the Australian bowler Denis Lillee suggested that Sachin should concentrate on batting instead of bowling. The legend Sunil Gavaskar gave Sachin a pair of his pads and asked him not to get discouraged as he could not win the Best Junior Cricket Award. It was a source of encouragement for him. Later, he surpassed Gavaskar's record of thirty-four test centuries. From then, Sachin did not stop. In the year 1988, he scored a century in each of the innings which he played. He served as a ball boy in the World Cup of 1987.

Sachin and Vinod Kambli shared a good synchronization. The bowlers used to break down to tears but weren't able to destroy their partnership. In 1987, he got selected to play for Ranji Trophy and represent Bombay. No one knew that the small, fragile Tendulkar would turn out to be the God of Cricket. In the year 1994, he achieved the Arjuna Award for his marvelous performance, Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award, Padam Shri, and Padma Vibhushan award.

In 2012, he was nominated as the member of the Rajya Sabha because of his excellent contribution towards sports. He was the first person without an aviation background and the first sportsman to be awarded by Indian Air Force, the honorary rank of group captain. His wife and kids supported him in this journey thoroughly.
