Ramesh Tendulkar About this sound pronunciation born 24 April 1973 is an Indian cricketer widely regarded as one of the greatest batsmen in the history of cricket. He is the leading run-scorer and century maker in Test and one-day international cricket.He is the only male player to score a double century in the history of ODI cricket.In 2002, just 12 years into his career, Wisden ranked him the second greatest Test batsman of all time, behind Donald Bradman, and the second greatest one-day-international (ODI) batsman of all time, behind Viv Richards.In September 2007, the Australian leg spinner Shane Warne rated Tendulkar as the greatest player he has played with or against
Tendulkar was born in Bombay (now Mumbai). His mother Rajni worked in the insuranceindustry,and his father Ramesh Tendulkar, a Marathi novelist, named Tendulkar after his favourite music director, Sachin Dev Burman. Tendulkar's elder brother Ajit encouraged him toplay cricket. Tendulkar has two other siblings: a brother Nitin, and sister Savita.
Sachins first school Is IES new English School [bandra East ]Mumbai after 6thstandard Tendulkar attended Sharadashram Vidyamandir (High School),where he began his cricketing career under the guidance of his coach and mentor, Ramakant Achrekar. During his schooldays he attended the MRF Pace Foundation to train as a fast bowler, but Australian fast bowler Dennis Lillee, who took a world record 355 Test wickets, was unimpressed, suggesting that Tendulkar focus on his batting instead.
When he was young, Tendulkar would practice for hours on end in the nets. If he became exhausted, Achrekar would put a one-Rupee-coin on the top of the stumps, and the bowler who dismissed Tendulkar would get the coin. If Tendulkar passed the whole session without getting dismissed, the coach would give him the coin. Tendulkar now considers the 13 coins he won then as some of his most prized possessions.
While at Ajit Tendulkar, elder brother of Sachin
Although Ajit could not become a successful cricketer, he surely played his part in creating the greatest batsman of our generation.
school, he developed a reputation as a child prodigy. He had become a common conversation point in Mumbai circles, where there were suggestions already that he would become one of the greats. His season in 1988 was extraordinary, with Tendulkar scoring a century in every innings he played. He was involved in an unbroken 664-run partnership in a Lord Harris Shield inter-school game in 1988 with friend and team mate Vinod Kambli, who would also go on to represent India. The destructive pair reduced one bowler to tears and made the rest of the opposition unwilling to continue the game. Tendulkar scored 326* in this innings and scored over a thousand runs in the tournament. This was a record partnership in any form of cricket until 2006, when it was broken by two under-13 batsmen in a match held at Hyderabad in India.
At 14, Tendulkar was a ball boy for the India versus Zimbabwe game at the Wankhede Stadium during the 1987 World Cup. When he was 14, Indian batting legend Sunil Gavaskar gave him a pair of his own ultra light pads. "It was the greatest source of encouragement for me," he said nearly 20 years later after surpassing Gavaskar's world record of 34 Test centuries. On 24 May 1995, Sachin Tendulkar married Anjali, a paediatrician and daughter of Gujarati industrialist Anand Mehta and British social worker Annabel Mehta. They have two children, Sara (born 12 October 1997), and Arjun (born 24 September 1999). Anjali is six years elder to him.

SAchin with his Kids and his wife and MOM
Mumbai : Cricketer Sachin Tendulkar arrived here on Wednesday night to a hero's welcome from family and friends.
They greeted the batting maestro with a surprise reception at his residence in suburban Bandra.
An overwhelmed Sachin told waiting reporters that ''this is a special occasion, as my mother is there to bless me and other family members are also present.'' Sachin said he had seen banners and hoardings greeting him on his world record of Test centuries.
During the second cricket Test against Sri Lanka in New Delhi, which concluded on Wednesday, Sachin surpassed the 34 centuries record of Sunil Gavaskar. Sachin later helped his children Arjun and Sara cut a special cake to celebrate his 35th ton. His wife, Anjali, was also present. Outside the building, Sachin's fans burst firecrackers to celebrate their idol's new world record. ' PTI
In a two-decade long career, the only bouncer Sachin Tendulkar found tough to negotiate came from his own son, who would refuse to speak to him on phone during tours out of sheer annoyance over his absence from home.
Tendulkar, who will complete two decades in international cricket in November, disclosed that his son did not like him leaving home frequently and wouldn't come on phone until six years of age.
"It was tough initially because my son did not like it when I left home. For the first five-six years of his life, he did not speak to me on phone. That was difficult for me," Tendulkar said.
"Now he (Arjun) knows what I do and he appreciates that; so that's nice. I am a family man and they now know that I play cricket for India," he added.
Asked whether he wanted his son to follow in his footsteps and become a cricketer, Tendulkar said he would not force Arjun to play the game.
Sara Tendulkar and Arjun Tendulkar, the rising star kids of Indian batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar have showcased their affection and immense pride in their father's achievements in the international cricketing world. As a matter of fact, it has been witnessed at numerous times in public how much the kids dote on their father Sachin.
Whether it is the various cricket matches being attended by son Arjun Tendulkar [ who recently made his cricketing debut in January 2010] or it is the social welfare events organized by daughter Sara Tendulkar [ she decided to spend her birthday with slum kids]. There are various such instances where one can see the kids alighted with their father's presence.
The Tendulkars have never shied away from showcasing their bond of togetherness and mutual admiration for each other in the public eye. When Sachin completed his 20 years in international cricket then his kids sent him gifts for celebrating the occasion. His daughter Sara gifted him with a painting while his Arjun sent him personally made greeting cards. This was all sent through their mother and Sachin's wife Anjali Tendulkar who went to pay her husband a visit in Ahmedabad.
When Sara took part in the 7th Standard Chartered Marathon in Mumbai last year, Sachin gave her a sound advice to focus and run. Sara who became the highest Dream Maker by raising a larger amount of funds for her grandmother's NGO was elated to hear her father's praise on this occasion.
Everyone who knows the Tendulkars was taken in by surprise by last year when the oldest of the junior Tendulkar kids became the first news maker of the year 2010. Yes, it was Sara Tendulkar who came into limelight and not her father Sachin when the headstrong girl participated in the 7th Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon on January 12 2010 under Dream Run Category.
Apparently Sara Tendulkar the beloved daughter of legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar took part in the marathon for a noble cause. She was there to raise funds for her grandmother and Sachin Tendulkar's mother in law Annabel Mehta's NGO called Apnalaya.
According to her mother Anjali and grandmother Annabel, Sara was really moved by the emotional environment there at the marathon. Also, she was really taken in by surprise by all the mayhem and fervor present amongst the participants at the event. She was enthusiastic throughout the marathon and even clicked pictures with the fellow participants.
Not surprisingly she managed to raise rupees 5.88 lakhs for Apnalaya a figure which managed to won her the award of the youngest Dream Maker of the marathon. She was ecstatic to achieve the award and do something for her grandmother's NGO.
This is not the first instant when Sara has shown concern for social causes. In the year 2009 on her 11th birthday on 12th October, she told her parents to spend her birthday with the underprivileged kids of slum Govandi in Mumbai and even shared her goodies with them. This took Sachin by pleasant surprise and moved him dearly.
For the upcoming 2011 Marathon, Sara earlier reported that she undergoes training for this type f marathon. Sara Tendulkar is the eldest daughter of cricket maestro Sachin Tendulkar and Anjali Tendulkar and has a kid brother Arjun Tendulkar who is following in his father's footsteps!

Sachin Tendulkar Takes up Educational Charity in Mumbai
Mumbai, Jun 4: Taking an inspiration from his late father who was committed to certain social responsibilities, India's batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar has decided to sponsor the education of 200 children, who are part of Anapalya, a non-governmental organisation (NGO) in Mumbai.
A formal function to mark this dedication by Tendulkar was organised here on Wednesday.
Addressing a press conference under the Give India campaign, conceptualised by another NGO, Tendulkar said that during his childhood every penny in his house mattered but his father, a teacher by profession, made sure that a newspaper boy who used to deliver newspapers in the colony should be provided with money so that he could pursue his college career.
He say he believed that the 'Joy of Giving Week' campaign that takes place between September 27- October 4 every year will aim to induce people from all walks of life to donate money, time or simple acts of kindness making the society and the country a happier place to live in.
"Such things in life can make a huge difference not only to us as an individual but if you are looking at the entire nation and if every individual decides to take responsibility then it's going to be a happier place," he added.
Tendulkar is considered to be the greatest batsmen in the cricket history being the highest run scorer in both Test matches and One Day Internationals, and also the batsman with the most centuries in either form of the game for India.
World famous Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar has joined with UNICEF to encourage children to improve their health and hygiene.
The Master Blaster, Tendulkar, features in a PSA for the inaugural Global Handwashing Day.
The PSA is targeted at students and will be broadcast this month across India in fourteen different languages.
'Having two young children, I constantly have to remind them to wash their hands before and after meals. I wanted to be a part of this campaign, because washing hands with soap can keep children safe and healthy and protect them against deadly disease,' Tendulkar said.

As a young boy, Tendulkar would practice for hours at the net, and was driven hard by his coach Achrekar.
While at school, his extraordinary batting skills got noticed by the sports circuit. People felt that the young boy would soon become one of the greats in cricket. In the 1988 season, he scored a century in every inning that he played. In one of the inter school matches that year, he had an unbroken 664-run partnership with friend and team mate Vinod Kambli.
