He came in after the retirement of Gavaskar, and India was struggling, particularly against West Indies.  Then he came in in the Pakistan series, and Indian cricket has never been the same since.

I've enjoyed watching him play since the beginning.  A few of his decisions I didn't agree w/ - such as his insistence in opening the batting when India was short of batting talent.  It was better once he was joined by Sourav, but b4 that, when the middle order would be filled by lesser players (Sourav & Dravid didn't start until 1996), India lacked a good finisher.  Of course, today it's all different w/ MSD, Riana & Ashwin forming the lower order batting.

Along w/ Dravid, Laxman & Sourav, they formed a formidable backbone to the Indian batting, but India's bowling was thin, and unluckily for them, Australia had a team that was probably better than their Bradman era team - w/ the likes of the Waugh twins, McGrath, Ponting, Gillispie, Fleming & Taylor.  (Warne too, but not so much against India)

Unfortunately, by the time the bulk of those had retired & India was the world's #1 team, Sachin's best was behind him.  However, as Bradman himself noted, he was arguably the best.  Cricinfo had a contest a while back for an all time world XI, and their middle order was Bradman, Tendulkar, Richards and then Sobers.

He has 2 tests left, and the final will be in Mumbai.  I hope his final test innings is a good one - needn't be a century or even a 50, but hope it ain't a duck like Bradman.

I don't have any word to say. I watched cricket only for you. You are the person responsible to change what cricket is today. The humbleness politness down to earth attitude your passion for cricket just make me respect you more. Dediction that you have for cricket if one percent comes in today's young players the indian team will be unbeatable. The person who are saying that u should have retired when u where in good form but why should he when he had more to give to us to entertain us to be more proud of him and when he thinks he can give more to us why should he retire then.
Luv u respect u
Regrets never saw you playing live on the field
now will not have any opportunity to see you playing
