According to the icon Sachin Tendulkar Sport only recognises performance on the field and not the background of an athlete, after a glorious career , breaking a plethora of records Tendulkar got retired on 2013.
“Every time we enter the dressing room, it really didn’t matter where you came from, which part of the country and where you belong. It was a level field for everyone.
Sport doesn’t recognise anything other than your performance on field,” Tendulkar told PTI during a virtual interaction after being named as the brand ambassador of e-learning platform ‘Unacademy’.
Through the new initiative to unify people is what he also talked about.
“You are out there as an individual who wants to contribute towards the team,” added the 47-year-old legendary batsman, who will connect with students and share his experiences.
“That is what we want to do, try and share my experiences. (I was) being part of different schools along board and met different coaches. I myself learnt a lot and those are the experiences I want to share” he added.
“We will be conducting classes free of cost, so I think we wanted this platform to be accessible to anyone and everyone,” the batsman, who has numerous records to his name, further added.
Continue to chase your dreams, dreams do come true, number of times we push ourselves and we feel it is a dead end, but it is never dead end, so take that extra step and you will achieve your goal,” Tendulkar said.
He has also mentioned about his father, Ramesh Tendulkar, who was a professor and who travelled through Mumbai to teach his students, his dedication was such.
“Today if he was alive, he would have been really proud of what Unacademy has enabled to do, because then not in thousands, but millions had access to him.” He added.
Tendulkar had instructed the CEO and CO- founder of Unacademy to reach out to 1 billion users.
