Sachin! Sachin! #madeofgreat

Thinking of someone #madeofgreat is not tricky because there are many but the difficult part is to name just one. My father have always been my inspiration. His perseverance and assiduity in his 40 years of service have been an inspiration. He is a living legend with simple living and high thinking. There is only one person whose life has been as impelling as my dad's but he has galvanized a lot many more minds. #Sachin! #Sachin! It is not less than a holy verse for a master blaster fanatic and #Sachin is the God himself. This post is just a meagre attempt to hold his magnificence in a handful of words. Lets see how it fairs...

Who is greater than #Sachin
‘coz he is second to none,

Cricket has seen many, 
but #Sachin is only one,

He is the god of cricket, 
sitting on the Everest of runs,

Some are Hindu, some Muslim; 
but He is my religion,

He is the quintessential cricketer, 
yet beyond all convention,

He ruled the world from 22 yards, 
with his throne in all the hearts that he won,

He is the epitome of timing, 
and paradigm of immaculate precision,

He has a record of records,
 and a ton of tons,

He demolished his oppositions, 
without ever touching a gun,

He is the totem of humility,
 an exemplar of passion,

He saw a dream, 
and lived it with diligence & resolution, 

His life is an epic, 
for us immortals it’s a lesson,

We can’t possibly match his feats, 
but trying it would be fun!!!

Watching you has made our eyes even more precious!!!

This post is written for the #madeofgreat campaign which showcases the confluence of two global brands-Tata Motors and Lionel Messi. The campaign builds upon Tata Motors’ DNA of trust, authenticity, reliability, simplicity, as well as its commitment to innovation. 


  1. This is an amazing association by two global brands - Tata Motors and
    Lionel Messi. In the minds of consumers, Tata Motors is one of the most
    reliable and trustworthy brand. Lionel Messi, itself, is the one of the
    most talented and reliable player in the field of sports and he is an
    icon for today’s youth. Thus, this association and campaign will

  2. The story of a Legend in himself - that's how I will describe it in a short sentence. Very well written with the pics which enhances the simplicity yet greatness of the Man..Salutations and very happy for you to have got inspired and bringing out your best in life.

    My answer: Tata is a name which any and every person can rely on for its honesty, commitment and perseverance. Lionel Messi is a legend who has carved his name in history books with total dedication to the game, simple living and improvisation which is seen with each game he plays. The association of Tata Motors and Lionel Messi as their Brand Ambassador will definitely give an edge to the Tata group over its competitors solely because the brand Ambassador also holds the same reputation of not letting his fans down ever, like Tata Motors who have given the best to the world over the decades. Its an exemplary association par excellence.

    You can choose my answer as the best if you feel I described it all well.. :)

  3. When you say SACHIN ... then you need not to read /think anymore as no matter how much you write , words will always fall short to praise the REAL LIFE HERO he is ... 23 year of Flawless Innings and still inspiring Billions even after going off the Field ..SALUTE .

    Messi has shown a similar character and reached to Pinnacle of game starting right from rages. His association with TATA surely forms a synergy between the values and dedication for the customer/followers as Tata Motors shows as Messi show for his fans

Both believe in excelling in whatever they do and set examples for others to follow.
