Tendulkar offers a lesson to youth: Dr. JP

“In a country starved of excellence and world-class accomplishments, Sachin Tendulkar’s extraordinary feat is a much needed confidence booster,” said Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan here today.

In a media statement, Dr. JP pointed out that sports persons like Dhyanchand, Sunil Gavaskar, Rahul Dravid, Kapil Dev and Sachin tendulkar have had the most important influence in transforming a country shackled by centuries of foreign oppression into a self-confident modern India.

“Tendulkar and others have demonstrated that excellence is a combination of immense talent, life-long discipline, equanimity in the face of adversity and above all team spirit that rejoices in collective success,” said Dr. JP.

Dr. JP said that youth should realize that everyone is capable of success. What matters is discipline and relentless pursuit of success for the greater glory of our society, and not for undeserving accumulation of wealth by plunder or for individual greed at the cost of public good.

  1. JP, Everything was good and inspiring in Tendulkar batting or his 100 100 except that he reflected timid Indians. Indians are timid and cry.

    People from Asia remain on weak wicket to face the fast and furious bowler from Developed Nations.

    We Indians have a long way to go.
