1) His Master’s Voice

This chapter traces the route Sachin Tendulkar has travelled through his 24 years in international cricket. As a fan I saw what Sachin achieved and felt his pain in 1999, felt the agony in 2003 and then in 2011 was on top of the world. But the moment that stood out for me was when he took on the world at the age of 18. Tendulkar’s rise from being a boy wonder to one man army to one of the fab four and thereafter to the status of demi-god. I lived through them all. Through this, I grew as a person as I learnt to adapt to varying situations and different highs in my life


2) Captain Cool

Every company needs a CEO who turns things around with his vision and his quiet passion for the job. He can well be the Indira Nooyi or any other top CEO currently in operation in the corporate boardroom. For Indian cricket that role was performed by MS Dhoni, who played a crucial role at a time when things needed a step up. His leadership proved to be a big reason why Indian cricket turned a new corner
