#6 Boria Majumdar
Boria Majumdar, the co-author of Sachin’s autobiography, Playing It My Way, shared a few anecdotes with the crowd:
“When we actually started, for me there were two fundamental challenges. All of us have covered this man for the longest time. His life is a public book. What can we say that people don't already know?
"Two, to actually get his voice in a manner that he wants.” – Boria.
“I will share three anecdotes. One is that, about a year back, in 2013, Sachin comes from England and starts training with Atul Ranade. They cycle and do a few laps. Sachin was on the floor after that as he could only see white. They called a autowala and took Sachin home.” – Boria.
“In August 2008, he [Sachin] went to Germany for two back to back surgeries. Was adviced 10 weeks rest. But got back into action in about six weeks.” – Boria.
“The third is that Anjali [Tendulkar] posed as a sports journalist to meet Sachin for the first time. Sachin had a couple of pieces of chocolate left from his England tour and he split it to share.” – Boria.Published 05 Nov 2014, 19:27 IST
