In case you didn't know...

Sachin has regularly been involved with various programs after retirement that focus on training athletes the right way to ensure they receive the requisite treatment to compete at the International level.

The heart of the matter

Sachin Tendulkar, in his message, highlights the importance of having dreams and how they inspired the likes of PV Sindhu, Saina Nehwal and Mithali Raj to achieve their dreams. He mentions that "When dreams don't discriminate, then why do we?"

He also talks about his conversation with Badminton legend Pullela Gopichand and recalls that there is no lack of talent in India but just a lack of proper coaches. Sachin also understands that there is change on the horizon, however.

What's next?

The ultimate aim still continues to be to win gold at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, for which, Indian athletes are working day and night to achieve.

Author's take

Legendary icons such as Tendulkar are doing their bit to ensure that the future of Indian athletes is taken care of, but there comes a time when the management needs to take responsibility of the same and actually implement the programs required to ensure that India competes at the standards that are expected of them.
