In his LinkedIn post, Sachin spoke about his life after retirement from cricket in 2013, and how his life passed before his eyes.
“The years flashed before my eyes. The victories, the losses, the celebrations, the challenges and the silences…the journey. India’s win at the World Cup in 2011 was a dream come true as was the team’s generous gesture of dedicating the cup to me. But, that chapter of my life was ending. What now, I wondered.”
He added that his own thoughts and close friends helped him clear his head and move towards retirement and towards his second innings, which was about satisfaction.
“My first innings was about chasing my dreams, the second one is about satisfaction. I want to give back to the game, that has made me what I am, to society and to the less fortunate. The scope has changed but the objective and drive of doing my best, remains. I’m still learning, still discovering new things, meeting new people, and contributing in my own way, to make things better. “
