Mentor to budding cricketers, Founding member of Kerala Blasters FC
Which characteristics of Guiding Light have motivated you the most?
The greatness of Sachin lies in his simplicity. With over two decades of international cricketing career he remains grounded even after his achievements. He is one of the most revered player to have graced the game. Few characteristics which have motivated me the most are:

1) Love what you do and do what you love – Follow your heart – but stay committed –
2) Stay cool – in the most critical situations and overcome those with flying colors – he carried the expectations of a cricket crazy nation on his shoulders, remain stoic when things were not in his favor and almost every time he bounced back
3) Stay grounded – Respect Fame – Treasure the learning’s from your elders – Sachin always mentions and shows respect to his Guru Ramakant Achrekar and his family who sacrificed molded him to what he is today – he ensured that success and adulation didn’t go to his head
4) Work Life Balance – even though throughout his hectic schedule – he was always available for his near ones whenever he was needed
5) A Team Man – he knows and acknowledges the contribution of his peers, was supportive in grooming budding cricketers and sports persons – a great mentor one would love to have

How do you think these characteristics can guide others in their hour of darkness?
Darkness is a state of mind – people in distress can look up to Sachin to draw inspiration.
It so happens many times that individuals get overwhelmed with a new situation, are unable to face tough situations in life and get bogged down with their work schedule – but if they try to draw inspiration from the life that Sachin has led it can motivate them to excel. People who are afraid of failures, who are skeptical to try new things should definitely follow the principles of Sachin. When the odds are stacked against you the characteristic of staying cool and calm can help them in moving forward.
