New Delhi: Sachin Tendulkar has often credited his father for helping shape his personality.
Like Sachin, most boys and girls look up to their father as a hero growing up.
The master blaster has publicly spoken on several occasions about his father's contribution in his cricket career.
Interestingly, Mr. Ramesh Tendulkar stressed on the fact that his son should grow up to become a better human being than cricketer.
Sachin not just shared this nugget of advice from his father during his farewell speech but has also documented it in his book and upcoming documentary.
