In India, Sachin Tendulkar is treated as God and he enjoys a huge fan base. He had started his career in cricket at the mere age of 16, and had become a role model for millions of cricket lovers. In the entire span of his cricketing career, he had achieved various milestones, owing to his consistency, discipline, focus and humble nature. He is fondly known as ‘God of Cricket’ and he has fans, who worship him. While his fans worship him, Sachin Tendulkar is worshiping Lord Ganesha as he celebrates Ganesh utsav with his family.

It was in 1990, when 17-year-old, Sachin Tendulkar had seen Anjali Mehta for the first time and had fallen in love with her. Four years after dating, Sachin and Anjali had tied the knot on May 24, 1995, and are now living their happily ever after with two kids, Sara Tendulkar and Arjun Tendulkar. Sachin’s close knit family has always been media’s favourite and we wait for him to share snippets of his life with his family.
As the nation is observing Ganesh mahotsav, the ‘God of Cricket’, Sachin also celebrated the occasion with his family. Taking to his IG handle, Sachin Tendulkar shared a video and two photos with his wife, Anjali and daughter, Sara. In the video, we can see Sachin performing the Ganesh aarti with his wife, staff and other family members. The remaining family members can be seen connected over a video call. Other than the video, Sachin shared two pictures from the same, one with his wife and in the other picture, we can spot his daughter, Sara as well donning a yellow suit. His caption can be read as "Wishing everyone a very happy #GaneshChaturthi." Take a look:
We all know Sachin's younger daughter, Sara is already a social media star. While she stays away from the limelight, she often becomes part of the headlines because of her amazing fashion picks. On April 24, 2020, Sachin Tendulkar had turned a year older and his princess, Sara had taken to her Instagram handle and had shared two Instagram stories for him. In one of the Instagram stories, she had shared a childhood picture with her 'daddy dearest', Sachin and had captioned it as "Happy Birthday".

Sachin is a dotting daddy, who loves his kids and makes sure to teach them the right lessons of life. In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Sachin had shared the important lessons, he tries to teach his kids. He had said, "I tell Sara and Arjun that too. Value whatever you have got. If you are complaining about things you don’t have, trust me, even at 80 you will be doing the same and life will pass you by. Each one has his own share. God fixes a quota of things for everyone. You can’t have everything always. It is important to make the most of what is allotted to you. I have enjoyed every stage of my life. I am happy where I am, and thankful to God for blessing me with so much."
A doctor by profession, Anjali had decided to take a step back in her career to raise their family and had let her man focus on the game is what we call selfless love. During his farewell speech at the Wankhede Stadium in 2013, an emotional Sachin Tendulkar had thanked his wife and had stated, “I know Anjali being a doctor, there was a wonderful career in front of her. When we decided to have a family, Anjali decided to step back and say ‘you continue with your cricket and I’ll take responsibility of the family’. Without that, I don’t think I would have been able to play cricket freely and without any stress. Thanks for bearing with all my fuss and frustrations and all sorts of rubbish I’ve spoken. You’re the best partnership I’ve had in my life.” (Recommended Read: Shilpa Shetty Shares Video Of Samisha's First Ghaghra Choli As Family Plans To Twin For Ganesh Puja)
