Dr PN Mini's tricky question about Sachin's wife Anjali
Dr P N Mini, assistant professor of microbiology at Kozhikode Medical College, shot a tricky question at Sachin Tendulkar during the Mother's Day chat. She asked about Sachin's wife Anjali, who is a doctor but took up the family responsibilities after marriage.
Dr Mini asked Sachin, "Dr Anjali is a strong lady. Her decision to take up responsibility of family instead of following her career was brave. Can you evaluate Anjali in a mother's role in the family?"
Sachin replied "Anjali had a very good career. But when she was confronted with the matter of family, she decided herself to take care of the family. I could focus on my career only because she took that brave decision. Woman is the backbone of any family. They have great role in leading the family ahead.
All women around me are precious to me. I owe to my sister and Anjali's mother also. My first cricket bat was gifted by my sister. I can never forget that. She is a person with calm nature and full of optimism. I feel happy on hearing her talk.
I grew up with my aunt. I see her as my mother. Both uncle and aunt have sacrificed a lot for me. Also my two brothers, father and Anjali's father have great roles in the growth of my career. My biggest fortune is being part of this family. When we meet a player, we should also see many others who sacrificed and supported them in their life. We cannot separate the players from their support system. They have a big role in helping the player give his best performance," Sachin said.
