Sachin Tendulkar is rightfully the ultimate legend when it comes to Indian cricket. Even before he set a world record for 100 centuries, he was the pride of the nation, and everyone looked up to him. In his 24-year career as a cricketer, he represented India in the best way possible and won millions of hearts around the globe. To tell us more about his spectacular journey in cricket and beyond, he joined our Editor-in-Chief, Kamiya Jani, for our 100th Sunday Brunch episode.
Sachin Tendulkar Shared An Anecdote About Chinese Food
Sachin Tendulkar spent 24 years of his life playing cricket for India, and most of them were spent travelling. Now that he was celebrating his 50th birthday, we wanted to know what birthdays looked like at his home. He shared that he likes to spend the day with his loved ones and have great food. Since he is not a big party person, he likes to keep things simple.
We wanted to know more about his interests, especially in food, and he shared an anecdote about the first time he had Chinese food. When he was a kid, he went out with his friends to a restaurant where everyone contributed 10 bucks for the meal. However, the older kids sitting at the beginning of the table served most of the food on their plates, and the leftovers reached the younger kids sitting at the end. Even though he didn’t get to eat much, it sure sounds like an interesting memory.
He Revealed What Sunday Brunch At His Home Looks Like
Now that we were discussing food, we had to know about Sachin Tendulkar’s Sunday brunches at home. He shared that when he was a kid, Sunday lunches at his home were pretty special, and he used to look forward to them.
