Sachin Tendulkar, Mile Sur Mera Tumhara

Sachin Tendulkar retired from cricket a few days ago.

The video, Mile Sur Mera Tumhara,  of 1988 vintage, must be updated. It is a great video with fantastic imagery, lyrics, music and vocals.

There is only one sound thing missing in that video. Only because that sound had not originated till then. A year later, on 15 Nov, 1989, Sachin Tendulkar debuted for India. And somewhere along the line shouts of Sachiiin, Sachin found voice.

Sports persons and other other eminent personalities who didn’t feature earlier, who were yet to start in their chosen fields, or who weren’t born 25 years ago can now be added.

And this time the music director will have to add shouts of Sachiiin, Sachin to the score.

I came across this new version uploaded three years ago. Sadly, it is no match for the original.
