    Sachin is well known Indian demigod.But to expect everyone to know him is hardlyan index of his fame.
    The twitter battle about tennis star making a comment is really funny
    Let's not blame Maria Sharapova for not knowing Sachin : Tennis, News - India Today
    Is it mandatory for Maria to know who Tendulkar is?

    Irony is..there is a luxury project to b launched in her name and she is not even aware of our Indian legend. We r just obsessed of west. If DLF Summut for eg..was to b launched / renamed as DLF Satyajit ray...will it loose its merits as a project!! Its a shame for us as a race...

      horizonkns,
      Cricket is just a game.We have allowed betting to go,scams to take place in IPL but We indians have still allowed ourselves to be taken so much by this game,that we idolise players and give them demi god status..
      What is the need to feel upset if Sharapaova or Nadal does not know Tendulakr?
      There are many famous people in their own fields and may not be known by other famous people.
      Tweeting about it is a way of showing our inferiority complex.It hardly matters whether Sharapova knows about Tendulkar or not.Same craze was there about our actors trying to enter Hollywood.
      Aishwarya Rai tired to get a foot in but could not succeed.
      Her willingness to go as per Hollywood requirements in scenes with heroes was questionable and she did not make it,though she is well known in West due to loreal.
      There are more important matters,probably someone could send the tennis player a book about Tendulakr and hope she reads it.
      ps I am sure Sharapova will not come to inaugurate the project.

        Well its not about her knowing him....Its her limited knowledge..Her loss! .. Homestead should learn from this and lauch the project in an Indian icon. M sure there r many too choose frm..But they will not do it....If DLF was too launch a project in UK...will they name it Ratan Tata towers or Milkha singh for that matter....Answere is no...Our obsession for west is deep and artifical..

            Don't connect ignorance of Maria about sachin to Indian's obsession of west. I play and watch tennis and i rate Maria as a much better athlete than Tendulkar.
            Maria has lived her whole life in US and she cannot be blamed for not knowing a cricket player. Blame it on the reporter who asked this question from Maria.
            just visit Maria's page on fb and see the chato-tato type fans of Tendulkar dirtying the name of this country.

            slightly unrelated news item.

              ashish18,
              I read this powerful article and regret that I have to admit that much of it is true.
              We really need to change our fossilised mindset.
              Education has not made us change our medieval attitudes.
              I have seen pHD qualified people behave worse than slum dwellers in societies when checked about water wastage or misuse of society premises.
              Their education and qualification does not prevent them from doing such petty irregular things.
              Change has to begin from self first.
