Chase your dreams: Tendulkar to youth

New Delhi: Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar advised youngsters on Saturday to chase their dreams to excel in their respective fields, but discouraged them from wasting too much time on modern gadgets.

Tendulkar, speaking at a programme, said that dreams come true if one chases them hard.

“I would encourage the youth of India to dream because dreams come true if you chase them hard,” he said after accepting an award from President Pranab Mukherjee at the Rashtrapati Bhawan.

“I also at times had to face defeat but the most important thing I learnt from my sport was when you are defeated you stand up to face another challenge.

“I am extremely honoured to receive this award.

“I was asked to give a message to youth of India and I could not think of anything than the advice I got from my grandmother who said ‘Health is wealth, take care of your health’,” said Tendulkar, who recently retired from international cricket after an illustrious career spanning 24 years.

He asked the youth to engage in outdoor activities to keep themselves fit and in good health so that they can focus on their respective fields. (PTI)
