Amitabh Bachchan Miffed With Sachin Tendulkar Being Compared To Don Bradman
Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan is miffed over constant media comparisons of master blaster Sachin Tendulkar with cricket legends like Don Bradman.Big Big who is hard core fan of Sachin says he is proud of Sachin who became the first to score 50 Test centuries.
Amitabh wrote in his blog, "Why must there be a debate or even a discussion on whether Sachin is greater than Don Bradman or not? Sachin is greater, period! By bringing the topic up for debate you are somewhere unsure whether he really is deserving of being great or not. And this is objectionable to me.”
"How much more does one have to do to prove one's credentials? And who are the media to concur who is great or not? We know he is. Matter over. Do not, I plead, bring down the stature of this great son of the land by continuously comparing him to others. Let others compare themselves to him. Why do we always play it the other way around?
"Why do we always want to describe our achievement or subject with a comparison from the West. Alright, the West is far developed than us, is richer materially, advanced and secure. So how does this give us the need to comment that they are superior. Or that the best comes from there and not here," he wrote.
