Welcome to a world where you are author, creator and, of course, Sachin Tendulkar. In this novel, the reader takes up the guise of the famous cricketer and sets forth on a philosophical journey like no other. Told in a light, engaging voice, the story moves from a single incident the interview of a prospective candidate for the position of a college principal to larger speculations about life, the universe and the great game known as existence. Sachin witty, sharp and observant functions as a guide on this metaphysical, fantastical journey from the everyday of a college ground to the larger ground of life. About the Author Pramesh Ratnakar has been a teacher all his life. He taught at Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College, University of Delhi, for twenty years. Now he is the head of department of English at Shiv Nadar University. He has published books on Indian culture and religion, but has always thought of himself as a sportsman who strayed into academics.
