The National Anthem Singing By Indian Sports Legends:Sachin Tendulkar said that singing the national anthem in front of a packed Wankhede Stadium before the 2011 World Cup final is the “proudest feeling” he has ever had in his life.”But it (singing of national anthem) goes to a different level altogether, when you are playing against Pakistan in 2003 World Cup (in Centurion), standing inside the stadium, in the middle of the group, with 60,000 people singing ‘Jana Gana Mana’,” the right-handed former India batsman said.

He was speaking at the unveiling of an album ‘The Sport Heroes’, aimed to inspire the younger generation towards sports. “When you sing the ‘Jana Gana Mana’, your head is always held high, but when you sing it (standing) in the centre of the ground, then…seena chauda ho jata hai (chest swells with pride),” Tendulkar said. “A couple of experiences, one was that (against Pakistan). The other one was when we played the 2011 World Cup finals, I can never forget that experience, the entire stadium singing ‘Jana Gana Mana’ and it still reverberates in my ears. It’s the proudest feeling I have ever had in my life,” the master blaster said.”We achieve so many personal goals, also team milestones are achieved, but when its comes to our national anthem, everything else takes a backseat,” he feels.
Sportspersons are the one who can represent their Nations and can serve for their Nations with good identity. Sportspersons can make their country proud with their gaming skills. Every aspect of our lives teaches us something.
