Hope he gets well soon. I know it's mild, and I know he'll recover and I know he'll be fine - but I don't think that initial moment of numbness will ever go away when I hear something's wrong with Sachin Tendulkar. We never really outgrow childhood heroes, do we? https://t.co/RNEdvK3HM2 — Saurabh Somani (@saurabh_42) March 27, 2021
