As India celebrates Teachers' Day on the birth anniversary of former President Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan's birthday on September 5, we look at ten extraordinary coaches
On Guru Purnima, Sachin Tendulkar extended his heartfelt gratitude to his childhood coach Ramakant Achrekar, who passed away in January this year.
Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut took to Twitter to convey his message.
His body was kept at Shivaji Park, where he coached aspiring cricketers and then taken to a nearby crematorium.
Achrekar, who had been battling old age-related ailments for the past few days, died in Mumbai Wednesday. He was 87.
Cricket in heaven will be enriched with the presence of (Ramakant) Achrekar sir, says Sachin Tendulkar.
Tendulkar, of course, is the most famous of his students. But Achrekar had groomed many cricketers who went onto represent India.
Achrekar was born in 1932 and played a key role in shaping up Tendulkar's career over the years.
