Sachin Tendulkar has 13 coins from his coach Ramakant Achrekar as some of his prized possessions. He would win a coin if he could get through an entire session of nets without being dismissed. Achrekar would put a one-ruppee coin on the top of the stumps, and the bowler who dismissed Tendulkar would get the coin. If Tendulkar passed the whole session without getting dismissed, the coach would give him the coin.

Tendulkar was born at Nirmal Nursing Home on 24 April 1973. His father, Ramesh Tendulkar, was a well-known Marathi novelist and his mother, Rajni, worked in the insurance industry.[33] Ramesh named Tendulkar after his favourite music director, Sachin Dev Burman. Tendulkar has three elder siblings: two half-brothers Nitin and Ajit, and a half-sister Savita. They were Ramesh's children from his first marriage.[34] He spent his formative years in the Sahitya Sahawas Cooperative Housing Society, Bandra (East). As a young boy, Tendulkar was considered a bully, and often picked up fights with new children in his school.[35] He also showed an interest in tennis, idolising John McEnroe.[36] To help curb his mischievous and bullying tendencies, Ajit introduced him to cricket in 1984. He introduced the young Sachin to Ramakant Achrekar, a famous cricket coach and a club cricketer of repute, at Shivaji Park, Dadar. In the first meeting, the young Sachin did not play his best. Ajit told Achrekar that he was fe ...

Personal Record from Asha Bhosle & Coins from His Coach, Achrekar, are priceless for Sachin Tendulkar: One would be spoilt for choice if he is asked to choose his favourite pick from the following memorabilias: a signed boxing gloves by Muhammed Ali, a guitar signed by Dire Straits' Mark Knopfler, a bat autographed by none other than Sir Don Bradman. But ask Sachin Tendulkar and the answer will be the coins that he earned from his childhood coach Ramakant Achrekar after those rigorous training sessions at the Shivaji Park Gymkhana ground. During those days, Achrekar would put a Re 1 coin on top of the stump and if Sachin wouldn't get out, the coin would be his. "I think the most important memorabilia for me is the coins that I have got from my coach Achrekar sir, those are the most important ones," Tendulkar said at the launch of India's first celebrity commerce website Collectabillia in association with Cafe Coffee Day lounge.

Batting great Sachin Tendulkar turned 39 on Tuesday with an impassioned plea from his childhood coach to carry on playing cricket for India since he is "far from finished". "All those murmurs about his retirement must stop, this is not the right time to go," said Ramakant Achrekar, 80, the man credited with the early training of the leading scorer in Test history. "He must not retire now. He must go on playing and scoring runs for the country," the celebrated coach told the Hindustan Times. Tendulkar made his international debut in 1989 and has played more Tests (188) and one-day internationals (463) than any player. He is the highest run-getter in both forms of the game and last month became the first batsman to complete 100 international centuries -- 51 in Tests and 49 in one-dayers. But Tendulkar took more than a year to move from 99 to 100 hundreds -- against Bangladesh during the Asia Cup in Dhaka -- and many fans started to believe he needed to rethink his career, especially in one-dayers. The Mumba ...
