Early years and personal life
Tendulkar was born on 24 April 1973 into a Rajapur Saraswat Brahmin family in Bombay (now Mumbai).[15][16][17] His father Ramesh Tendulkar was a reputed Marathi novelist and his mother Rajni worked in the insurance industry.[18] 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.[19] He spent his formative years in the Sahitya Sahawas Cooperative Housing Society, Bandra (East), Bombay. As a young boy, Tendulkar was considered a bully, and often picked up fights with new children in his school.[20] He also showed an interest in tennis, idolising John McEnroe.[21] 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 of Bombay and a club cricketer of repute, at Shivaji Park, Dadar, Bombay.
Achrekar was impressed with Tendulkar's talent and advised him to shift his schooling to Sharadashram Vidyamandir (English) High School,[1] a school at Dadar which had a dominant cricket team and had produced many notable cricketers.[22] Prior to this, Tendulkar had attended the Indian Education Society's New English School in Bandra (East).[22] He was also coached under the guidance of Achrekar at Shivaji Park in the mornings and evenings.[23] Tendulkar would practice for hours on end in the nets.
