The year 1973 as changed the phase of Indian sports with the emergence of three all time great sports personalities. Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar, Rahul Sharad Dravid and Leander Paes. There are so many others born in the same year and achieved in various fields, but the reason which made me scribble about these three giants is there Never Give In attitude. Leander and Sachin are the stalwarts in their respective games. Both have completed two decades of International sports and still doesnt have the mood to retire. They still appear as a 16 year old wanting to play more and more. Sachin has all the records in the book, Leander has the Olympic medal and what can you say about charismatic Dravid.

If you take the whole of the 70's, it has given us best sportsmen of all time in the like of Sehwag, Zaheer, Ganguly, Kumble, Laxman, Mahesh Bhupathi, Dileep Tirkey, Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore etc, but 73 in specific has produced world beaters, which made me write this post.
The players born in the 80's should also follow the foot prints of their seniors and take Indian sports to the next level.


Could you say in which sport the guys mentioned in the second Paragraph represented India.
