When Sachin wrote to wife Anjali

When Sachin wrote to wife Anjali

Walking down memory lane, legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar on Wednesday recalled writing letters to wife Anjali in the pre-mobile era and found her handwriting “beautiful,” which anyone would “watch and admire”.

But writing letters to his wife needed some effort from the former batsman.

“Hitting a cricket ball came naturally to me. But, while writing letters to Anjali, I had to doubly check what I was writing,” he said with a sheepish grin.

“.. in those days when there were no mobiles and the only mode of communication was through landlines or writing letters, I started writing letters. I started with my parents and later wrote some letters to (wife) Anjali,” Tendulkar said, during a handwriting promotional event for here.

While doctors’ handwriting were usually not clear as one would expect, his wife Anjali, who is a doctor by profession, was an exception, the 40-year-old said.

“But my wife, I think, is an exception because she has got a beautiful handwriting, which anyone would watch and admire.”

To a query on who, among his cricket colleagues had the best of handwriting, he said, “I think Anil (Kumble) writes quite clearly.”
