Mumbai: Sachin Tendulkar was close to quitting cricket a year after he debuted against Pakistan on November 15, 1989.
 
The batting maestro was offered a PR job by a garment company during his 17th birthday celebrations, but the humble cricketer politely turned down the offer.
 
Sun Grace Mafatlal, which was also his first sponsorer, offered the job during a party it had organised for Sachin on his birthday in 1990 - his 1st birthday after entering in international cricket. Tendulkar got a job in the PR division of Sun Grace as a birthday gift!
 
As Sachin Tendulkar turns 40, his "insatiable hunger and incredible talent" has refused to die down. The cricket legend had proved that love for the game comes straight from the heart.

In 2002, Sachin launched a restraunt "Tendulkar's" at Colaba in Mumbai on October 7, 2002. The batting maestro joined hands with one of the renowned names in the hospitality industry, Sanjay Narang.
 
The customers at the restraunt chain are served Tendulkar's favourite dishes. Sachin has personally overseen the menu list served at the restraunt, which insiders claim was prepared based on his experiences with foods during overseas tour.
