Sachin Tendulkar’s WAX STATUE catches the attention of most of Ludhiana’s Media

March 20th, 2012

Sachin Tendulkar was in Ludhiana today. Well, almost. His wax-look alike, ably sculptured by wax artist Prabhakar did the honors of sharing a 30-kgs cake, celebrating Sachin’s unique feat with hundreds of Sachin admirers celebrating the hundredth hundred, on the pitch at the upmarket Sarabha Nagar market here today.

The wax statue of Sachin was especially brought on the field by the wax artist as a special tribute for the special occasion on the invitation of Harjinder Singh, a bakery and restauraurant owner in Sarabha Nagar Market. Prabhakar could be seen enjoying from ear to ear when people mistook the statue for real. He was particularly happy to see young people appreciating his work amidst the fun and frolic. It was amazing to see that the generation-next was interested to know more about his Madame Tussad-like museum.

Young boys and girls danced to the tune of the latest Punjabi and Hindi songs. Known for his perfect timing and managing ability, Harjinder Singh, the organiser of the gala celebration played old songs of Sachin Dev Burman, from whose name Sachin’s father gave him his first name.

As Sachin’s 100th ton is talk of the world, Cricket is in the air. Ludhiana – not known much as cricket city was not to be left behind. “We were planning on the cake since the time Sachin was planning to reach the target”, said Harjinder Singh of Hot Breads and Yellow Chilli, which put together the huge cake with aplomb.
It is not that it was a youth show alone. Erstwhile cricketer and Punjab Cricket Board Selector Chaman Lal was also present. He told the young audience, “One day we should have a Sachin from Punjab.” That was the icing on the Hot Breads’ Cricket cake.
