When yoh made Sachin Tendulkar your God of cricket did you not realise? Did you not realise this is exactly how the Hindu Gods were made.
The common man was turned into your mystical God today because he achieved merit in this field.
The history will repeat when after centuries people will forget what was cricket and who was Sachin. There would be ‘Temples’ where they would worship him. Maybe not exactly like the ones we have now. But it certainly is a possibility.
So all I ask you is stop just stop claiming humans to be God. There is genuinely no such thing as God. There are only extraordinary human beings.
There was no God in the past, neither would there be one in the future.
