Parivartan: stop abuse of women

February 28, 2010

Sachin Tendulkar is already arguably the best cricket player in history. I recently got a chance to watch him set several records in a one-day international match against South Africa where he scored 200 runs not out and increased his record lead in runs scored and centuries scored.

His place in cricket history is set, but he seems hungry to also make a difference off the field. He recently used his fame to endorse Parivartan – a program developed to reduce violence against women and domestic abuse in India (where one in three women report some form of abuse). Around 25 cricket coaches in Mumbai are now being trained to teach their players how to behave with a woman.
