A book launch event in Mumbai became special when Sachin Tendulkar and wife Anjali Tendulkar graced the occasion with their presence. Titled Even When There Is A Doctor, with the focus on child health care, the book was launched on February 8.
Written by Dr Yashwant Amdekar along with Dr Rajesh Chokhani and Krishnan Sivaramakrishnan, the book emphasizes on how parents can improve the health of their child.
Speaking at the event, Sachin said, “The book tells us how important first 1,000 days are in a child’s life. I always followed my teacher’s advice of ‘An apple a day keeps the doctor away’ until I met a doctor (referring to wife Anjali) and felt like going back to my teacher and telling her, ‘An apple along with a doctor is a better option’.”
While addressing the media, Sachin admitted that he was a naughty child, and it was not easy to manage him. “It’s good to be naughty but respecting elders is equally important,” as quoted by ANI.
Anjali Tendulkar also addressed the media and said, “The book is a manual we have all been looking for. Nowadays, parents are busy and their routines leave them with no time to devote to their kids.”
Anjali emphasized that the book will help parents identify the problem with their kids and rectify them at the same time.
