On the occasion of Teacher’s Day, India’s silver medallist at Olympics and World Badminton Championship, PV Sindhu, who is an inspiration to many around the world, has reportedly opted for an interesting way to pay tribute to her teacher, Pullela Gopichand.
PV Sindhu reportedly turned into a producer and shot a digital film to pay tribute to her coach Pullela Gopichand.
In the tribute video, PV Sindhu has come together with the sports drink brand, Gatorade. The campaign, #IHateMyTeacher highlights that why it is fine to hate the ones you love.
Commenting on the video is creating a buzz on the social media, PV Sindhu said, “Coach has worked relentlessly and has had big dreams for me. He is my faith replenisher. Working with Gatorade on this film has hit close to home, and I can’t help but feel indebted to the coach for his relentless pursuit of excellence.”

“This Teacher’s Day, I dedicate all my success to him and urge everyone else to also honour the driving force in their lives. Let’s hate our teachers for pushing us further and believing in us more than we believe in ourselves,” she added
The Teacher’s Day tribute from PV Sindhu to Gopichand is a story of a normal girl hailing from Hyderabad and how her life was transformed from the force which today she considers responsible for her success.
PV Sindhu was not the only one who decided to pay tribute to her coach. Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar also took to his Twitter account and published a video message in which he shared the most important message of his life that his coach taught him.
Sharing his experience, Sachin Tendulkar said that during his school days he used to play only for the junior team and the senior team was playing Harris Shield final in Wankhede Stadium. During those days, Sachin’s coach Ramakant Achrekar had arranged a practice match and informed him that to play that match he will get a chance to bat at number four.
Sachin said that those days he used to practice in matches. No matter how much you spend time in net practice but it’s the match practice that really helps you to learn and score runs.
“And leaving everything behind, I was sitting in Wankhede Stadium cheering for my senior team. When the match ended, I saw my coach Ramakant Achrekar so I though to wish him. I went there and wished him. He asked so how many runs you’ve scored today. I replied no, I was sitting here clapping, cheering for my senior teams. My coach got angry on this and shouted at me in front of others saying that you don’t need to clap for others. You need to focus on your match, cricket and achieve something in your life and that lesson was the biggest lesson of my life,” Sachin said.
“It was after this experience that I never missed any match,” Sachin added.
