New Delhi:Renowned coach Tarak Sinha, who gave India many international cricketers, passed away on Saturday morning. He had been ill for a long time. 71 years old Tarak Sinha breathed his last at 3 am today. Tarak Sinha used to run an academy named Sonet Cricket Club in Delhi.

12 players who came out of his coaching represented India in international cricket while more than 100 of his players showed their talent in first class cricket.

Tarak Sinha was the 5th coach of the country to be honored with the Dronacharya Award. Before him, this award was received by Desh Prem Azad, Gurcharan Singh, Ramakant Achrekar and Sunita Sharma. Tarak Sinha was unmarried and has a sister and hundreds of students in his family. The Sonnet Club was founded by Sinha to find many talented cricketers of the country.

The club said in a statement that it is with a heavy heart to inform that the founder of Sonet Club, Tarak Sinha, who had been battling cancer for two months, passed away at 3 am on Saturday. Known as ‘Ustadji’ among his students, Sinha was not a grassroots cricket coach. In five decades, he discovered empty talent and then refined his skills and gave a platform to play through the club.

This is the reason why his eminent students kept taking his well being till the last moment and made necessary arrangements. His assistant Devender Sharma, who coached Indian wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant, was also with him.
His early students included Delhi cricket legend Surinder Khanna, Manoj Prabhakar, the late Raman Lamba, Ajay Sharma, Atul Vasan, Sanjeev Sharma. K.P. among the fanciers of domestic cricket.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) never used his talent to spot talent. The only time she was made the coach of the women’s team was when the careers of cricketers like Jhulan Goswami and Mithali Raj were just beginning.

For Sinha, the sonnet was his family and his dedication to cricket was such that he never married. Another aspect of his coaching was that he did not marginalize the studies of his students. He would immediately send back the students who came for practice during school or college examinations and did not allow them to come till the completion of the examination.

Devender recognized the talent of Pant coming with his mother. Sinha told him to keep an eye on this boy for a few weeks. Pant’s story of living in a gurdwara has become a cricket legend, but Sinha arranged for Pant to attend a school in Delhi from where he appeared for his Class X and XII board exams. Once in a conversation, Pant had said, ‘Taarak sir is not a father figure. He is my father.’

Sinha was not a businessman or a corporate cricket coach, but a master who does not hesitate to slap a student when he makes a mistake. Such was his respect that even today his students’ eyes water and their lips smile upon hearing his name.

The list of players who learned cricket from Tarak Sinha is long, but there were 12 of his disciples who played for the country after learning cricket from him, including Surinder Khanna, Randhir Singh, Raman Lamba, Manoj Prabhakar, Ajay Sharma, KP Bhaskar, Atul Wassan, Ashish Nehra, Sanjeev Sharma, Aakash Chopra, Shikhar Dhawan and Rishabh Pant.
