    But each one flies the best it can. Why compare one against the other? Each one is unique, special and beautiful.

    No problem!!

    You are giving due respect to Sachin Tendulkar.
    Rahul Dravid also deserves the same respect.

    Its shame that no one gives him the deserved respect!!

    Dravid received all the respect he deserved.

    He don't deserve the same respect what Sachin receives.
    With all due respect to Dravid, Sachin is a better and greater player.
