Sachin Tendulkar deserves Bharat Ratna
Sachin Tendulkar is a cricket icon and if the Bharat Ratna is conferred on him, which he deserves in every respect, it will not only be a great honour for him but also the entire field of sports. He has established all records in the game of cricket whether it is ODI or Test formats and he has left all great players of the world of the game of cricket behind and held India’s head high.He is a genius and master of the art of batting. That is why he is called batting maestro. Sachin is the only cricket player who is considered as God of cricket. With double century against South Africa in ODI match at Indore, he has become the first batsman in the world to have achieved this feat. He has already scored highest number of runs in ODIs and Tests in the world of cricket. As far as honouring him with the highest civilian award Bharat Ratna, he desrves most in the country at this this point of time. He has aroused tremendous admiration and respect among the countrymen. He has served the country with all commitments and dedication by playing cricket for the country for more than twenty years without any break. By honourning him with Bharat Ratna, it will not only be a great econcouragement to the game of cricket but also the entire sports. Our nation is already lacking in giving due encouragement to sports. It is only Sachin Tendulkar as a batting maestro who gets immense admiration and respect outside the country. Sachin Tendulkar has been a household name of every Indian for the last 20 years. His commitment, dedication and devotion to the service of his nation are unquestionable. Sachin is non-controversial, but the Bharat Ratna award is most of the time mired in controversy. Though political class considers itself as their first claim on the Bharat Ratna, it has been also awarded to musian, sitarists and scientist. Sachin Tendulkar is a role model for the entire sports community as well as every Indian. Bhara Ratna award is given to the person who has given great service to the nation in his or her field of profession. He or she should be of such calibre as to be emulated by the entire nation. The batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar is being emulated by all sportspersons to do best for the country. Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan has rightly decided to reccomend Sachin Tendulkar’s name for Bharat Ratna. Though the countrmen have undying love for Sachin Tendulkar, he must be honoured with Bharat Ratna.
