BharatRatna for Sachin


Sachin Tendulkar. That’s the name that appears on my mind every now and then. Just 3 days ago, he not just broke a record, made a new record too. He surpassed Saeed Anwar’s 194 to score 200*, something which none other in the history of cricket had done. Batting records are now the other name of Sachin. There is perhaps no other milestone left to be achieved by Sachin. Now, in cricket, Sachin is the standard. He has, undoubtedly, emerged as the GOD OF CRICKET.
I am thankful to the god that he gave me life in an era in which Sachin played cricket. I wonder what would have been the fate of Indian cricket if there would not be any Sachin. He made the game a big success in India. People glued to their TV sets to watch Sachin batting. If Kapil Dev and his boys made cricket immensely popular in India by winning the World Cup, Sachin made cricket a religion in the country. The dedication of this man to play cricket is virtually not seen in any other cricketer. Remember, some days ago, self acclaimed cricket pundits were asking for Sachin’s retirement citing his age. Probably, they had forgotten that GOD has no age. The eagerness to perform at the age of 36 is quite an example for the young cricketers. The fitness level he possesses at this age is enviable for many. Why only cricketers, his achievements are source of encouragement in the real life too. That’s why; we common Indians love him so much. That’s why; his record overshadowed the Railway Budget-2010, 5 topics related to him were among the top 9 trending topics of Twitter, Diwali was celebrated across the country. Everyone in the country was following Sachinsm.
Sachin is someone the cricketers idolize. Viv Richards has described him as the 99.5% perfect batsman. Bradman had seen himself in Sachin. Shane Warne’s story of nightmares is well-known. Probably there is no prominent cricketer left who have not praised this master of cricket. We as Indians must be happy that we have such successful man in our country. We should celebrate his success with ultimate respect for him. And by the ultimate level, I mean Bharat Ratna. It is really shameful that we cannot find someone deserving in this billion plus population for the Bharat Ratna. This becomes more shameful when we have persons like Sachin with us. While this blog is being written, demands for Bharat Ratna for Sachin has been raised by Kapil Dev and Ajit Wadekar. The Shiv Sena has also demanded Ratna for the Ratna of Maharashtra.
It’s time we commoners raise the pitch of our voice to bestow the highest award the Bharat Ratna on Sachin Tendulkar. Bharat Ratna is for those Indians who make India proud. Sachin for last 20 years doing the same quite well, hence highly qualified for the award. Last time someone received Bharat Ratna was Pt. Bhimsen Joshi in 2008. Before that Lata Mangeshkar received it in 2001. So, it’s the perfect time to give the award to the most deserving Indian of our times, Sachin Tendulkar.

    Read this to understand Sachin’s impact in India, and whosoever has a doubt, decide for youself:

    ‘An incident reported by peter roebuck:
    “On a train from Shimla to Delhi, there was a halt in one of the stations. The train stopped by for few minutes as usual. Sachin was nearing century, batting on 98. The passengers, railway officials, everyone on the train waited for Sachin to complete the century. This Genius can stop time in India!!”‘

    Now let’s come to the point of BR, Gem of India
    We always try to learn by our past, if we make a mistake, then we take a lesson from it, we donot want to repeat it as some people are giving Lata example.
    Now being in present over Sachin issue…
    I think Sachin is the most overrated cricketer,
    I won’t go to Bradman time but give an example from present: Kallis
    Check the stat and think open mindedly, as most of the Sachin fan fail to do so.
    {you may be watching notout, but notout just means thay could have batted there if overs were remaining and the batsman are taking more risks in the slog overs}
    I am making this statement because people keep on saying Dhoni is the most luckiest and to remind them the history keeps adding his act an evidence to the fact: LUCK FAVORS THE WARRIOR…

    Despite 99 centuries, he has served the nation with an average not par with his no. of centuries…
    If he have played for 10-12 years and there after he would have started training youngs then India could have been in a better position. Gandhi and others people were great not because they only themself followed the best path but inspired people to choose the right path.
    He has never a 300 in test and Lara has a 400 so what…(About Sachin 200)

    Now contribution to society:
    In his time of reigm before Dhoni arrival, India have an average performance losing world cup to Asia cup giving a frustration to crowd.
    Ofcourse he contributed, but not as a leader…
    I think Dhoni has given the society more to cheerabout in four year than Sachin 20 years…
    And take my words if Sachin didnot get BR in 1 or 2 years then Dhoni will be more eligible in next 5 years…

    I may be sarcastic, and will feel happy if you please point it out
