The great Sachin Tendulkar bid adieu to international cricket after the Mumbai test. Having had a bright career of 24 years, the legend had become synonymous with Indian cricket. Within hours of his retirement, the Indian government has conferred upon him the highest civilian honor, the Bharat Ratna. With this the Master Blaster became the first sportsperson and the youngest ever Indian to be awarded the country’s highest civilian honour.
The whole nation was in tears when the cricketing legend said goodbye to cricket. But today everyone is happy as the government has decided to confer him with the Bharat Ratna. The Bollywood has expressly come forward to support and celebrities have expressed happiness on the good news.
