So the newspapers & every alternate channel are debating on whether Sachin Tendulkar should be given the prestigious "Bharat Ratna". The facet that caught my attention here was that - the row was not whether he deserved it or not (everyone seemed to agree he deserved), but "whether he was of the correct age" to be bestowed the honour! Ironic huh?
So while our media, aam junta and the so-called torch bearers squabbled unreasonably on the topic, our man himself in all humility declared that he didnt care much for the award! His prize lay in the undying ardor his fans had and his zeal for the game. Such is the sad state of Indian sports.
To conclude then: please keep the Bharat Ratna above politics.
