"During the last 24 years, since the young age of 16 years, Shri Tendulkar has played cricket across the world and won laurels for our country. He has been a true ambassador of India in the world of sports.

His achievements in cricket are unparalleled, the records set by him unmatched, and the spirit of sportsmanship displayed by him exemplary. That he has been honoured with several awards is testimony to his extraordinary brilliance as a sportsman.

Sachin is an exceptional player but there are/were several exceptional achievers and performers also. Who have done a lot for are country so they also deserve to get Bharat Ratna. I would like to tell an incident .Few years back Sachin Tendulkar made a statement that he is an actor by profession and plays cricket only as a hobby. He also endorses advertisements related to health/economy . I think one should have more grit to deserve an award of this stature & especially when award is given on the basis sports we should not forget others sports persons too.

Indian Government has decided to give the country's highest civilian award, Bharat Ratna, to cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar.It has again raised the debate that if this can be awarded to Sachin Tendulkar then why not to Dhyan Chand.

Sachin will be the first sportsperson to get this award after the rules got changed..he is also the youngest person to get this.He is the legend of the Indian cricket.But the real question is that if Sachin has given the identity to the Cricket, so Dhyan Chand gave the same identity to hockey.He was the maestro in his game, so he should be the first sportsperson to receive this award.

Pradeep Jain, MoS for Rural Development, is of the view that Dhyan Chand`s contributions should not be ignored.Jain believes though Dhyan Chand died 34 years ago, his legacy still continues.

In past also numerous demands have been made to confer the honour on the hockey legend. Letters were also written, some even signed as many as 81 MPs, including Congress leaders like CP Joshi, Shashi Tharoor, Beni Prasad Verma, Bharat, Sanjay Nirupam and Meenakshi Natrajan.Many got happy after this announcement and it also disappointed many, now those supporting Dhyan Chand say he should now be conferred with the award immediately.

Even I am in support of it..whats your take on it...Share with us.
