An open letter to Bharat Ratna Sachin Tendulkar
Dear Sachin, you are a living legend! Like millions of Indians, I am a huge fan of yours. Pay you obeisance for being a motivational force for millions of Indians like me. Your feats are unparalleled.

The fact that I have mentioned you as one of the inspirational figures in my life in my dream book dedicated to the victims of gender discrimination, "Gender Discrimination: An Indian Perspective", endorses my respect for you. However, the writer in me who believes in ethical journalism is shaking my conscience since the last couple of months!!! Why?

I must tell the truth to the world, who worship you like an incarnation of god as a cricketer! Your conduct as a parliamentarian has really let me down and millions of your followers. This is the nation wherein cricket is considered as a religion and you are on a pedestal where not many freedom fighters, social activist, patriots, scientists can imagine to reach.

It's the people of this nation, who took you to that level, the larger than life stature. Why should I deny the fact that you truly deserve that pedestal, respect!

Many Indians worship you like god? Why not! Your achievements on the 22 yard pitch are insurmountable! You will keep on inspiring generations!

Dear Sachin Tendulkar, as a parliamentarian your contribution is appalling! Why did you accept the proposal to enter the Parliament as an MP, if you can't justify your worth! Are you conducting like many other parliamentarians, who make tall promises, deliver lengthy lectures but hardly practice what they preach?

As per the government guidelines for the MPLAD (Member of Parliament Local Area Development) fund, each member is entitled to carry out development worth Rs. 5 crore every year. Records indicate dismal picture about you. Really shameful! You haven't spent even a single rupee from the Rs. 10 crore lying, rusting in your MPLAD account.

Sachin, are you so occupied, you don't have time! I will never buy this argument! For endorsements, advertisements, you have ample time! You have really disappointed a blind fan like me and millions of other Indians with your conduct?

No need in wasting nation's assets. It's really embarrassing the temple of democracy is not driving you to make a difference in the lives of underprivileged Indians. That too when you don't have to shell out any money from your pocket. If you can't spend money allocated to you by the government of India, Bharat Ratna Sachin you are not fit for holding the post of parliamentarian.

I am writing this letter with deep pain, agony, bleeding heart! If you can't deliver as a parliamentarian, put down your paper.


Your fan,

Rajiv Azad
