Sachin Tendulkar, the former legendary batsman will turn 47 on April 24. It is going to be a special day for Master Blaster. But he has decided not to celebrate his birthday as a mark of respect to the COVID-19 warriors, who are leading the fight against the pandemic.

Coronavirus outbreak has left a big question mark on human life due to which every individual is finding it hard to cope up under alarming conditions. Everything from business to sports has come down to a tragic halt. In the meantime, the Corona warriors including doctors are giving their best to deal with the positive cases of virus across the globe.

These people have put their lives at stake and they are directly dealing with the people, who are showing symptoms of getting infected with COVID-19. A small mistake or negligence can prove dangerous and hazardous for them. At the moment, they are working day-in and day-out to take care of the situation.

So, as a mark of respect to all the Corona warriors, Sachin Tendulkar has decided not to celebrate his 47th birthday. A source revealed that Sachin Tendulkar feels it is not the perfect time for celebration. He also added that according to the Master Blaster, it is the appropriate way to show respect to all the doctors, nurses, paramedics, policemen, defence personnel, who are giving their best to protect the people from the novel virus.

The source also recited the fact that the 46-year-old is uncomfortable to openly speak about it. “Sachin has decided that this is not the time for celebrations. He feels that this is the best tribute he can pay to all the doctors, nurses, paramedics, policemen, defence personnel, who are at the frontline. He has always been very uncomfortable talking about this aspect,” a source said as quoted by India TV.

Recently Sachin Tendulkar had donated a total sum of INR 50 lakhs (25 Lakhs to Prime Minister’s Relief Fund + 25 lakhs to Chief Minister’s Relief Fund) in his bid to support India’s fight against Coronavirus that has taken more than 1 Lakh lives across the globe.
