Looks like there is no stopping for Sachin Tendulkar. Post the announcement of the Bharat Ratna, the Government of India has decided to felicitate Sachin Tendulkar with lifelong supply of onions.
Sachin became teary eyed on receiving the news. “This means more to me than any other award. To have received such a big honour… I’m speechless.”
Anjali, Sachin’s wife seemed overjoyed with the news. “Sachin loves kanda-bhajia! I won’t have to worry about onions again. Receiving onions throughout our lives – our children’s future is also secured!”
“It was a unanimous decision from the party”, said a Congress spokesperson. “The Prime Minister himself gave the idea of awarding onions to Tendulkar. They were the first words from his mouth this month – how could we not go ahead with it.”
General secretary of Congress, Digvijay Singh said, “Sonia Gandhi cried during Tendulkar’s speech”. However, a source informed Faking News that she happened to have been peeling onions at the time. That’s when the idea struck her.
Not to be left behind in the hog race, Bihar CM Nitish Kumar is planning lifelong supply of salt to the legend.
