Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar, a veteran cricketer of the Indian cricket team, is now doing something that is worth an applaud. Sachin has adopted a village in Maharashtra recently. He also visited the village for the first time on December 19.
Sachin adopted the village of Donja in Marathwada, on December 19th this year. This village falls under the Parliament Adarsh Gram Yojna. Donja is the second village after Puthumaraju Kandriga village of Andhra Pradesh that Tendulkar has adopted under this development scheme.
According to Tendulkar’s spokesperson, the cricketer has promised to give Rs 4 crore to the Development Program fund for development of the village infrastructure. Keeping in mind the problem of water, Sachin has announced the building of a water tank and laying of pipelines to provide potable water in the village.
When he reached Donja, he first visited the council school and spent some time with the children. He spoke to them and also played cricket with them on the ground. Later he posted a picture on social media where he is seen surrounded by kids from this village.
Sachin is worshipped as the God of cricket in India and he lives by this stature by doing good work for his fans and people who are needy. He has also been appreciated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi many times for his work.
Tendulkar who is a Bharat Ratna and Padma Vibhushan recipient is usually seen talking about important things. We recently told you about how Sachin stopped his car in the middle of a traffic signal and informed people about wearing helmets while sitting at the back of a two-wheeler.
