Sachin Tendulkar : Adopts A Village In Andhra

Is this the start of Sachin’s second innings? Absolutely. What a news from India’s favourite cricketer. Sachin, an inspiration for millions of people has given another opportunity for us to be inspired.

Sachin adopted a village Puttamraju Kandriga, a Nellore village in South Andhra. He is aspiring it to make it into a model village. The village development is estimated at Rs. 5.79 crore, of which Sachin is contributing Rs. 2.79 crore. Adopting a village for Sachin was a way of thanking people and giving back to them. As per the directive of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana, Sachin adopted Puttamraju Kandriga of south Andhra with a population of over 5,000 people.

Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana is a  rural development and cleanliness programme for social and cultural development. Prime Minister Narendra Modi set this project. He stated, “If we have to build the nation we have to start from the villages” and he believes “If every MP transforms villages in his/her constituency into model villages, large number of villages in the country would have seen holistic development.” 

As per the agenda of this project Sachin laid a foundation stone for the development of this village. He interacted with the people of this village and made them take an oath on the development of their village. He spread the awareness of a well-furnished community centre, underground drainage, playground, cleanliness and stressed on the equality of gender. He asked people to treat their sons and daughters alike and insisted people to educate their children.

Does it sound like an amazing comeback or let’s say an amazing start for his second innings?

How we wish famous celebrities took responsibilities like this for the development of India. Wouldn’t India flourish within a few years.

Let the celebrities take up new responsibilities and never to forget we are equally important to stand up to our responsibilities towards India.

  1. Very good article. Sachin has set an example for other celebrities to follow.

    He is very humble and true Indian.

  2. Truly inspiring ! Just hope he will keep tabs on the development of it unlike other celebrities who adopt villages but then leave the rest to their managerial staff … so do little else except funding! agreed, funds are important but proper usage is MORE important…. But knowing the Sachin we know he is DIFFERENT 🙂
    And yes, Nice article Vinay ! 🙂

    1. That’s true Kokila, proper usage of money is very important. Hope it doesn’t run into waste this time. It’s Sachin who has adopted and people have high expectations from him and I have a good feeling that he would do justice to his role 🙂

We would love to hear your point of view
