Bharat Ratna for Sachin Tendulkar

Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar's name has been recommended for Bharat Ratna by the Prime Minister's Office.
However, sources also add that there is some reservation on conferring Bharat Ratna on Tendulkar as he is considered too young for the highest civilian award of the country.
Those opposing his name also say that as the maestro received Padma Vibhushan just two years back and it may be too early for a Bharat Ratna.
At a function in Mumbai the batting maestro stayed away from the issue, saying Bharat Ratna is the dream of every Indian.
Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni backed the chorus for awarding Bharat Ratna to Tendulkar.
VVS Laxman may awarded the Padma Shree.
