SACHIN GOT BHARAT RATNA,BUT DHYAN CHAND DESERVED IT FIRST.
We agree with Mr.Milkha Singh,the pride of India that "Sachin got Bharat Ratna
but Dhyan Chand deserved it first". Dhyan Chand the wizard of Indian Hockey
deserved it most. Afterall, the cricket is not a Olympic game and played by
about 10 countries only of which Bangladesh is a new entrant.Further, there is
no qualification/elimination rounds like in football & Hockey for the world cup.
When the Sports Ministry had recommended Dhyan Chand's name for
Bharat Ratna, the country wants to know who turned down the recommendation.
Further,we understand that more than 100 MP's have recommended Bharat Ratna
to Dhyan Chand .There seemed to be a hurry in giving Bharat Ratna to Sachin.
This is not to undermine the performance of Sachin Tendulkar who is undoubtedly
a great cricketer,but Dhyan Chand is senior , a doyen in Indian Hockey who
should have been the first to get Bharat Ratna amongst the sports persons.
