Indian singing legend, Lata Mangeshkar has proudly stated that, she is really grateful to have a son like Sachin Tendulkar. She has also wished him the very best in his life, especially after he scored his 50 test century, and says that he should continue playing the game impressively for many more years ahead.
She acclaimed that Sachin has always treated her as a mother and even called her ‘aai’ in Marathi which means mother. Mangeshkar said that her father Dinanath Mangeshkar’s death anniversary falls on the birthday of Sachin, and she has never met him on that occasion. When Sachin called Mrs. Lata his mother she was quite happy and emotional about it.
Lata Mangeshkar is a singing legend and has been awarded the Bharat Ratna, and many people who know Sachin closely, too feel that he should be awarded with the same award, even Lata Mangeshkar feels so. Mangeshkar also added that for her the real Bharat Ratna is Sachin himself, as there can be only one person who is so special in this form of sport and there will be none like him.
