Sathya Sai Baba’s passed away and the news has filled the devotees with heartache. The news was also fed in the ears of Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar. After hearing the news, Sachin burst out and cried like a child while paying obligingness to Sai Baba at Sai Kulwant Hall. Without wasting more time, Sachin flew to catch the last glance of Sai Baba with wife Anjali. Sachin kept sitting close to the glass coffin in which Baba’s body was kept.
Often, Sachin used to visit Prashanti Niliyam Ashram to get blessings from Sai Baba. Sachin along with V V S Laxman, Rahul Dravid and other cricketers were present in Kulwant Hall to wish Sai Baba. A source said that Sai Baba personally liked Sachin a lot and he always used to say that Sachin would be world’s greatest cricketer.
Apart from Sachin Tendulkar, another cricketer Sunil Gavaskar expressed his feelings for Baba ji saying that Sai Baba ji has left us physically only but his soul will always remain alive and his teachings will always remain in our hearts. Sunil Gavaskar had been a disciple of Baba ji before Sachin came in contact with Sai Baba.
When 1-day international between India XI and world XI held at Hill View stadium in Puttaparthi for Sri Sathya Sai unity cup, Sachin get in touch with Baba ji. Other cricketers like Sreesanth and V V S Laxman also visited Ashram on Monday.
