Hand wash is secret of our energy: srt

| | New Delhi

The God of Indian cricket Sachin Tendulkar for once decided to take the limelight away from the sport and instead concentrated on promoting hand washing as he feels this will help everyone lead a healthy life.

Participating in International Cricket Council’s (ICC) launch of cricket for good and Team Swachh campaign, in association with UNICEF and BCCI, Sachin feels through cricket importance of hand washing can be spread.

Even though the little master said through the upcoming T20 World Cup in India the significance of the campaign can be promoted, Tendulkar’s majority of the speech was primarily focused on the importance of washing hands properly.

“With T20 World Cup [taking place in India], this is the perfect platform to spread the message to India and beyond,” started the swashbuckling opener.

“I feel the mother in any family is backbone as she takes every precaution to protect her child. But there are families due to lack of knowledge and awareness, our message has not reached them. They are unknowingly harming their children because of not washing their hands,” said Tendulkar, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.

He feels that sometimes mothers themselves feed their children without washing their hands and unintentionally affecting their own child.

“It becomes our responsibility to spread the message across, to give proper knowledge to them, to make them understand the importance of washing hands with soap,” said the legendary batsman who has 100 international centuries to his name.

The Mumbaikar feels that spreading this message through school children will also help it to be carried to the next generation. So he said that this is a match which he does not want to lose and in order to succeed he needs a team effort.

The batting legend might have definitely lightened the lives of the young children who were as part of the programme as well as his numerous young fans all over the world.

But the superstar would have definitely let down the cricket fans all over the globe for not offering his insight into the sport.

Also not mentioning a single word on the current Indian team in the aftermath of the 3-0 thrashing of Australia in the tour down under, would have been a big disappointment.
