Sachin Tendulkar masks dazzle as 2,000 students bid adieu in style
Kozhikode: Paying glowing tribute in their own way to master blaster Sachin Tendulkar who is retiring from cricket, around 2,000 students of a school in Palakkad district of Kerala donned Tendulkar masks during the one-hour long assembly.
The ground at the BSS Gurukulam Higher Secondary at Alathur virtually turned into 'faces' of Tendulkar as the students, teachers and non-teaching staff turned up with the masks yesterday to record their appreciation for the batting legend.
A flag, which had the photograph of Tendulkar drawn by the students with a message 'we love, we respect, we salute you Sachin' written on it, was hoisted on the occassion.
A song penned by three students -- Nithil, Akhil and Irshad -- 'Goodbye Master Blaster. In Our deep heart, Sachin You will be with us all day.....' was sung, accompanied by orchestra during the assembly.
"This is our respect to the great player who had brought laurels to the country," said school Principal Vijayan V Anand.
Tendulkar has announced he would retire after playing his 200th Test in Mumbai.
