Sachin Tendulkar’s little home

leave a comment »

No one ever accused Sachin Tendulkar of giving money when he could avoid it. Not even a fine, as Rediff tells us

Mayor Shraddha Jadhav (Shiv Sena) had said that there cannot be exceptions to the rule, but textiles minister Mohammed Arif Naseem Khan, who is the guardian minister for Mumbai suburbs, said he spoke to Kumar this afternoon in this regard.

“Sachin is an icon who has brought international laurels to the country. Subodh Kumar told me that he would examine the issue and act accordingly,” Naseem Khan said.

The minister said Sachin has complied with formalities for getting the OC.

“Normally, one moves into a house after getting the OC. Here, he has submitted documents for the OC, but shifted into the new house without getting the certificate, which according to corporation officials attracts penalty. He should be exempted from penalty as a special case,” the minister said.

Meanwhile, sources in the Congress said that Sachin’s closeness to MNS chief Raj Thackeray might have earned him Shiv Sena’s wrath, and this might have led to the decision to levy penalty, which is believed to be Rs 4.75 lakh.

So what did god have to say? NDTV has the answer:

The Master Blaster said that moving into the new house was an emotional moment for him. “Everyone has a dream of owning a house. I, too, had this dream. I am happy that I was able to fulfil it. The flat where I earlier used to live, I had received it under the sports quota. I have now vacated that place, so that some other sportsman can live there,” he told reporters outside his villa in Mumbai on Wednesday.

The batting maestro’s new home has been reconstructed on a plot that earlier housed a dilapidated bungalow, which Sachin had bought for Rs. 39 crore in 2007.

Everyman’s dream!
