If things go according to plan, cricketing icon Sachin Tendulkar may soon be involved in a big way in promotion of sports in schools and higher education system. Expressing his desire to work closely with the government to integrate sports into the education system, Tendulkar wrote a letter to the HRD ministry which has welcomed his offer.
Responding positively to his initiative, HRD minister Kapil Sibal has invited him to make a presentation before the ministry. ‘We welcome Sachin Tendulkar‘s proposal and I have already written to him inviting him for a presentation. The ministry does not decide on the curriculum, it’s either NCERT or CBSE. After we receive the presentation, we will send it to NCERT and CBSE and see how to take it forward,’ he said.
Tendulkar is expected to make a detailed presentation following which his suggestion on integration of sports with education would be looked into by NCERT and CBSE, a ministry official said.
Tendulkar had stressed on honing the potential of the younger generation and nurturing their talent as he felt that sports is being neglected in educational institutions.
