Sachin Tendulkar on Friday took the blessings of his childhood coach Ramakant Achrekar on the occasion of Guru Purnima.
The legendary batsman tweeted a picture where he bows down to his coach as a mark of unwavering respect.
"Sought blessings of my Guru on this auspicious day – A happy #GuruPurnima to all," he wrote on his Twitter feed having seven million plus followers.
Tendulkar makes it a point to wish the 83-year-old on this auspicious day every year, even when he is travelling.
