Sachin Tendulkar’s decision to go to the aid of a kite that flew into the balcony of his house on a hot summer day is earning him praise across the internet.
When he saw that the bird was injured and not able to fly, he took it upon himself to provide it with some relief. In a video (above), shot by someone at his residence and then edited into a film before being shared on his Facebook page, Tendulkar can be seen slowly walking towards the bird to offer it both bread and pieces of chicken and wondering what it would prefer to eat.
He then enlisted the help of experts from Mumbai-based NGO – Spreading Awareness on Reptiles and Rehabilitation Programme (SARRP). The experts from the organisation visited the sports star’s Bandra home and told him that the juvenile black kite was dehydrated and that it would be able to fly again after 5-10 days of recovery.
