Social media was flooded yesterday with celebrities posting photos of their dads to mark Father's Day. One photo stood out. Cricketer Sachin Tendulkar uploaded an incredibly adorable photo of himself as a baby on his Twitter page with the message "The person I always looked up to and wanted to be like. #HappyFathersDay."
Revered and loved across India, the now-retired master batsman is being hoisted up by his father, Ramesh Tendulkar, a renowned Marathi novelist, in the black and white photo that has now been retweeted over a 1000 times and liked more than 7000 times.
Here, take a look.
Understandably, people were a little carried away. And when we say 'a little', we mean a lot.
