On Oct 8, 2014 Bharat Ratna' Tendulkar, the first sportsperson to be given an honorary rank in the IAF, attended the Air Force Day parade in Hindon in Uttar Pradesh, outside Delhi, this morning and later was at the 'At Home' organised by Air Chief Arup Raha at his residence.
He is the first personality with no aviation background to receive the honour. The rank was conferred on Tendulkar under the provision of granting honorary rank by armed forces to eminent personalities acknowledging their contribution towards the nation.
