Bhubaneswar: As master blaster Sachin Tendulkar bid adieu to the international cricket, famous sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik crafted a sculpture in Odisha to pay him a tribute.
Pattnaik created a cricket bat with a face of Sachin with a message, `Never Say Good Bye` at the week-long annual trade fair that commenced Sunday at Cuttack, 26 km from the state capital Bhubaneswar.
The trade fair is being organised to mark the state`s rich maritime tradition.
"I am a great fan of the master blaster. I congratulate him for being awarded the Bharat Ratna. Sachin is the god of cricket. I have created many sand sculptures on him in the past," Pattnaik said.
