This trio, after having reached the very top of their respective professions, continue to remain humble and modest.
Not only have their achievements been staggering, their conduct in the public domain has been nothing short of impeccable.
Tendulkar and Mangeshkar have been recipients of the Bharat Ratna - highest civilian award of the Republic of India.
