Mumbai: India`s favourite son, Sachin Tendulkar began his 41st birthday celebration by exercising his voting rights on Thursday. The batting icon tweeted a photograph of himself flaunting his inked finger, and urged fellow Indians to vote.
Earlier, the legend appealed to all Indians to exercise their franchise in the ongoing Lok Sabha polls. In a post on his official Facebook page, Tendulkar – now a nominated Rajya Sabha member – urged his countrymen not to "underestimate" the power of their vote.
I have voted, have you? A wonderful start to my birthday, as a responsible citizen of our great nation. pic.twitter.com/RXAtisMwqq

"Every run counts in the game of cricket and every vote counts in an election. Don`t underestimate the power of your vote."
"Hope you play your part - Please cast your vote," the batting genius added.
