Sachin Tendulkar wishes kids on the occasion of Children's Day

India cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar brought in Children's Day by tweeting his best wishes to school children from the 'Make-A-Wish-Foundation'.

Tendulkar, who retired from all forms of cricket three years ago, said that there was no 'better feeling' than bringing a smile on the faces of young children.

"No better feeling than to be bowled out by their smiles. #HappyChildrensDay to my little friends! @MakeAWishIndia," said Tendulkar on Twitter. He also posted some images from the MIG cricket club, playing with the children.

This small gesture from Tendulkar would have surely made the school kids extremely happy.

Earlier in the year, the legendary Mumbaikar celebrated his 43rd birthday with a cake cutting ceremony that was attended by students from the 'Make-A-Wish-Foundation'. This week, Sachin will be ushering in three years of retirement from all forms of cricket. His last match was on 16 November, 2013 in Mumbai against West Indies.

Tendulkar also extended his best wishes to former Australia wicket keeper and batsman Adam Gilchrist on Twitter. Gilchrist turned 45 on Monday and received a lot of birthday wishes on the microblogging website. Tendulkar wrote, "One of the best men to have ever stood behind a wicket, @gilly381! A very Happy Birthday to you mate! I hope you catch all the good times!"
