India Today to honour Sachin with Salaam Sachin Conclave

As Sachin Tendulkar readies to retire after his 200th test, the India Today Group is planning an extraordinary farewell to the Master Blaster, called Salaam Sachin Conclave. The Conclave is scheduled to take place in Mumbai on November 12, 2013.

Salaam Sachin Conclave will witness sessions featuring noted sports personalities ranging from people such as Sunil Gavaskar, Ajit Wadekar and Anshuman Gaekwad, as well as his fierce rival Waqar Younis and close friends Brian Lara and Sourav Ganguly.

Expressing his thoughts on the Salaam Sachin Conclave, Aroon Purie, Chairman & Editor-in-Chief, India Today Group said, “The life of a legend cannot be better captured but by those who’ve shared rare moments with him. India’s imagination has been dominated for over 24 years by the finest batsman the world’s ever seen. From his younger days and to the ultimate match of a brilliant career – he stood for Indian hope and pride. Salaam Sachin should be and will be a fitting salute to the all time greatest ambassador of the game.”

Ashish Bagga, Group CEO, India Today Group added here, “As the man at the centre of India’s biggest passion signs out, it is important to express our gratitude to the legend. It has been an honour for many like us to watch him play and a few of us have also had the opportunity of interacting with him. With Salaam Sachin, we bring the world of Sachin fans closer to the Sachin they haven’t seen and the Sachin they are going to miss.”

The Conclave will include various sessions on Tendulkar’s life, his journey, his childhood, his achievements and his family. The high point will be Brian Lara sharing his opinion on Lara Vs Sachin.

Apart from the world of sports, the Conclave will also see actor Abhishek Bachchan talk about Tendulkar being a hero for every Indian. Tendulkar’s brother, Ajit Tendulkar, will share an account of how he encouraged him to play cricket and how he dealt with his most painful moments in life. A special session will also see prominent names from corporate India talking on how Tendulkar has been the biggest brand in Indian sporting history.

The Conclave will also feature an exhibition of rare Sachin memorabilia by well-known British memorabilia expert Hamilton Bland.

The high points of the session will be telecast live on Aaj Tak and Headlines Today, along with over 25 hours of programming churned out of the Conclave over the weeks.
