A Big Farce: Honrary Rank of Group Captain for Tendulkar
I feel constrained to bring out what many may feel is an inconsequential point, but has great significance. This refers to the conferring of a Honorary rank of Group captain on Sachin Tendulkar by the Indian Air Force when Air Chief Marshal Naik was the Chief of Air Staff. In the case of the Air Force an honorary rank is awarded to a man or individual who has done something for Aviation and has furthered the image of the Air Force to the youth as a role model.
