Again I am not supporting Sachin's selection for Bharat Ratna.
But Khel Ratna is a sports award while Bharat Ratna is a civilian honour.
Dadasaheb Phalke Award (for cinema) would be the equivalent of Khel Ratna I guess.

The holders of the Bharat Ratna rank 7th in the Indian order of precedence; however they do not carry any special title nor any other honorifics.
The above does not apply to Khel Ratna holders. So, there is a difference...
Basically Bharat ratna, Padma Vibhushan, Padma Bhushan & Padma Shree would be the civilian awards in the order of precedence.
Khel Ratna is a "sportsman" award. And is treated as not on this precedence list.

Someone ^above said Dravid himself used to praise Sachin.
That merrely shows the down to earth nature of Dravid. Has Sachin ever praised anybody?(Including Bradman and Gavaskar)

Bharat ratna holders & their family members get lifetime "Y" grade security round the clock plus they treated as state guests as per protocol whenever they visit another state.
So they carry huge perks and benefits apart from the title itself

Just get a feeling that it was a deal between tendulkar and BCCI.And the deal might be his retirement in the BCCI's hand while bharat ratna in tendulkar's hand.BCCI has enough to pay this bloody corrupt govt.

Im sorry if this has been posted here before .. If not then check it out .. Does Sachin really require all these facilities ?? The saying in our country that the rich get richer and poor get poorer really holds true .. This chap has 1000s of crores and see the facilities he gets now ..

Well it was worthy when given to Bhimsen Joshi, Gangubai Hangal, CNR Rao, Abdul Kalam.
The first two, being legendary never made any money. I was watching about them today on TV. Bhimsen was so good, that he was ready to give a concert in any function at anyones home for a small cash, which served his expenditures.

A Motion was laid in the House of Commons in the United Kingdom congratulating batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar on his "magnificent" career and for being an able ambassador of the game.

The Early Day Motion, moved by Indian-origin MP Keith Vaz, said Tendulkar served as an inspiration for millions around the world and recognised his "selfless dedication" to the sport.

"This motion is a fitting tribute to such an exceptional batsman. Tendulkar is adored almost as much in the UK as he is in India so it is only right that Parliament pays tribute to him," Rt Hon Keith Vaz MP said.

There was no debate on early day motion.
British Lok Sabha MPs dont care if Sachin made millions in his career :)
Or did Sachin bribed them or promised to campaign for them :D
