The Cricket God Sachin Tendulkar was at the capital city of ‘God’s Own Country’ Kerala to promote his team Kerala Blasters.Tendulkar was present to invite the Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan for the inaugural ISL match between Kerala Blasters and Atletico Kolkatta at Kochi on November 17.
Tendulkar had a word of advice to a woman riding pillion on a motorcycle. He asks the riders as well as the pillion riders to wear helmets for complete safety.He posted the video on Instagram and wrote “Rider or pillion, both lives matter equally. Please, please make wearing helmets a habit. Just my opinion #HelmetDaalo#RoadSafety”.
In the video,we can see that he is urging two motorists who’s pillion rider were travelling without helmet and asked them wear one. “Wear helmet at the back also! Why should only the rider be wearing a helmet? The two women I spotted, both of them not wearing (a) helmet! Doesn’t make any sense to me. Please wear helmet whenever you get on a bike,” he said. He went on to add, “If he (rider) can get injured, you (pillion) can also get injured.
Sachin has done this before on the streets stopping and asking motorcyclist to wear a helmet and be careful of road safety. In that video he was asking two boys are trying to take a selfie with Tendulkar but he in turn says “Promise me one thing, next time you will use a helmet. It is dangerous for you like this. Life is precious. Is that a promise? 100 percent?”
