Sachin Tendulkar is taking his role as MP seriously enough to dash off a letter to HRD Minister Kapil Sibal on reviving India's sporting culture.

Four months into his tenure as MP, Tendulkar has suggested a blueprint to integrate sports into the national educational curriculum rather than being a mere extra-curricular activity.

Sibal said that he has written back to Sachin asking him to visit the Ministry and make a personal presentation.

The Minister also said that he will ask CBSE and NCERT to look into the matter after his meeting with Tendulkar.
