Hyderabad:It was a dream-come-true for the two teenagers, suffering from life-threatening illnesses, when they met their hero Sachin Tendulkar, who spent some time with them pepping up their spirits.

Thanks to the initiative taken by an NGO 'Make-a-Wish Foundation of India', Sagar and Ravi, the two teenagers suffering from genetic disorders, had their wishes realised when they were taken to the Taj Krishna hotel in Hyderabad for a memorable meeting with the batting maestro.

Tendulkar, who is in Hyderabad to attend the wedding reception of teammate V V S Laxman, spent about 30 minutes with the two boys, bringing broad smiles on their faces.

"The volunteers of the Hyderabad division of the Make-a-Wish Foundation of India helped to make the wishes of these two teenagers a reality. Sachin spent quality time with them, turning those moments into most memorable ones, thus making a deep difference in their young lives," a release fromthe Foundation said.
