Don’t miss: Amitabh Bachchan’s marvelous speech in Sachin Tendulkar's honour
Glowing tributes have poured in for Sachin Tendulkar following his retirement from cricket, but Amitabh Bachchan’s speech for the batting genius ranks as one of the most moving.

Top Bollywood stars Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai, Aamir Khan and cricketers MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Sourav Ganguly attended Sachin Tendulkar's dinner party held at Waterstones Club in Mumbai, on Monday, November 18. The party was hosted by Sachin to celebrate his Bharat Ratna win.

The event saw the celebs and cricketers giving moving speeches extolling Sachin.

Amitabh Bachchan’s speech was one of the best.

Here’s what Big B said: Congratulations Sachin, first for this great honour of the Bharat Ratna -- there could not have been a more fitting occasion to decorate you with this highest civilian honour.

Mention the name Sachin Tendulkar in any part of the country, or in the cricketing world, and an immediate smile or a gasp in awe erupts. That to me is the quality of his presence in our lives.

Question the condition of a match in progress where India is playing and the first thing you ask is … 'Sachin khel raha hai' … 'bat karne aaya' … 'kitne run banaye' The situation of the game is secondary.

The news of his retirement stopped many a heart beats including mine. It was as though a portion of our system was leaving us for good. Many admirers and masters of the game, must have felt the same. Some perhaps, with due respect, breathing a sigh of relief, because they would not have to face his brilliance as an adversary.

I am not qualified technically or professionally to comment on his style and craft as far as the game is concerned, but when I am asked to think back on him, there is just one thought that comes across " where was I and what was I doing at the age of 16 ! And I do not need to think any further. At an age when we struggling how to button up our trousers, he was facing some of the fiercest bowling attacks ever seen, and coming out victorious!

Epithets like 'legend' and 'icon' are not enough to describe his glory. Fresh words shall have to be introduced in dictionaries to describe his worth.

History shall change its chapters with time … but time and history shall never be able to change what Sachin has meant to all of us.

Thank you Sachin for making us proud to be an Indian!!
