Cricket legend and Unicef ambassador Sachin Tendulkar yesterday said parents in India must treat a girl child at par with the boys. "It's all about bonding with your children, loving them, hugging them. The first 1000 days (in raising a child) are very crucial. It is our responsibility to treat both (boys and girls) equally," said Tendulkar on the occasion of World Children's Day. At the event, Tendulkar also played cricket with a group of specially abled children. He conceded that the current generation is much smarter than children of his time.

"Today's generation is confident. You see actually a three-year-old kid sitting in front of the computer comfortably. He knows exactly what to do. He knows how to use a mobile phone whether it is calling or texting. All these fancy gadgets give them new perspective," said Tendulkar, who posted the above picture on Twitter with daughter Sara and son Arjun when they were little babies. "They grow up so fast, but they will always be our babies. Happy #WorldChildrensDay to my beautiful kids, Sara and Arjun," he wrote alongside the picture.
