Felicitations, anyone?

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation wants to felicitate Sachin Tendulkar on his 35th century. The problem?
There are reasons behind this fear. In the recent past, there were proposals to felicitate eminent personalities like Tendulkar (when he notched 10,000 runs), Bharat Ratna Lata Mangeshkar, Indian idol Abhijeet Sawant (who happened to be son of a civic employee), the late astronaut Kalpana Chawla, former Lok Sabha Speaker Manohar Joshi, the Oscar-nominated Marathi movie Shwaas team, and many others.After the announcements were made, the celebrities waited patiently for the elusive felicitation. Civic sources said that there had been no follow-up and the proposals got eventually dumped.
