The Master Blaster’s Carnama
SACHIN TENDULKAR took his passion for cars to the next level by assembling a BMW engine and transmission along with the students of the College of Engineering of Anna University in Chennai recently. The occasion was the launch of a technical skilling initiative called ‘Skill Next’ at the BMW Group Plant Chennai. Skill Next aims to present an opportunity for engineering and technical students to get hands-on training on advanced technologies of BMW engine and transmission. For this purpose, the BMW Group India will reach educational institutes and students in every state and union territory in India and provide 365 BMW engine and transmission units at no cost. “I strongly feel that initiatives like Skill Next will promote development of automotive engineering skills in our country. It is an opportunity for technical students in every state and union territory to get directly trained on BMW engine and transmission. I could have never played cricket by just reading about it, I had to be hands-on with the game. Similarly, this initiative will make it easier for the students to understand automotive technology through first-hand experience,” Sachin, who is very fond of long drives at night, opined.
