Sadly, My country has won fewer Olympic medals than Phelps

Tuesday, August 19, 2008

As Abhinav Bindra bowed his head to receive the gold medal, the Indian national anthem was played out for the first time in Beijing Olympics, A proud moment for every Indian. He became the first Indian to win an individual gold medal at the Olympic Games. A century long wait has finally ended.

There may be several reasons for India's poor performance at the Olympics, I guess you might have come across many articles highlighting the same shame again and again. Recently, I came across this picture which can instantly put billion Indians in melancholy.

Really it hurts!! More heart breaking is we can not qualify in Olympic for our national game. But everybody has to work towards this. We have the potential because of more than billion population. Cricket is not only game in the world. If everybody understands and feels proud in watching and supporting other sportsmen of our nation then we surely will be at top.
