Congrats Abhinav Bindra!!

I just loved the Indian national anthem “Jana Gana Mana Adhinayaka Jaya He….” orchestrate loud and ever-inspiring as it’s always on that moment of golden triumph of this young shooter. They say that it’s an individual gold for India in olympics after 3 decades. Everyone knows its’ far more credible than a team effort. I feel *great* but not as jubilant as i should be after hearing what his father had to say,

“We had used most of our savings from our business to support him for all his needs. Yeah…government did help when we asked for any help, but it should understand for winning this medal they (sportspersons & atheletes) need far more support and resources.”

Because at a global level, there is no compromise. Everyone is equal. No one will listen to the fact that in here they (shooters) get around only one-third of practice required as compared to their counterparts just because of shortage of ammos. This applies to _any_ other field…you just name it. Maybe this can pave way to one those silver linings… 🙂
