Today , Sushil Kumar made us proud by winning a bronze medal at the Beijing Olympics. Undoubtedly, It is an achievement. But India which stands second to China in population doesn’t stand second to China in medals tally..Why?’
Ask the Indian Government for this..and you’ll come across a hell lot of politics that stand in between the way of the player and the medal.. And even in the print and electronic media where once upon a time we used to see the the status of the cricket match as the main headline in a news edition and cricket used to occupy the front page in the newspapers and magazines and some magazines extensively and exhaustively dedicated for the same…good for cricket..but not good for other sports..but slowly, I feel other sports are being seen on the same ground as cricket is seen these days..
Another reason why there aren’t many champions in the sports arena from India is that people especially a section of parents really cant see their son or daughter as an engineer or a doctor having a white collared job earning well…I hope this scenario in India changes for the better and I wish to see India shining in all the areas and should be on the world map for each and every positive development.
