The Medalists...


Last time I saw Indians standing for the national anthem was when the Indian badminton player Saina Nehwal became the common wealth games’2010 champion in the individual event. Today when I stood up once again for our national anthem in a movie theater, I quickly thanked all the players because of whom Indian national anthem hit our hearts 38 times during the recent CWG, Delhi.


Standing in a theater and listening to the national anthem is nothing before securing a gold medal and let the crew play the national anthem as our flag fly high and our pride do rounds around the country. Being the reason behind it, how all those players could have managed those hair-rising moments? What actually those players were thinking while the national anthem was on! This thought itself is very interesting and fascinating as well.


People wondered how could have Mr. Abhinav Bindra, the only man to win an Olympic gold for India so far, stood proud, managed or rather controlled his own emotions, while his country’s national anthem was being played on the world’s biggest stage because of his own achievement. Though his answer for this was simple, dealing with the situations would have been the toughest than aiming at the gold itself!


I know I’m very late. Nevertheless, I take this as an opportunity to thank and salute all those players of CWG for participating and for winning millions’ hearts. Always winning a medal is different; hearty congratulations to all the medalists, especially the gold medalists because of whom India ended number two in the medals tally.

Pramoda,

You did not wish to have comments for the previous one, is it? Anyways, why do we hate a person? In my thinking it is beacause that person denies us access to something which we love. So that is it. Now on this one, when National Anthem is played because of achievements of someone, his or her feelings are totally overwhelming beyond words. And all said and done, the show went off well beyond expectations. May be the media went overboard with negative reporting, there were flaws surely and the guilty must face the music now.

Take care

PS : I left comment on earlier post too which I read today.

I can't seem to comment on your post on Rakht Charitra - everyone who saw it gave me awful reviews so I do not wish to watch it :D even though your review is not exactly in line with their's!
I think hate is a very strong emotion - disliking someone is ok but hate is too strong a word to be used casually...similar is the case of love and like in my opinion :D

Thr r 2 sides to everything: thr is happiness and sadness. When we dont feel joy, it makes us sad.
Similarly when we lose something we love, we experience hate!!

That's a simplistic u'standing of that issue :D
